Shaolin Iron Wire

Separating Gold

The Iron Wire Set is well know for developing a lot of internal force, but it must be learnt personally from a master as it is easy to practice it wrongly. Its proper also results in mental clarity.

This set was taught by Grandmaster Wong at the Valentine Festival of Courses in Killarney, Ireland on 11th and 12th February 2012. The names of the patterns may sound odd in English. They are translated literally from Chinese.
