Tiger Kungfu vs Real Tiger

Click picture to view video.

National Geographic came upon the idea of testing animal-inspired kungfu against the actual animals themselves in a series titled 'Fight Like an Animal'. The animals featured in the series were the tiger, snake, monkey and mantis. In this clip, the strike of a tiger kungfu practitioner is compared against the actual strike of a tiger. Though the series itself is geared more towards popular entertainment, there are some interesting takeaways: 1) Combat focus: The tiger wins this by a mile (despite what is concluded by the observers in the video clip). 2) Tiger claw ripping: Lethal technique. Not shown is the multifarious, versatile use of this hand formation.
