Iron Palm Part 1

Iron Palm Q&A With Sigung Richard Clear Part 1

Q. What is the history of your iron palm training?

A. My Original instructor was Tyrone Jackson who was the senior disciple of Dr Fred Wu. Dr Wu was a senior disciple under Lee Ying-Arng. Lee Ying-Arng was an amazing and great Kung Fu Master from the last generation who eventually lived in Hong Kong. There he was the President of the Inner System Martial Arts Association, President of the Hong Kong Acupuncture Research Centre, and Vice President of the Hong Kong Chinese Martial Arts Association. He was a Doctor of Chiropractic and Acupuncture and studied Wu Tang Kung Fu, Internal Arts and Dim Mak including Dian-hsuhe (Delayed death touch) from many famous Masters. He was a senior disciple under Yang Chen Fu and studied Mind Fist (Yee Chuan/I-Chuan) from Professor Wang Shian-Jie the Founder of I-Chuan. He studied Dim Mak and Dian-hsuhe for over 10 years.

In 1968 Lee wrote the book "Iron Palm in 100 Days" that was reprinted about half a dozen times. In that book Lee refers to numerous variations and schools of Iron Palm training and other specialty internal palm methods that he taught and Lee explains how to train several methods of Iron Palm. In his book Lee shows a section of the "Yi Chin Ching or Sinew Changing" classic temple manuscript and he explains that the classic has a section which explains an Iron Palm training method similar to the "straight forward" or Direct method.

I began training in Kung Fu in 1979 and I began training with Tyrone Jackson in 1984. One of the first things that Tyrone did was to help me modify the Kung Fu forms I already had and make them much more applicable for Dim Mak striking methods and placement. This included learning the points and meridians and Iron Palm. ...To be continued in "Iron Palm Part 2"

Iron Palm Part 3
Continued from Iron Palm Q&A With Sigung Richard Clear Part 2 I started studying Dr Wu's system of Kung Fu in 1982 from one of Dr Wu's other senior students and then I began studying from Tyrone in 1984. As a result I began training Iron Palm in 1984. I was not really seeking out Iron Palm. I had not heard enough about it to actively seek it. Iron Palm and Dim Mak were simply a part of the Kung Fu training we received. Once I began training I was hooked on it for awhile and then when...

Iron Palm Part 9
Continued from Iron Palm Q&A With Sigung Richard Clear Part 8 We used this liniment for any bruises we got and also for Iron Palm training. When we practiced the Indirect method and Internal Iron Palm Tyrone would have us put a few drops on our hands and massage it in to cause the energy to flow to our hands. In years since I have used a number of products including Oriental Herb Company products. For a lot of the specialty palms no jow or special herbal treatment is required and...

Iron Palm Part 11
Continued from Iron Palm Q&A With Sigung Richard Clear Part 10 I teach a 2 day course on the 1 Hit Knockouts combined with scenario training to executives and business owners including their wives and family members. About a dozen graduates of the course have had to use the training in a real confrontation where it became physical. In every case the attacker was either knocked out or incapacitated in some form and in the case of one attack the attacker got their arm broke on first...

Internal Iron Body
An attacker hits you. However, instead of wincing at the pain, you send the energy of the attack back into his arm. While your attacker thought you would be doubling over in pain, he is the one who is hurting. This isn't just something that happens in action movies or video games. This is the power of Tai Chi Chuan Iron Body. Iron Body training can be divided into two categories - and External Iron Body. External Iron Body is predominantly gained through repeatedly striking ones body on a...

Open Hand Basics Part 2 Of 2
Hit Like You Mean It Hitting through the target is more commonly practiced in the West. The hit is much more effective when it is led by the waist and when the intent is to hit through the target. One example is to dive through with your body weight behind the strike. Pukolan and Hsing-I both strike this way. Another kind of hit is to slap through, hitting with the body weight and friction. This is how basic burning palm works. Utilizing waist and knee power helps get the body into the...

Silat Walking Shaking Hands And Running Attacks
Silat uses constant motion as a defensive tool. However, Silat also trains practitioners in how to use motion as an offensive weapon as well. Three important techniques used in Silat are walking attacks, shaking hands attacks, and running attacks. These attacks are used to get close to the opponent quickly, psychologically intimidate the attacker, and do a lot of damage as quickly as possible in order to bring any altercation to a quick, successful close. Each of these attacks is aimed at...

Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM Part 2
Continued from tcm Part 1 If you look closely at most acupuncture charts you will usually see the meridian lines on the chart and the pressure points are on the lines. Most acupuncturists will first talk with the client/patient and have the patient fill out a questionnaire in much the same manner as a regular Western medical office. Then, the acupuncturist will do at least one version of Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis. There are many different diagnosis methods including but not...

continued from Why MMA is NOT Street Self Defense! Part 1 If someone steals your car (or any other personal possession) and they start driving it away right in front of you what is your best response. For a ring trained fighter the answer all to often has been to chase the criminal down. This has resulted in well known, respected and loved people being shot down by a criminal who was playing by street rules instead of sport rules. If someone commits road rage against you and after some sign...

Sports Fighting Versus Self Defense Fighting Part II The Techniques
Sports fighting can be amazing to watch. Participants in MMA and UFC competitions have to train rigorously in order to be able to win. However, the skills necessary to survive in bad street situations are not the same as those needed to win in martial arts tournaments.
