I like it. My hands will be like steel wool.
When I first made my account here on the forums back in 2007 I was just at the very end of my CMA career and doing some Iron Palm training. I actually kind of liked it, too. It almost felt like my hands were getting a nice massage as they felt loose and relaxed after training. Now I kind of wouldn't mind getting back into it, but by now my bag filled with rice and all of my Jow have been disposed of by the spousal unit.
Anybody got any recommendations on how to start back up? I wouldn't mind trying out somebody else's program. I have no issues abstaining from alcohol and I'm open to trying new methods. I don't know anybody that makes Jow any more, so does anybody have a pre-made Jow recommendation I can find online?
I am doing Dale Dugas' basic training. I have had your same experience: like a pulsing massage feeling. Check out his website coilingdragon.com. He sells canvas bags jow herbs training Dvds you name it.
Checking it out now, thanks!
I think I can get a bag put together for free. Just got to ask my father-in-law to put one together. He's a great canvas worker. I'll definitely need Jow, though. My old hook-up for it is waaaay out of contact, now!
I cant claim to know much about Chinese medicine but sifu dugas' jow smells good, he has a degree in acupuncture, and he is well respected here on bullshido.
I trust Mr. Dugas. I'll probably grab an herb pack from him in a week or so. Financial problems. Already have the bag out of the way, though.
I've made the decision to swear off alcohol for the next 100days of iron palm training. Maybe it'll help me to lose a couple of pounds too.
I just want to say goodbye to a good friend of mine
I'll see you again in 3-ish months old pal.
I salute you for your taste in beer, lordbd. I've never tried that one, but I'm a big dark beer drinker. Lots of Left Hand Milk Stout, Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, Guinness Foreign Extra, and plenty of others. I'll have to stop soon, too. But it's going to take a while before I have everything I need squared away, so I have a couple of weeks at least.
I'm assuming that the iron palm system that you practiced previously also recommended abstaining?
