All forms of iron palm and hand conditioning are a gradual controlled process… prior to beginning a hand conditioning regimen there have always been basic concepts that need to be considered. Within these principles there are several points that cannot be over emphasized. First and foremost, the student is advised to use herbal medicine (dit da jow) to repair the residual damage associated with all of the different forms of hand conditioning in order to avoid any permanent harm. Secondly, the novice is told to exercise prudence in the amount of training that is undertaken. And lastly, the student is reminded to never forget the wisdom in proceeding slowly.
The herbal prescriptions that are used to counteract the process’s inherent negative side-effects contain ingredients that toughen the skin, harden the bones, and prevent blood clots and bruising.
At seaofchi.com we offer a variety of dit da jow formulas. Some are specific to a particular style, while others are more general purpose. We also carry hand conditioning formulas originally written on silk in Chinese character dating back many centuries. Our hand-conditioning formulas come in two different forms, ready-to-use (already prepared and aged) or those that you must prepare into a jow. We consider the latter the more economical choice, we supply the herbs and you’ll need to mix the herbs with alcohol and then age the formula. All of our formulas come with complete instructions on how to prepare the jow.
Some Jow instructions require that the ingredients be ground prior to aging. We can do that for you for a $10.00 powdering fee. If you wish to have a formula powdered check the appropriate box during the checkout.
Note: Many of the jows presented on this page must be prepared into a jow. To gain access to just those jows that are pre-made click to this page: premade-jows-316
