Fu Jow Pai fighting stance

Fu Jow Pai (Chinese: 虎爪派, literally "Tiger Claw System"), originally named "Hark Fu Moon" (Black Tiger Kung Fu System), has its origins in Hoy Hong Temple. The system was modeled after the demeanor and fighting strategy of an attacking tiger. The striking movements are lightning fast, agile and powerful. Techniques unique to Fu-Jow Pai are ripping, tearing, clawing and grasping applications.

In Mortal Kombat

Fu Jow Pai is used as secondary fighting style by Nitara in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, by Sindel in Mortal Kombat: Deception and Unchained, and as unarmed fighting style by Daegon in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. Another Kung Fu style based upon a tiger's movements is Hei Hu Quan.

Konquest Informations

Fu Jow Pai was originally 'Hark Fu Moon,' or Black Tiger System. It was renamed by Grand Master Wong Bil Hong to 'Fu Jow Pai of Hoy Hong Temple.' The teachings of Black Tiger Claw Kung Fu has been passed down through the ages without any written documentation, making it difficult to compile its history.


  • The fact that Taven used Gold Dragon as a fighting style while Daegon uses Fu Jow Pai, symbolizing the tiger may be an allusion to the ever-present rivalry between the tiger and the dragon in Chinese mythology.
