Samir Rawas Sarayji is training Dao Lu (Chi Kung, Tai Chi, and Lu Kung Fu) since May 2005 at Fire Dragon. His love for the art and its usefulness to his well-being has made him a devoted student for life – training 10 to 20 hours a week. In 2009 he started teaching and giving workshops.

Samir has also had a brief background training in boxing, Tae Kwon Do, and Hatha Yoga, prior to choosing the path of least resistance: Dao Lu. Samir adopted the Taoist philosophy because of its harmony with nature and life. In 2016 he became a vegan.


Samir has lived in Nigeria and Spain, before settling in the Netherlands. He holds degrees in Mathematical Sciences and in English and Literature. When not teaching or training, he will most likely have his head buried in a book.



If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.

–Haruki Murakami
