Does anyone train in Iron Palm? If you do, what form of training do you do and who is your Sifu. I train under Sifu John Newberry, Hes a Master of Iron Palm skills under the Iron Palm International Org. He has some cool photos at www.prayingmantiskungfu.com. (http://www.prayingmantiskungfu.com.) He trains useing the bag method and makes his own kickass dit-da-jow.

We do basic iron palm in class.
we work on palms backs of hands against backs of hands
A drill that works on forearms and lower legs(its a drill done in pairs)
I realised that class work isnt enough on its own so i asked my sifu about training at home and he's going to set up a private home lesson for me to learn bag methods (build up to mungbean filled bags). Hes keen to teach because it does take time to develope iron palm and he says people tend to over train it to compensate for starting it late in their training (eg 500 strikes palm/backhand/knifehand)which does more bad than good. He reckons on about a year to notice a great difference. i ve used da jit dow in class and was a bit sceptical,( i'm from a biology background),but it does seem to prevent bruising and has got some anesethetic properties.
I cant get your link to work and i'm keen to find out more on iron palm.
Any suggestions greatfully accepted :)

I am not training in the Iron Palm as of yet , it's kept pretty secretive at our school. I am not shure but I believe it is taught as you make your move from Assisstant Instructor to Instructor. There are two types of typical Iron Palm Skills, those are internal and external , the external takes a shorter time to acheive, however it has no healing possibilities like the internal method offers.
E-Mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be very happy to give you the link to our school , however I don't wish to post it for the many without permission from my Sifu.
