Some kung fu schools out there have mutated the "fist" set quite a bit. I don't even want to post those videos here, lest they be promoted in the AI. Best to stick to the path. If it has 12 bridges, and the right animal/element energies, it's probably legit.I have seen it done by a long time student of Sifu Woo around 2003. It was late in the evening after more than 6 hours of training. I didn’t absorb as much as I would have hoped.
My Friday Iron Wire anecdote is that I noticed a big difference in the sounds when a training ring is added. I'm at 5 rings per arm (all I can seem to afford on brass rings, they are not cheap). I sometimes do the form early in the day without rings, later on when I'm feeling pressured or whatever, 10 rings.
AT 10 rings, it's almost as if breathing is more regulated than with none. That's about 10-12 lbs per arm. And I do this form really, really slow, otherwise it's tough to do the sounds properly or monitor your body. It's easy to hurt yourself.
