Who was Ku Yu Cheung ?

Ku Yu Cheung (1894-1952) was one of the most accomplished and famous Iron Palm Masters who ever lived. What is unique about this formula is about half of the formula would be considered Iron Palm ( hand conditioning) and the other half Dit Da Jow (Qi Movement). This combination formula along with his training created a very powerful Qi flow to his hands. Ku Yu Cheung credited his Qi power he developed as the reason he could break a stack of bricks with what seemed like little effort.

Ku Yu Cheung supposedly soaked his entire hand in his liniment before and after training to create a greater qi flow and followed the same ritual before breaking bricks or other Iron Palm demonstrations. 


One thing that is for sure, is the herbs he used in his liniment were consistent with the herbs used in the Shaolin Temple for trauma related conditions but were put together like a hybrid liniment for Iron Palm conditioning as well as the strengthening of his bones and tendons and the movement and healing power of Qi like Dit Da Jow. Similar to Yin and Yang, the formula is well balanced in its nature. Ku Yu Cheung was big believer in Yin and Yang in his martial arts practice thus his mastery in the external and internal arts. 

Ku Yu Cheung credited his Qi power he developed as the reason he could break a stack of bricks with what seemed like little effort. 


Ku Yu Cheung's formula encompasses the purported healing power of traditional style Dit Da Jow for treatment of bruises, bone bruises, contusions, sprains and other injuries associated with training. It also used by many martial arts practitioners for strengthening and toughening their bones, tendons and connective tissue.


What is Iron Palm Dit Da Jow?

Iron Palm refers to the legendary Shaolin Monks practicing techniques to make the hands, legs, and feet feel like iron smashing against any object they punched or kicked. In order to accomplish this, they applied Iron Palm Dit Da Jow (liniment) on the hands legs, shins or any part of the body they used to strike during training, to prevent pain, strengthen and heal the area quickly so they could resume training.


The herbs used in a Iron Palm dit da jow have been traditionally used to heal, minimize pain, prevent future bone and joint problems and strengthen bones, connective tissue, sinew and other areas where there has been repetitive contact. Iron Palm dit da jow is also believed to be very good for relieving pain in the areas mentioned above even if you do not practice Iron Palm.

    Use the Jow by pouring a small amount (a capful) into your palm and rubbing it into the affected area for 3-4 minutes massaging it into the skin. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes before washing the area or showering so it can soak into the skin. Apply 3-4 times per day.
