    I had a question about the cover article.

    On page page 42, the article about Yongyao states his practices Iron Palm and Golden Finger. It says the ability to escape any lock you attempt.

    Can you elaborate on that for us? Is it saying that he can escape any finger holds?

    It's finger holds to his pointer finger

    It's sort of a Shaolin trick. Shi Sugang did a similar stunt (see my article An Iron Head Points to the Moon: Shaolin Wushuguan's Senior Master, Monk Shi Sugang -
    Shaolin Special 2005). Sort of reminds me of the ol' pull my finger trick.

    I tried Yongyao's skill at his insistence. He restricts the holds you can apply somewhat, and kept repositioning my hands to his advantage. I've studied a little qinna so I was trying to set up some more advantageous starting positions, but he was wise to what I was doing and just wouldn't let me start from there. So in truth, it's not any lock. Nevertheless, he is really slippery from most locks.

    Sorry we had a little delay. Still working out the bugs with the Chinese characters. We've got that worked out now.

    Our cover story is now live

    Read Escaping Buddha's Grasp by Gene Ching (with Gigi Oh). Pick this issue up on the newsstands - it'll be there until Oct 2011.
