Most Chinese Martial Arts have focused not just on empty hand fighting but also on the use of weapons, in street combat situations. Iron Palm training focuses on training the body so that it can be used as a weapon in hand to hand combat.
It is also important to be aware that in a street fight situation, there is every possibility of your opponent managing to get past your defence and get a puch or kick through to your body. With this awareness in mind, the martial artist must not just focus on attack and defence, but also on the all important body conditioning. To develop Iron Palm, the student must go through various practices to strengthen ones hands and body. Development of Iron Palm at GDSMA is done on a gradual and logical progression manner. As the Great Master Confucius said " Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous" Sifu Rajvir is a genuine Iron Palm practitioner with over a decade of experience in practicing numerous different methods of Iron Palm.
