growing list of archived and new titles that will take you to the higher levels in all
areas of 18 Daoist Palms’ material. Not many make it in the world’s largest catalog in
their profession. We are proud to be listed under 18 Daoist Palms and Dim Mak with the
likes of the old guard pioneers like Grandmaster David German. Again, thank you for your
support and rest assured that this section of our site will continue to grow. I have made
a short clip of Panther’s old catalog in 2001 and their first full catalog of 2007 (Click Here), merely
to show the growth and to point out that we pioneered this type of learning early on with
the industry leader. From now on they will get no more, but our list of things they don’t
have will grow.

A Tribute To My Mom, Frances
Lacy...1929 to 2003 from her only son, me.
My Mom was my hero. This excerpt from my friend the late Grandmaster
Ed Parker appeared in his Volume 3 Infinite Insights Into Kenpo.
It has inspired me and the source is unknown.
The tree that never had to fight
For sun and sky and air and light,
That stood out in the open plain,
And always got its share of rain,
Never became a forest king,
But lived and died a scrubby thing
The man who never had to toil,
Who never had to win his share,
Of sun and sky and light and air,
Never became a manly man,
But lived and died as he began.
Good timber does not grow in ease:
The stronger wind, the tougher trees.
The farther sky, the greater length;
The more the storm, the more the strength;
By sun and cold, by rain and snows,
In tree or man good timber grows.
Where thickest stands the forest growth,
We find the patriarchs of both,
And they hold converse with the stars
Whose broken branches show the scars
Of many winds and much of strife;
This is the common law of life." Unknown.
I am with you always Mom. I know you will find Dad and both of
you will allow me to be your son again in the mansion worlds
where we will meet with the rest of our family through Jesus...the
only true Master.
Your loving son eternally,
James Patrick Lacy

herbalist Ahn, son of Mr. Wong signed a note of friendship to me. I have
included a photo of the herb shop. Wai and I used the same herbalist.
Mr. Wong and his sons Ahn and Willy helped me write over a dozen herb
books in .PDF and one in the Library of Congress from the early 90's.
My work with Ahn breaking down my system's herbal lists led to a few
dozen herb articles in most of the major martial art magazines from
around '85 to '95. My herbal studies started in 1965."

Iron Forearm Coconut Break Clip
of Parker Linekin and myself in 1981 in San Diego This is a
364 KB download of a clip off an instructional Grandmaster Linekin made at Grandmaster
(Jung Shee) Lacy's house. We do sell the tape this was excerpted from for $60. The Two
Man Tai Chi Chuan movie on our site is the same as the form shown in the instructional t
ape. The movie is of Parker and Jung Shee Lacy doing the form on San Diego's premiere
morning show back in the early 80's called SunUp San Diego. Lacy, Linekin, Hughes,
Hamilton, Peppers and others appeared several times on that show.
My Mentor in the Chain of Command Pecking Order:
The “Roots” of my success – Grandmaster Parker Linekin
“A Tribute from Jim Lacy.”
During a stint at Santa Rosa Jr. College while living in the
Redwoods of the California coastal town of Russian River, north
of San Francisco, I decided to study Kenpo Karate. I had an old
Volkswagen bus and made the 30 mile roundtrip 3 or 4 times a week
for almost three years. My teacher was a second generation Ed Parker
family tree black belt (of the Tracy’s lineage,) named Darrally
Escalante. Upon arriving in San Diego in the 70’s, I was blessed
to find Grandmaster Linekin teaching at the first karate school
in Ocean Beach, CA.
I was impressed that Grandmaster Linekin visited me at my house and
appreciated The Urantia Book I showed him. I knew God had put me in
contact with a kindred spirit big brother that had the personality
and impeccable lineage that I was looking for. Grandmaster Linekin
is my very best friend in the whole world of martial arts. He is the
only one who “knows” the full history and intriguing politics of “in
crowd” martial arts.
Grandmaster Linekin never wavered in his friendship, and as for martial
politics, he was always the first to offer communication to dissolve all
differences. Grandmaster Linekin is a direct link to the past, present
and future. It was not easy to get a black belt from him, and that perhaps
in part could be attributed to the way in which his teacher Grandmaster
Brian Adams taught! I met Grandmaster Adams through Grandmaster Linekin.
I consider Brian to be my second best friend in the world of martial arts.
No tribute to Grandmaster Linekin should be less than a book in size.
In truth, it was also Grandmaster Linekin who introduced me to 6th generation
family inherited Great Grandmaster Doo Wai of the Bak Fu Pai Association; which
led to my study with Wai for over a decade before moving on to my own path with
the 18 Daoist Palms System I inherited via recommendation of Grandmaster Linekin
to Grandmaster Doo Wai in 1988.
Grandmaster Linekin took the “time” to lay a foundation of impeccable roots. In
this day and age, many forget that Elvis Presley’s art was Kenpo. Grandmaster Ed
Parker was his teacher, friend and bodyguard. Elvis had the money to pick any
instructor on earth. The Kenpo logo was on his guitar.
Even Kung Fu owes a great debt to the late Grandmaster Ed Parker. Grandmaster
Parker was “teacher” to the Tracy’s who hired Grandmaster Wai. Grandmasters
Adams and Linekin are on archived footage we have learning over 40 forms from
Wai around 1973 or earlier. Before Wai’s first cover in 1975 with IKF, Grandmaster
Adams and Linekin already had certification in White Tiger directly under Wai
with lessons on video to prove it and certificates.
It would also be appropriate to mention that in my humble opinion Brian Adams’
best black belt was Parker Linekin and I am Grandmaster Linekin’s best black
belt. As for Grandmaster Doo Wai, all credit goes to Parker Linekin for sending
me to train with him. I learned well, produced 17 best selling Century DVD’s
and am currently #1 on Google Search under ironpalm. Any success I have had
came from taking care of myself, trusting God and loving those kindred spirits
mentioned that made it all work and continue to work as a team.
Clip of Grandmaster
Adams at Grandmaster Lacy's house This is Grandmaster Adams speaking a bit from
his "Introduction Tape" to his system of Integrated
Martial Arts. This tape is a must buy! This was filmed at my
house in 2001 with me filming. The whole tape is priceless but
because we are iron palm focused, I deemed this brief passage
where Brian speaks of how Bruce Lee would train his small group
in 'punching' (one of many) as especially apropos."

