Introducing the 鐵線拳 Shaolin Iron Wire Set - "Thit Seen Khuen"

ONLINE COURSE - Taught by Tim Franklin


"Thit Seen Khuen" (Iron Wire Set) is an advanced kungfu set to train internal force, not just for combat efficiency but also for health, vitality and durability. It makes the body tough (but not massive or muscular), and the mind sharp and clear.


The Iron Wire Set is probably the most powerful internal force training method in all kungfu, but it is easy to train it wrongly. It is therefore important to learn it correctly from a competent teacher.


I can testify, from my own experience, that the internal force generated from practicing the Iron Wire has greatly contributed to my internal force, vitality and happy demeanour.

How do you know that you are training the Iron Wire Set correctly?

An excellent way is to check whether you obtain the effects that correct training will bring.

The hallmarks of Iron Wire training are tremendous internal force and mental clarity.

It normally takes a several months or years of correct training before a student can experience these effects.

However, with the teachings and methodology passed on from Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit, and the students prior foundation training in Qigong, the benefits of Iron Wire can be experienced within the timeframe of the 12 training sessions, available online, live and recorded.


Wahnam Version of the Iron Wire Set

In this course we will be practicing the Wahnam version of the Iron Wire Set, taught by Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit, inspired by the orthodox version in Wong Fei Hoong’s lineage. Thit Kiew Sam taught this set to Lam Fook Seng, who in turn taught it to Wong Fei Hoong, who then taught it to Lam Sai Weng.

There are three noticeable differences in the Wahnam Iron Wire Set:

  • The Shaolin greeting
  • The addition of Big Boss Lifts Bronze Vessel
  • The addition of Circulating Soft Bridge


The greeting in the Shaolin Wahnam version is taken from the signature greeting of Grandmaster Ho Fatt Nam’s school.

“Big Boss Lifts Bronze Vessel” is taken from the Eighteen-Lohan Art.

“Circulating Soft Bridge” is taken from the Dragon Strength Set of Uncle Righteousness’ school.

"Iron Wire Set" is a set of Kungfu/Chi Kung (qigong) exercises, and not a set of isometric exercises. But it is often performed incorrectly as a set of isometrics.

  • In chi kung, a practitioner is relaxed, and the aim is to train energy and mind.
  • In isometric exercise, a practitioner progressively tenses his muscles, and the aim is to build muscles and muscular strength.


To the uninitiated, isometric exercise looks similar to chi kung exercise.

When an "Iron Wire Set" practitioner brings his arms together or extends his hands outward, irrespective of whether he performs it as isometric exercise or as chi kung, his arms or hands may vibrate. The vibrations are different, and an initiated observer can readily tell one from another.

But uninitiated observers usually can't see the difference, which is why many people practice "Iron Wire Set" wrongly.


The vibrations of a genuine practitioner are due to the tremendous internal force generated from his practice. The vibrations of a mistaken practitioner are due to the excessive tensing of his muscles.

A tell-tale sign is that the genuine practitioner is relaxed whereas the mistaken practitioner is stressful.

Other signs, which may not be so readily noticeable, are that the genuine practitioner feels fresh and agile, energized yet peaceful, whereas the mistaken practitioner feels exhausted and blocked, emptied and irritable.

In this course we will be practicing both the flow and force method.

Powerful Arms

Hoong Ka Kungfu is famous for its "bridges", or powerful forearms. The master best known for his powerful bridges was Thit Kiew Sam. It was recorded that he could let six able-bodied adults hang on each arm, yet walked for over a hundred steps.

How did Thit Kiew Sam train to have such powerful arms? It was not through lifting weights and other mechanical means, but through practicing "Thit Seen Khuen", or the "Iron Wire Set".


You will not be required to carry adults on your arms (unless you want to) but you will benefit from:

  • Being able to enjoy a qi flow
  • Relaxing your mind and body
  • Working with the absence of unnecessary tension

All of these will be covered on the course.
