    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Those are blocks that I got from Lowes. They store them under cover from the sun and they were cold as the temps here are in the late 50's the past week.

    I do not bake anything or let them sit in the sun. That would be cheating and of no use to me as a gauge of my Iron Palm ability.



    Be well, train hard

    That was awesome!

    I have a related question, if you don't mind.

    When I was studying traditional karate, I used to break fairly sturdy wooden boards. However, I always had to focus, breath, and do the whole "Karate Kid" thing before hand. As such, I was never able to hit that hard while sparring.

    When you do it, though, you have hardly any delay. No "Powering Up" or other lengthy "Focusing" techniques.

    If I was a pro fighter, and I saw someone casually snap a brick in two with a backhand...call me crazy, but I'd like to know how they did that.

    Yet you never see or hear about it being used in competitive combat sports.

    Why is that?

    Is there a HUGE time commitment to getting this skill to a usable level?

    Are the mechanics non-transferable to live combat sports?

    Hell, with the popularity of MMA, wouldn't Ground and Pound be a perfect scenario to use these techniques?

    What are your thoughts on this?

    (Please don't think I'm being antagonistic. In fact, I've recently started studying Lung Ying in addition to BJJ, and I'm thoroughly screwed on trying to generate "Short Waist Power"...so I'm personally vested and may soon be purchasing your materials via your websites)

    Im actually in the middle of writing an article about how old school programs such as Iron Palm can be tremendous help to MMA fighters in the ability to unload without much effort or windup once you have inculcated the training into your movement.

    Its a long program(2 years to set the foundation) but the dividends keep paying off for you.

    I think wrapping your hands is rather silly when you can just hit them and hurt them if you have to.

    Do you have someone with the training fighting now?
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Who has fought for you in the past? I'd like to see something that "looks like kung fu" in the ring and I get the feeling your students would

    Many of the people I have taught have been private students from all over the nation seeking me out as they wanted to learn what I can do. Funny that I have more people from out of state come train with me than people in state( I live in MA)

    Most if not all my students are interested in real world self defence and not sport applications. Not that I wouldnt teach mma people who are interested. But I dont get many of those people knocking at my door very much.
