Tommy Justice says… I have used this Bak Fu Pai jow for years, this brand is the best. Most true to the original formula I tried in China back in the 80s.
Sifu Charles says… Appreciate this jow; Cao Chong’s Liniment has been a first choice in my Dojo for years. My students have certainly benefited from using it.
Coop Jacobsen says… This full-sized herb kit is an investment, but sometimes you can't go cheap. In the case of the Big Hand Jow the return undeniably compensates for the cost.
Ahmed says… Golden Lotus DDJ is an oldie but a goodie. This is a great dit da jow.
BarryK says… Thunder Hands made this jow; it is extremely potent. I am very impressed with this Grandmaster Wei jow.
JWeeks says… I bought this Mew Hing Clouds in Heaven formula in 2005. I just returned to the States after training in Beijing. It's a very good brew. Great all-purpose Jow.
Joseph says… This jow is exceptional. I'm pleased with its healing abilities as well as how it conditions my hands.
Stanley Morton says… Tiger Exits is a great dit da jow. I tried the ready-made version first, which was very potent, then decided for cost saving measures to make my own. After aging it for one year, I tapped it and found it was a bit weaker than the ready-made jow I purchased from seaofchi.com. So I called Judy Joiner who tells me all of their premade dit da jow are aged for 2 years or more, so I put it away for another year. I'm here today to tell you -- after 2 years this jow was very powerful. Couldn't ask for better results.
Randy James says… This is the finest Wing Chun jow that I've sampled. In comparison others seem diluted. Nicely done seaofchi.com.
Iron Palm & Dit Da Jows
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.
