Format: Hardcover
Presented with little fanfare and mysticism, this practical guide has probably influenced thousands of martial artists. More than a how-to book, Lee Ynig-arng presents the 100-day iron palm training method in its historical context, including the story of legendary Ku Yu Cheong, who could shatter stacks of bricks placed directly on the floor. In fact, in this book there is an account supported by none other than Eagle Claw's Lau Fot-mang of Ku actually killing a horse with a palm strike (page 8).

Devoid of all allusions to secrecy or "the secrets are too great for you grasshopper" arrogance, Iron Palm training methods were presented for the first time in English by this book. All you need to know about training, equipment, medicine, theory, and history. Simple and direct in presentation, a useful primer for this fascinating combative component.

Also included is a complete translation of Shaolin Monk Poon Shin's "Secret Discourse on the Use of the Palm" in Chinese and english, with a complete explanation in English. Chapters include:

1. Origin of Iron Palm

2. Formal Exercises in Relation to Basic Exercises

3. Basic Exercises in Relation to age

4. Basic Exercises in Relation to Medication

5. Three Important Requisits in Training

6. Different Methods

7. Lee's Hundred Dy Method (Equipment, Method, Medication, Precautions, Other Measures, Testing Out)

8. The Application of the Palm in Defense (Slapping, Throwing, Cutting, Stamping, Dotting)

9. The "All-Roung" Method of Training (Salient Features, Method itself)

10. Explanatory Notes & Translation on the "Secret Discourse on the Use of the Palm"

11. Questions & Answers

Of definite historical value.

16 of 20 people found the following review helpful By john f brado on December 26, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This is a very excellent book. The training information contained in this book is of the highest quality and it applies to, and can be used by, all martial artists regardless of individual style. It is very sad that this book is out of print - what a tremendous loss. This book being out of print is a modern day example of how the ancient knowledge of our martial arts ancestors becomes lost to future generations. Very sad. I am glad that I already own a copy. John Frank Brado, Director/Chief Instructor, Combat Martial Art Practitioners Association.

Format: Hardcover
This book was first published in 1962 and though I was not that impressed with it when I first read it, upon reviewing it again I did find it of value from a historical perspective.

It covers various aspects of using the palm strike and how to develop it for the maximum amount of power. The photographs are not very clear; nevertheless, this book is of value because it approaches the subject without using mystical and irrational terms to explain how to develop a strong palm strike.

In conclusion, this is a book for anyone who is interested in the martial arts.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Use of the Monadnock Straight Baton).
