    Hand conditioning
    By ElfTengu - 07-23-2011 04:39 PM


    I am looking for any hints on hand conditioning that work in the short term to toughen up palms and finger pads so that rattan doesn't keep taking the skin off.

    I don't have the softest hands, being a factory worker, keen gardener and martial artist in another style for 25 years, but whilst Japanese oak weapons have never caused me any problem, I am having trouble with rattan.

    I know that long term practice is the main solution, but any tips other than the usual rubbing in of surgical spirit to avoid looking like a thrash metal drummer would be gratefully received, thanks.
