    I've worked in a lot of tiger techniques before. Kind of excited to go back to training Hung Ga in a month or two, I want to finish (or start learning all over again) Gung Gee Fook Fu Kuen.. and start IP light on some mung beans. 'Tis good medicine for de' body mon. Between that and BJJ I'm not going to have a life ever.

    Brothers,

    I am an Acupuncturist who needles people with very thin needles. If IP was bad when trained correctly I would not be able to needle my patients.

    I have NO issues with dexterity or fine motor skills after training on a metal shot bag for over 20 years.

    I have followed Dales guidelines where possible and haven't had any hand problems. I actually STOPPED having pain from doing mitt and bag work (no idea why it was an issue to begin with but it disappeared after some IP time.)

    Any advice for year 2 Dale?

    relax, learn to rid the body of excessive tension and get softer in your motions.

    connect with the ground vector, and relax.

    My concern is more short term then I suppose, I know how hard it is to draw some days after lifting hard (esp. deadlifts and other grip challenging lifts). Shouldn't last extremely long though?

    My hands do not get tired much. The medicinal liniments used in the training help increase circulation and help heal any injuries. You could use the liniment to help minimize soreness from training them hard.

    Yes, I really do sing this to myself when applying liniment, to the tune of the Meow Mix commercial.

    I know it's silly, but it's become a sort of dit da jow ritual for me.
