The Walking Circle LLC is a modern publisher of software, fiction, and instructional materials. Located in Wichita Kansas The Walking Circle LLC started as a website providing internal martial art related instruction, wisdom, and history. It was the first martial art related website to leverage all the formats available on the internet to impart martial art knowledge to a broad audience.

The content from those early versions of the website was reworked and presented in my first title Earth Dragon Canon--Walking, Martial Arts, Self Evolution.

While thewalkingcircle.com was a good format for my experiences with Baguazhang and Taijiquan, I found that I struggled using that format to share my other passions. You can now find that additional content on coding, politics, and religion, (you know all that stuff you're not supposed to discuss in public) on The Dapper Genius.

Meanwhile I will continue to use The Walking Circle to share my passions with the internal martial arts of Baguazhang, Taijiquan, and Xingyiquan. Most of this content will be available for you to use through a Creative Commons license so you can use it on your own website or other publications. I use and contribute to open source software every day, and thought it was appropriate to apply the same practice to my writing here.
