I never want to be a position where I have to back off my striking techniques because my knuckles hurt.

There was a hockey player from the Detroit Redwings that use to get into a lot of fights and he ended up receiving one knuckle surgery after another because his hands kept getting injured. The local new media kept talking about how much power he had because he broke another players cheekbone. I never saw that as a proof of power when guys get broken cheekbones in streetfights all the time. But the fact that he screwed up his knuckles doing it is pathetic.

K, think about it. Why would repeated abuse to your hands or extremities cause your vision to fail?

Welcome to logic. Make yourself at home.

Any relation to the other myth about using your hands and going blind?

LOL, JoelM hilarious.

As for going blind while doing the "regular" (man, JoelM now that association won`t get out of my head ) iron palm, I think it`s possible, but not likely.
I remember reading something from Jang Jwing Ming about doing pushups on the fingers. He said something about not doing them on fingertips, because it can effect (injure) the nerves there, and have a bad effect on the organs.
I think Mikhail Ryabko said that doing too many straight punches can make you go blind too.
So, I believe it`s possible...

you can go blind by doing iron fist because your hand charkras have something to do with your eyes, and instead of acting like a jerk next time you could of just asked why that is.

RyuuJitsu, I am not sure who it is you think that is acting like a jerk. There is no scientific evidence that I am aware of relating hand injury or even stress to eye problems. If that was true, there would be legions of blind martial artists and construction workers. But there aren't.

Evidence, please. Otherwise, back off with the righteous indignation a bit.

Lots of people do iron palm training, why don't lots of iron palm trainers go blind? Can anyone name one case where iron palm training has lead to blindness, or is this just an unsubstantiated myth?
