    To use Iron Palm, I think you have to be like the villain from "Iron Monkey" and slap Rongguang Yu and Donnie Yen around or something.

    If you still dont believe Iron Palm works, go try break a brick yourself. If your muscles arnt enough, and you need stronger bone, then you are wrong. If you dont even have muscle, go to the fuckin gym.
    The bricks from that test aren't hard to break. Almost anyone can put their hand through a stack of them. They aren't much stronger then the dry pine used in karoddy demos.

    Breaking two of them laid on top of one another is about like breaking 6-8 of them spaced with pencils. The spacers are KEY to making the trick look effortless.

    Notice I said trick? That's all breaking these bricks is. A silly trick. It doesn't take hard bones or iron palm. And, yes, a person who was sincerely trying could run a sledgehammer through the stack much more cleanly.

    Tenchu stated that he is a pro MT fighter - as someone stated, it would be nice to have some proof of this, it would add to your argument if anything.

    No, his argument would still be shite. Even if he's a great fighter, he'd still be wrong. Oh course, with the shuttling between thailand and wudang mountain probably keeps him too wrapped up to be able to give his name, fight record, or any credible evidence. Besides Fight Science...

    No idiots type in purple to try and prove a point.

    Have trained in a lot of different styles breifly, so have a lot of understanding. But am most skilled in Muay Thai, then Wing Chun, then Brazilian Jiu Jutsu.

    Ninjutsu is a interest for me.
    Are you going to provide evidence of your Professional MT record. You've been training with Bryan Lee (aka ar549) haven't you?

    Troll.

    What is the difference between iron palm training and what MT fighters do to their shins to make them hard as granite?
    This is a serious n00b question I am not trying to be a smart ass or anything

    A to Q: MT fighters don't condition their shins on rocks, metal or anything that hard. The shin conditioning that MT fighters do consist of shin-to-shin contact and hitting the heavy bag, and in more exotic cases, kicking a banana tree (which trunk is also quite flexible). If I were to get scientifical, I'd say the shin conditioning is more about building calluses, deadening the nerves and removing the innate psychological fear of kicking using the shin - but those I'm not sure about. Anyway, it's about a 100 times safer than kicking a metal or rock pole.

    To Tenchu again: If you do not provide a name, a record, and proof that you are who you say you are (a pro MT fighter), your opinion here is worth **** and you will be dismissed as another guy to mock at. My advice, just do this or go away.

    I dont have a fight record. I am pro fighter, but begginer. I mean I fight in professional fights. I completely skipped the ametuer phase. The gym in Thailand I train at has courses that consist of 4 levels. Mauy Thai 1, takes a couple of weeks, as do 2 and 3. The final course is Muay Thai 4, it takes 3 or 4 months to complete, and the final test you have to do a professional fight at the gym at their stadium where you train.

    Here, check the gym site out: http://www.muaythai-institute.net/

    Notice it says you MUST do a pro fight to complete the full time course. Thailand does not have an ametuer league in Muay Thai really. You enter the ring and you are there for one reason and one reason only, trying to get a gold. I posted a pic of me out front of that gym in the intro thread, but here it is again:

    http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p...gher/Bow_1.jpg

    So no, I dont have a huge fight record, only done a few. But I am trying for some wins, and planning on entering k1 and UFC soon enough. Oh, and just as so you know, I have more experience in fighting than just the several months full time I have spent at this gym, I started when I was 14. And was in Army too, machine gunner in the infantry.

    DHNK: Muay Thai shin conditioning is the same as iron palm. Iron Palm that I saw under Grand Master William Chueng back home in Melbourne, they would use sandbags, which did flex slightly. Useing stone and metal is dangerous to the bone joints. Chinese will not do this, it is stupid or misguided if they do. The traditional Muay Thai method is as you say, banana trees. Yet the trees are cut into meter long pieces, and tied to a large wooden tree, and then kicked, so they dont move. Ultimatley, it is pretty much the same as hiting a sandbag, but slightly juicy. The effect is it deadens nerves, like you say, and also increases bone density. I know this for a fact. This is why I mock you guys so much about iron palm. None of you are showing the common knowledge to admit it true, and you say you guyz train? When I first started Muay Thai I would bruise the bones every day, and then have to rest for 3 days or so. Now the bones are harder and stronger, from training, and they never bruise. Iron palm, iron shin, it is the same thing. The impact creates tiny fractures, as it says in fight science, and when the fractures heal, the bones are more solid and dense. As it said in fight science. And as you guys nock fight science vid so much, do you remember, the guys breaking stuff did do some strikes on concrete without the spacers used. Yes, there were not as many bricks, but about 5 or so, i think.

    The fact you guyz dis iron palm so much only shows your lack of training. The ENTIRE Muay Thai and Wushu comunity know it is fact the bones can be strengthened through safe and controled bashing of them. Bones are not dead, they are alive, like muscles. They heal, like muscles. You break em, just a little bit, like weightlifter does to his muscles, then they heal back stronger. Every Muay Thai and Wushu fighter who is competant in their style knows this, the fact you guys dont say your interaction with these comunities is very limited.

    Next time you want to nock someone, take a look in the mirror first and see if you dont need a bit of nockin yourself first.