Generation Family Inherited Great Jung Shee Doo Wai of the Bak
Fu Pai (White Tiger System of Southern Chinese Kung Fu, gave
me my Shi Fu/Master of White Tiger Techniques in 1983. In 1985
I was given my Master of White Tiger Kung Fu and in 1988 I inherited
the Grandmaster title to Five Elder Monk Mew Hings Sup
Bat Mo Jung Pai. 18 Devils Palms is what Sup Bat Mo Jung
Pai means "18 Devils Palms System." That
said, Mew Hing shed his Buddhist roots and became Daoist after
the Five Elders escaped the burning Shil Lum Temple in the 1600s.
I am sharing this priceless document to preserve a part of history
and to clear up why Great Jung Shee Doo Wai and I decided to
use "18 Daoist Palms." When I say we are Five Elder
Monk Mew Hings 18 Daoist Palms 'Sup Bat Mo Jung
Pai,' I am honoring the wishes of my former teacher while in
a subtle way preserving the other name changed in translation
according to Great Jung Shee Doo Wai's wishes as mentioned. Even
though the Five Elders shed their Buddhist roots, they did so
to avoid the authorities and survive. That said, obviously the
roots of the Buddhist tradition as far as martial and healing
was not wasted. Remember, Buddhism was imported and not purely
Chinese as was Daoism. 18 Daoist Palms is a fast/internal system,
based on qigong and herbs. My certificates are old school.
My Kenpo teacher to fifth Dan, Jung Shee Parker Linekin of the
Doos Family White Tiger Tai Chi Chuan, Sovereign Bak Fu
Pai Grandmaster Vincent James Peppers and even Grandmaster Douglas
Wong of Contemporary White Lotus Kung Fu all share the
blue/white certificate templates you see on my site. Kindly excuse
my former teachers typos; at least he speaks two languages.
It is about authenticity, skill and intention more than
We remain forever "18
Daoist Palms" and merely share this old document before
it ages any further, and to clarify why I still use 18 Daoist
Palms Sup Bat Mo Jung Pai. When Great Jung Shee Doo Wai's
family chop manifested, I asked him to use it on a piece of paper
so as to document it. He had been using the seal/embosser stamp
with the White Tiger Southern Chinese Kung Fu Association prior,
along with another version you see on my Shattering Palm "exclusive"
certificate. I actually was given my own copy of the latter chop
as a present at one time when I was in the association, as well
as the original silkscreen for association t-shirts. In the beginning,
I brought Wai's certificate templates to my printer for use of
the association. That was the iron palm certificate templates.
Many of the first students I taught while still a member of the
association were given certificates Wai had approved for me to
give my students. These older certificates stated "White
Tiger Association Mew Hing Division." As mentioned
numerous times, we are no longer affiliated with the White Tiger
Association. We are the 18 Daoist Palms association worldwide.
Knowledge, wisdom and truth in sequential order lead to freedom.
Thus, the truth shall set you free.
I am also sharing the paper
(yellow legal ;) Wai used at my house to document his then
'newly arrived older chop.' This is merely presented for historical
insight and preservation. Click on the link to see my blue/white
template certificates that others of the old guard, (some) share.
These will include my 1983, 1985 and 1988 certificates. Great
Grandmaster Doo Wai wrote over the word Devil in my presence
and changed it to Daoist to reflect what I have just explained.
My study of 18 Daoist Palms under Grandmaster Doo Wai was articulated
in my 1989 write up in Inside Kung Fu Magazines Hall of
Fame inductees. I was 1989 'Humanitarian of the Year' Hall of
Fame inductee in Inside Kung Fu Magazine.
In closing, I have hundreds
of photos with me and my former teacher. Many are signed to me
as Grandmaster of the Mew Hing System of 18 Daoist Palms. The
awesome amount of footage of him actually teaching me has all
been preserved. I even have complete footage of him teaching
me how to make hit pills, two-person forms, productions we filmed
for the public, private personal footage, a seminar I taught
for him at White Tiger Tai Chi Chuan Grandmaster Parker Linekin's
school in Point Loma San Diego, television shows including
the Joe George show with Wai, Vince, Doug and his son Travis and
much more. I have written and video documentation of my former
teacher acknowledging me being the official fund-raiser and worldwide
iron palm representative, when I was in the association. Eighteen
Daoist Palms has a rich history. This information is being shared
for historical purposes only.
