Tiger Claw Kung Fu is inspired by the ferocity of the tiger in attacking its prey, leaping action and agility. The techniques of the style have significant offensive and defensive applications. It is a popular style of Kung Fu in Southern China and Hong Kong.
Tiger Kung Fu practitioners harnesses the spirit and dignity of the tiger in the forms and using the tiger’s ferocity and intensity as a source of inspiration to drive their actions. The techniques of the style are ferocious, especially the focus on tearing into the opponent and going for his eyes and throat. The fire in the eyes of Tiger Kung Fu practitioners resemble that of a dangerous tiger stalking its prey’s every move.
The Tiger is one of the Five Animals commonly practiced in Kung Fu, the others being Dragon, Leopard, Snake and Crane. The emphasis of Tiger Kung Fu is on strengthening the body’s skeletal structure, namely the fingers, hands and forearms.
Every move should be done using the entire body into the strike. Power comes from turning of the waist transmitting the power from the feet to the hands and finger tips. This results in a tough but elastic power that carries a whipping power with every strike.
All actions in Tiger Kung Fu have dignity, purpose and power. They are never half-hearted or hesitant. The eyes are angry like that of the tiger. The tiger strikes with no mercy and only with the intent to kill.
Tiger Kung Fu relies mainly but not exclusively on the versatile Tiger Claw, with an emphasis on conditioning the fingers to seize as well as to main. The Tiger Claw can grip the opponent in an iron grip such that the Tiger Kung Fu fighter can pull the opponent in any direction at will. The Tiger Claw can also dig into the flesh of the opponent to draw blood or paralyze the limb to which it has a hold on. For more advanced fighters, the Tiger Claw can be used to target pressure points or cause blindness.
Besides gripping, the Tiger Claw can also be adopted to hit with great force. The back of the Tiger Claw can whip the opponent. The ridge of the finger-joints can be adapted to strike as the Leopard Paw against hard to reach targets such as the armpits.
The Tiger Kung Fu fighter relies mainly on his hand techniques to carry the fight. Kicks rarely go above the waist, and are used mainly to distract or trap the opponent.
