Plum Dragon Herbs

Dit Da Jow | Hung Gar Iron Palm Formula (Level 2) (Herb Packs)


Circulated throughout Southern Kung Fu, Plum Dragon Herbs & Dit Da Jow offers this intricate Iron Palm recipe, which shares most of its ingredients with the Ku Yu Cheong Iron Palm formula. While this recipe is quite similar, it has continued to evolve and is unique in its own right. We apply all the traditional preparation techniques and trade secrets in creating this herb pack to perform optimally for iron palm training--this is *not* an injury liniment.

Among the list of over 25 herbs in this iron palm dit da jow, some are rare and difficult to procure, and quite expensive. This herb pack contains all the obscure herbs and Pao Zhi with nothing held back! Now, it is available at PlumDragon for those interested in working with this liniment.

LEVEL 2: The big hand recipe adds sizable quantities of Bai Hua She, Wu Shao She, Hai Long (whenever available), and other powerful herbs to the Level 1 recipe that are appropriate for advanced training, including striking of harder mediums. This formula will greatly enhance the "charge" in the hands over Level 1, providing a different type of experience.

This product has some potent herbs. Please exercise caution when performing iron palm routines and use this dit da jow properly.

****Do not allow the liniment to contact cuts, scrapes, broken skin, eyes or mouth and apply this liniment only to the area being conditioned.****

Hung Gar Dit Da Jow

Finally I found a source for these herbs without a trip to a state 12 hours away! I know it isn't exactly the same as the traditional one, but it is so very close! Perfect for after moving several times further and further away from our Hung Gar home.
