OKINAWAN 17 Herb Iron Palm Dit Da Jow is very similar to the original 15 herb recipe used by the Shaolin Monks. This is no surprise - as Okinawan martial arts originated from China and inherited many of the Shaolin traditions.
Most practitioners of Okinawan karate know that hit medicines are/were used by most serious Okinawan karate masters. Higaonna Shinshi and Hokama shinshi (and others) have advocated this practice to their Western students fairly vocally.
Okinawan Dit Da Jow is used for training in Goju Ryu, Shito Ryu and Shotokan and is called Yi Yao Jia Zhi Wan Jin loosely translated means “medicine worth 10 thousand pieces of gold”. The name has been shortened and is referred to as “Wan Jin Yao”. In Japanese it is translated to “Kin yori yakuyō-chi”..


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 Dirt 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.
