Hi,

I recently came across a book on Iron Shirt Chi Kung. The premise of the book looks interesting, but I am not sure what makes this "style" different than the others. Does anyone else have experience with Iron Shirt?

You can find information on iron shirt type techniques in a book called,Kung Fu, History,Philosophy and Technique.I hope this helps.

regards Iron Shirt, never ever attempt to learn it from a book. there are a few places where you can learn it rather openly,
such as Juko Kai schools, and also Wing Lams
Hung Gar schools.

to try and attempt self study will only invite serious long term injury or death.

Better to spend your time learning how not to get hit.

Hello pmac798,
Never close your eyes to learning,no matter what it is that you are learning from,Books,video's and instuctors are all good sources of information.I've heard it said alot of times.You shouldn't learn or try to learn from a book,you have to find an instructor.Well, how did the originator of the style learn.He sure didn't have an instructor if he was the very first one to come up with the art.

A fellow by the name of Professor Thomas Keen has produced a book and video combo of Iron Vest Qigong, it is inexpensive and is of very good quality. The material is some of the best that I have seen. Broken down into very easy to follow sections and even has a log to chart your progress. Includes meditations, too. Iron Vest is not just for the making a body resilient to blows but helps cure and strengthen the body by promoting chi circulation throughout the entire body. The postures can help a bad back or neck, reduce high blood pressure, help cure a host of maladies like arthritis symptoms, etc and is a great substitute for weight training because it develops you internally, not externally, so you have real strength, especially if you combine the sets with the Iron Vest herbal formulation. Makes you strong like a bull. Good stuff [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

Brewer, perhaps the originator learned from watching inexperienced people get hurt, then saying "Okay, that was the WRONG way."

Iron shirt/vest/Golden Bell is a very dangerous qigong and should not be trained without supervision.
