    Do you think that if we keep insulting him, he will come back for more?
    I kind of miss him.
    It was fun to hear him talk about people hurting themselves to increase their skills.
    Ah, the memories.

    I chatted to an older TKD instructor once who said he broke his hands 5 times punching the heavy bag. He was boasting about it and also that he had taught many students how to punch. My comment was if you hit the bag and break your hand once you should have improved the safety of the punch so it didnt happen again. Then the fact that he had taught many students how to punch unsafely was virtually criminal. Also its worth mentioning the more you break your bones the more likely they are to break in future.

    My view is with maximum safety you will be able to hit as hard as you possibly can with the least risk of self damage. Thats why elbow, knee and head butt strikes can be so deadly - they are safe, hard parts of the body so people can put their full weight into it without hurting themselves. The fist is not - it takes real development to punch safely with very solid impact. I know a doctor who treats broken fists every Saturday night down at the local emergency room - they are all drunk guys.

    That's like saying that if I hire someone to kick me in the sack, I will gain the ability to shrug off any ball shots that might come my way.
    'Sides, few opponants have the constitution of a bag of lead.
    Overkill is never a bad thing, unless it hurts you as well.

    If you are tyring to describe Iron palm, you do not "beat" you hand on the bag. In fact, You do not deform anything. And yes it will teach you to hit like a mother fucker. and no it does not make any rational sense. But based on your description of the training drill, I do not think you have ever been exposed to it.

    This guy has pretty much devoted his life to "Iron Hand".

    Seems to me like the CMA version of :hitit:

    I just recalled a show on Discovery Channel a while back involving MA. I think this is the guy they spotlighted in reference to Iron Whatever. If I remember correctly, he stated that he can no longer tap his fist on anything but a metal plate because his fist destroys everything it touches. However, I don't seem to recall if he actually practiced any fighting art. The only usefulness that comes to mind for this is "Myso Go Nyjitsu" and "Wi Fe Be Ting Kung Fu"

    Iron hand, fist, and palm are three different things.

    I'd have posted a pic of someone with extremely calloused palms, but I doubt anyone wants to see the blind boy holding a dead kitten. :jerkit2yf

    No, I have not.
    But from what I hear coming from you, I'm not sure what sane human being would want to.
    Please describe the exercise again, this time telling me exactly what you do with the bag of lead shot that does not involve striking it repeatedly at full force.

    You just let your hand fall on it. No pain involved.

    If somebody wants to know, you just relax your arm drop it. There is a snapping type motion at the point of impact. You do not do a full force swing to hit the bag.

    Also at least in iron palm, you are striking with the palm of your hand, the knife edge, and the back of your hand. Therefore the only part that is really hitting bones is when you backfist.

    I have seen plenty of people that have went through the training program, and there is no disfiguring. My instructor hits his hand everyday and has for a long time and the only thing you can notice by looking at his hand is there is a pad like section on the top of his hand (maybe a 1/4 inch higher than his other hand). Kind of like your forearm after doing 3 star for a while, if anyone does that.
