Inner Dharma is a resource focused on classical and traditional martial arts. My name is Mark Raugas and I currently reside in the Pacific Northwest and focus my practice on internal martial arts and classical swordsmanshp. I currently maintain the following practices:
☴ Yin Cheng Gong Fa: I practice Yin, Cheng, & Liu Style Bagua Zhang, Hebei Style Xingyi Quan, and Northern Wu Style Taiji Quan as taught in North American Yin Cheng Gong Fa by Shifu Zhang Yun. I am the 40th chair indoor student of Zhang laoshi, whose teacher Wang Peisheng was one of the most skilled practitioners of internal martial arts in China.
☴ Jiki Shinkage-ryu Heiho: I focus my kenjutsu practice on arts taught at the Hobyokan of Dr. David Hall, where I learned Kashima-shinden Jiki Shinkage-ryu, one of the most powerful forms of classical Japanese swordsmanship. I hold a chuden menjo associated to my study of Jiki Shinkage ryu.
☴ Katori Shinto-ryu: I practiced Tenshinsho-den Katori Shinto-ryu at Capital Aikikai from 2005 to 2014, receiving the license of mokuroku under the auspices of Sugawara Budo. I continue to practice Shinto-ryu in a manner influenced by my study of Jiki Shinkage-ryu.
I am happy to provide links to recommended resources for training in classical and traditional martial arts.
