Style: Kung Fu
I have been practicing Kung Fu for over a decade now and I cannot find any "real" information on how to build iron finger. I am specifically looking for help on a training regimen that over time - will develop the necessary finger strength that is so needed for my style. The other factor is this training can hurt me if done wrong.... especially the results won't happen for a long time so wasted time is a concern too. Please help anyone. I have searched the net for days and don't have any local practioners on the subject. Also, I am quite aware that this is only for the responsible and worthy student - which I am. Thanks....

WTF is the problem WhiteSharky???
Iron finger is a legitimate request. Perhaps you know absolutely nothing about this or you do and I am sooooo unworthy of your wonderful godly wisdom... I think that I have a feel for this webforum now. Consider me broken in now. Should I ask the question in a different way?
Hello, I am new to this forum and thought that there were people here who understood martial arts as an art. If you are a master of a style then you are a master of nothing so those of you who are studying like me and need information that is most often impossible to pull out of our ass, then please help me learn the proper techniques for building iron finger. I will contribute to this site with what I have learned as well. After all, this is an art not a science - for those of you who are conditioned to think that their method or style is the absolute of everything given to us hear on earth, you have a long way to go. For those of you who are kind, considerate, patient, and helpful,... thank you very much!

BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

Omega is a big proponent of fingers, perhaps you should ask him to show you the finger?

Oh, I forgot. Omega can help you with the finger. Sorry.

Funny.... maybe I can do a "sit and spin" on it too....
Seriously, there are many "Omega" contacts on this forum. Do you have specifics???
Yes, I am smarter than you are.

I trained with Master Stephen Herring who was a master of Iron Palm in Maryland, his Iron Finger training method is as follows:
First, purchase a 2lb rubber mallet.
Second, find a flat, hard surface such as a granite countertop.
Third, place the finger which you desire to train on the hard surface.
Fourth, grip the mallet in your other hand.
Fifth, Give the mallet a good swing and hit the training finger with it.
Report back to me on the results and I can give you further direction.
Should I feel bad if he does this?
