This recipe originated centuries ago. With the combat/fighting monks of the Buddhist Shaolin Temple where this traditional recipe was manufactured from 36 different herbs. Dit Da Jow literally means "fall hit wine". Chinese rice wine was added to herbs in a clay vase. Then, this vase was sealed and buried in the ground for months or even years. It was assumed that the longer the spices were soaked in the alcohol, the more powerful the Dit Da Jow would become. It is a kind of body elixir for kung fu practitioners, used to heal external damage such as bruises or sore muscles. There are indeed several types of Dit Da Jow recipes, most of which are considered a "secret formula" that were passed both orally and in writing within the traditional Chinese martial art from master to disciple. The Dit Da Jow liquid is very popular among kung fu practitioners. In China, it is very common that each master mixes his own formulas. The different aromatic herbs he uses, stimulate blood circulation, reduce swelling and pain and speed up the healing process in case of fractures and inflammation. In the meantime, it is also known as a liquid pain reliever that turns out to be useful in reducing pain associated with arthritis and rheumatism. The Dit Da Jow can be used to cool off or to warm up, depending on the formula and application. It can only be used externally. Dit Da Jow is also used by kung fu practitioners as support for their training in iron palm, iron body and iron bridge.
Our Dit Da Jow (fall hit wine) is one of the most beloved and wanted formula in Europe. Many so called masters used to visit our Si Kong (grandmaster) in the past and even now still trying to get their hands on his formula and knowledge that he received from his Sifu (master), so they could claim it as theirs and deceive students mentally and financially in their own so-called kung fu school. Spreading false story’s like it was given to them by their own master(s). Off course my Sifu never let him get tricked by these kind of people, giving them only a finger (not more than 15 %) In the Chinese community we call these kind of people, pien chi - 骗子. So we can proudly say that after decades our formula is still very save with us. This typical herb mixture was specifically designed by our kung fu ancestors only for practitioners of our extraordinary fighting style to speed up recuperation after training. Relieving pain and aiding the healing of bruises, tendon strains, sprains as well as arthritis and osteoporosis. This secret formula is given to Yip Wai-Lam Sifu as the next official heir, protector and keeper of our authentic Chinese kung fu style that we practice.
