Training with Mark Rasmus

Classes are usually 6 to 12 people. Mark demonstrates every drill on every students when practical. Many classes are held in forests where the energy is strong. Students are encouraged to video all the drills being taught and to record the theory and meditation sessions. The information being taught is open for development, there are no secrets or copyrights, everyone who shares and develops the system is asked to do so with an open heart.

In the 70s, Mark began his journey in Japanese martial arts. Within a few years, the family moved to a new country and his opportunity to taste many different styles arose.

After spending years exploring a range of arts including Tae Kwon Do, Silat, Kali, Escrima, Karate, Tai Chi and a range of Kung Fu systems, he finally settled into Wing Chun Kung Fu. In 1986, his instructor, John Dugan encouraged him to enter into the teaching profession.

While still a teenager, he opened his first Wing Chun school in Brisbane Australia. Mark then cross trained between Muay Thai and Wing Chun for the next decade. In 1988 he was introduced to William Cook Edwards, a metaphysics teacher who taught Franz Bardons system.

Within a short number of years studying with William, Mark was working as a psychic and healer. Before long the Hermetic and Martial sciences began to meld together.

In 1995, Mark began training in Tai Chi (Huang Shyan Sheng lineage) with Chris Heness, a Tong Long, Silat and Tai Chi master living in Queensland, Australia. This opened a huge range of understanding in internal martial arts principles further enhancing his teaching system.
