Inner Dharma hosted a blog on martial arts and culture from 2012-2017. I no longer maintain that collection of essays but continue to practice Chinese internal martial arts and classical Japanese swordsmanship in the Pacific Northwest.

I focus my efforts on internal body development through training in the arts of Bagua Zhang, Xingyi Quan, and Taiji Quan as taught in North American Yin Cheng Gong Fa and Kashima-shinden Jiki Shinkage-ryu kenjutsu as taught at the Hobyokan.

Inner Capture is my photography website, focused on capturing movement with available light and cultivating an aesthetic that evokes and illuminates the timeless quality of classical and traditional martial arts.

I am happy to provide pointers to groups I recommend for training in classical and traditional martial arts.
