This raw herb prescription is sold in an herb kit that once prepared makes one gallon+ dit da jow.
This jow was transcripted from a hand-written prescription from Master Yee’s Hung Gar Kung Fu Academy. Frank Yee is considered by many to be one of the foremost teachers of Hung Gar in the US; he is a Hung Gar practitioner and disciple of Yueng Ling. He is well known for his martial ability as well as his medical skills which were used to create this highly regarded hand conditioning jow.
The legendary Hung Gar Master’s Dit Da Jow is a traditional Hung Gar hand-conditioning formula that consists of twenty-one ingredients, including: san chi, tao ren, mu gua, ru xiang, and su mu.
Continued use of this formula will toughen the skin; strengthen the bones, and increases circulation of Blood and Chi.
This Hung Gar Jow formula is a highly effective combination of herbal ingredients designed for iron palm and martial arts training. It contains herbs famous for their ability to strengthen the tendons, ligaments, bones and sinews and it will relieve pain and swelling.
This dit da jow should be used by rubbing the liquid into the hands, feet, arms and legs (do not rub into the torso or on the face/head). This dit da jow should be applied before and after each workout. Allow the jow to fully penetrate and remain on the body for 30 minutes prior to washing it off. We will provide step-by-step instructions on how to prepare and use this jow with your herbal kit.
Making your own jow is a simple process, just add the herbal kit (pour the herbs) into a large glass container and then mix in 1 gallon of your choice in alcohol type (traditionally Chinese rice wine is used or sake, but you may also use vodka, brandy or gin). Secure the lid and set the bottle in a cool, dark place – completely free of sunlight. Allow to sit (age) for a minimum of 3 months – 365 days is preferred. The longer you age it the better the jow!
One and two gallon glass jars with a lid are readily available on the internet; let us know if you need a link to an online retailer.
