The Gassankan ( 月山館) or "Moon and Mountain Hall" is a training activity located in Seattle, led by Mark Raugas. We focus our practice on:
- Chinese Internal Martial Arts: Bagua Zhang, Xingyi Quan, and Taiji Quan
- Classical Japanese Swordsmanship: Jiki Shinkage-ryu Heiho
The name of the school was chosen because it was while visiting the Gassan Dai Jinja ( 月山大神社 ) shrine on Mt. Haguro in the Dewa Sanzan ( 出羽三山 ) area of Yamagata Prefecture, and the Hagurosan Kōtakuji Shōzenin ( 羽黒山荒沢寺正善院 ) in Haguro-machi, I decided to commit my full efforts towards learning classical and traditional martials arts.
