SELECTION FROM IRON WIRE SET
Selection from the Iron Wire Set
The “Iron Wire Set” or “Tit Seen Khuen” is regarded as a treasure in Hoong Ka (Hung Gar) Kungfu, and is used for internal force training. It was invented by the great Shaolin master, Tit Kiew Sam, who was famous for his powerful forearms, and generously made known to the public by another great master, Lam Sai Weng.
In his young days Sifu Wong practiced this set daily for some time, and developed tremendous internal force. However, this set can easily be wrongly practiced as an isometric exercise instead of as an internal force exercise. Here, Sifu Wong demonstrates a typical section from the “Iron Wire Set”.
You can find a description of the “twelve bridges” of the “Iron Wire Set” at Answer 5 of the May 2007 Part 2 of the Question-Answer Series.
