Shaolin Iron Tiger Kung Fu is a martial arts system derived from Shaolin Tiger Kung Fu and Muay Thai that is intended to be practical and easy to learn system of self-defense. Iron Tiger focuses primarily on fast techniques that revolve around four attack areas - eyes, throat, groin, and knees. Since Iron Tiger is geared towards self-defense, most techniques are designed to be simple and effective and therefore lacks the flashy appeal that attracts many people to other martial art systems.
Richard Greenlee serves as the system's leader and chief martial arts expert. Greenlee has studied various martial art systems and has obtained the rank of Master 6th degree in Okinawa-Shorin-Ryu Karate. He currently owns and operates a Kung Fu school in Circleville, Ohio.
