Tid Sin Kuen, Almost HERE!

Tid Sin Kuen (Iron Wire Fist) Lam Chun FaiTid Sin Kuen (Iron Wire Fist) is one of the hallmark ‘internal’ forms of the Hung Gar system, and we were excited when we first started representing Sifu Lam Chun Fai’s beautiful text on our site a few years back. Lam Sifu, son of Lam Cho, has produced three fine books in his lineage, Hung Kuen Fundamentals and Kung Kuen Training (all available on Plum).

The Tid Sin Kuen book has been out of print for at least a year but, happily, has found a new publisher in Plum, and will return to our shelves in about 2-3 weeks. This version, unchanged in content, will have the added advantage of a downloadable video demonstrating the sounds made when practicing Iron Wire, rather than the inserted DVD, allowing easy playback no matter where you are in the world.

Of course we will announce the arrival of the book on Kaimen, but if you would like to be notified in addition, just click here.

Of course, this is just the start of a great season of new additions at Plum; we’ve got a new batch of colorful books from Paul Koh (plus an exceptional interview); some unseen gems from China (including texts on Shaolin, White Crane, and Xin Yi Liu He); and, of course, our newest Plum project on Bagua Zhang. It’s going to be a good summer at Plum.
