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.

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?

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.
