    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    My understanding is that iron palm is like any sort of conditioning, in that it toughens and strengthens the body part you are training to be more resistant to pain, injury, etc.

    I believe that Dale Duglas would be the best person to ask about Iron Palm.

    Well...I believe it probably works...but I don't see much practical usage of it....toughness is more important for blocking than for attacking and based on what I've seen, you don't go out of your way to block with your hands....

    You don't see the practical usage of hand conditioning for a fighter?

    Now granted, some people think IP is a waste of time and it doesn't work, but you're not one of them. So I don't get it, frankly.

    This makes absolutely no sense what so ever.

    In the early 90's I met a man who's last name was Lacey , he was what I believe the top iron palm style practioner the U.S at the time. He did an incredible live demonstration. I saw him featured in black belt magazine once. And sure some how you can track him down on the web and watch clips of his demonstrations.

    That footage from the early 1980s is eerily reminiscent of that 8mm hoax film clip of Bigfoot wandering through the woods.
