Iron Palm and Iron Shirt Qigong

Shaolin Iron Palm and Iron Shirt Training are only taught to advanced students who have trained for at least 2 years in Qigong and Kung Fu. The discipline and time commitment required is significant ...

Iron Shirt Qi Gong develops a very, very strong body making it impervious to physical attacks. Iron Shirt strengthens the muscles, tendons, bones, nerves, cells and washes bone marrow. As we get older, our bodies, muscles and tendons degenerate and we become frail and have less energy. Qi Gong training reverses this Yin process and turns the body Yang helping us to live for a long time and be free from sickness and disease.

Before a practitioner is ready for Iron Shirt training or Iron Palm, he must have had at least 2 years of Kung Fu or  Qi Gong practice to strengthen and clean his or her body. Iron Shirt Qi Gong adopts concentrated Chi or energy (essence) into the body and directs it to specific organs or certain parts of the body to strengthen them. Kung Fu training will develop a confident psychology and strong body.

Therefore, when an individual uses this knowledge in conjunction with Iron Shirt and Iron Palm , he or she will have control over his manner and emotions to help people. Qi Gong practice will teach the person to relax the body muscles and tendons, clean the body of toxins, clear blockages and strengthen the organs and psychology.


In doing so, one also strengthens his Chi power, in his Dan Tien. In the Shaolin Jee Shin Wing Chun Kung Fu system, we incorporate Elementary Iron Shirt postures to prepare one's body for the more demanding work, later on. 

As a balance to our hard training (Yang), we also incorporate Yin Qi Gong and breathing exercises to keep the body happy and free from tension and stress. These practices maintain a proper balance of Yin and Yang so the body does not heat up (excessive Yang), after training. 

Iron Shirt Qigong and Iron Palm is only taught by Sifu Garry and Sifu Linda Baniecki.
