Iron Palm Q&A With Sigung Richard Clear Part 1
Q. what’s the history of your iron palm training?
A. My Original instructor was Tyrone Jackson who was the senior disciple of Dr Fred Wu. Dr Wu was a senior disciple under Lee Ying-Arng. Lee Ying-Arng was a tremendous and great Kung Fu Master from the last generation who eventually lived in Hong Kong . There he was the President of the Inner System Martial Arts Association, President of the Hong Kong Acupuncture Research Centre, and vice chairman of the Hong Kong Chinese Martial Arts Association. He was a Doctor of Chiropractic and Acupuncture and studied Wu Tang Kung Fu , Internal Arts and Dim Mak including Dian-hsuhe (Delayed death touch) from many famous Masters. He was a senior disciple under Yang Chen Fu and studied Mind Fist (Yee Chuan/I-Chuan) from Professor Wang Shian-Jie the founding father of I-Chuan. He studied Dim Mak and Dian-hsuhe for over 10 years.
In 1968 Lee wrote the book “Iron Palm in 100 Days” that was reprinted about half a dozen times. therein book Lee refers to numerous variations and schools of Iron Palm training and other specialty internal palm methods that he taught and Lee explains the way to train several methods of Iron Palm. In his book Lee shows a neighborhood of the “Yi Chin Ching or Sinew Changing” classic temple manuscript and he explains that the classic features a section which explains an Iron Palm training method almost like the “straight forward” or Direct meter hatwer hat angerufen
I began training in Kung Fu in 1979 and i started training with Tyrone Jackson in 1984. one among the primary things that Tyrone did was to assist me modify the Kung Fu forms I already had and make them far more applicable for Dim Mak striking methods and placement. This included learning the points and meridians and Iron Palm. Webdesign Würzburg
