    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Started an Iron Palm Group Here on Bullshido

    Chinese Martial Art Mavens,

    I just began Iron Palm training. Several reasons:

    1) I like kung fu movies
    2) I like moving meditations
    3) I read some threads that Dale Dugas contributed to
    4) I was having some hand problems when doing Muay Thai

    I started a group here on Bullshido to discuss all things Iron Palm related. There has been a thread or two debating the merits of the training, but I thought it would be cool to have a place for practitioners to swap stories etc.

    Anyhow, right now I am mostly talking to myself in the group (I'm a psychologist so I'm fine with hearing myself talk all day) but if any other interested parties want to join the group, here's the link

    This is a terrible idea. Especially the part where you, right off the bat, declare that you're going to ignore part of the training protocol because you find it too hard (abstaining from alcohol).

    Alcohol use facilitates capillary dilation, which can lead to breaking. This is why it's barred in any sort of "smack mah body part against a bag o' beans" training, lord. Get off the sauce or you'll just end up with silly red hands and reduced circulation.

    Damn, I've already caused an intervention!

    I mostly just drink on weekends, and rarely to excess these days. That was mostly a throw-away joke and I didn't think it was that important. According to the protocol I am following, you strictly shouldn't engage in sexual activity either, but it was suggested that one "use common sense" by keeping in mind that you want to have plenty of energy at the times that you're doing the meditations and hitting the bag.

    I don't think any member of Bullshido should engage in any activity that might lead to reproduction.

    Just follow the protocol and stop making up excuses to avoid doing things that require willpower.

    I work and train pretty hard so I'm not a stranger to willpower. I'm just trying to fit this new training into my life. I get your point though Cullion and will give your advice some thought.

    If I were in that line of work, I would probably start drinking too. The Iron Palm stuff may come in handy too. If you have a patient who wines a lot, or gets out of line, a crisp Iron Palm back hand across the face could bring them back to reality.

    The closest thing I could find to an iron palm face-palm....the perfect reaction to my continued noob-ery.
