Inner Dharma

Inner Dharma is focused on classical and traditional martial arts and culture. Here you will find a description of both my training background and current activities, as well as references and resources I recommend.

The Gassankan or "Moon Mountain School" is a martial arts training activity located in Seattle focused on developing skill in classical and traditional approaches to internal martial arts. The name Gassankan is inspired by the Dewa Sanzan area of Japan. It was when visiting the Gassan Dai Jinja Shinto Shrine on Mt. Haguro and the Hagurosan Shozen-in temple of Haguro Shugendo in Haguro-machi that I decided to shift my focus from practicing modern jujutsu towards learning classical and traditional martial arts.
