Martial Arts Harrisburg PA

Sifu Michael Turrentine



Michael Turrentine began training in Kung Fu when he was in his teens. He studied the art of Choy Lay Fut under Sifu John Wai at the John Wai Kung Fu Academy in Plantation, Florida. Under Sifu Wai, Michael received the highest quality training and work ethic. Michael continues to train and learn with Sifu Wai to this day. Michael has over 22 years of experience in training and teaching. Michael now passes that knowledge onto every one of his students. 


Michael began training in the late 1990s and has been training every day since. He never stops learning and so he has endless kung fu knowledge that he wants to share with his students. Michael is a Certified Black Belt in several styles of Martial Arts including a certification with the International Wushu Sanshou Dao Association and is also a Certified Boxing Instructor with the International Boxing Association.


His goal for every class is to not only teach his students exemplary kung fu but to provide them with the discipline to be an excellent learner, the strength to overcome any obstacle, and the courage to overcome any fear. Teaching his Kung Fu in Harrisburg, PA, he longs to improve the lives of all in his community. 


With Michael's high energy classes every student can achieve a high fitness level while having fun in the process. Michael takes part in teaching every class at Tiger's Kung Fu Academy. 

Michael and his wife, Angel, own and operate Tiger's Kung Fu Academy. Michael instructs in all classes at Tiger's Kung Fu Academy.


Sijae Angel Turrentine

Angel has been training and teaching for over 12 years in many different aspects of fitness. Angel represents the hardest work ethic in the martial arts world and has quickly become an inspiration to all of our kung fu and kickboxing students through her unmatched dedication, her willingness to learn and grow her skills. That work ethic has been translated seamlessly into becoming an exemplary instructor for all of our students to learn from. 


Angel puts everything she has into every punch, every kick and into teaching every class and helping every student become better. Angel empowers all students in our classes and especially our young Kung Fu girls and our kickboxing women. Angel is a Certified Boxing Instructor with the International Boxing Association.

Junior Assistant Viola Tiger

Lil' Tigers & Tiger Cubs

Viola began her Kung Fu journey at the age of 3 under the tutelage of Sifu Michael. She has been an extremely hard-working and dedicated student, who is a great example of how Martial Arts students should train in their everyday life.


When other kids see how hard she trains, they all in turn put all their effort into training just as hard. At such a young age, she proves that age is not what makes a great Martial Artist, its giving your all everyday and every class! Viola is one of very few students in the Martial Arts world who has worked hard enough and has achieved the title of Black Belt.


Viola is a Junior Assistant Instructor in our Lil' Tigers class & Tiger Cubs classes. When Viola is not assisting, she is training hard in our Traditional Kung Fu class!

Junior Assistant Caleb Walters

Lil' Tigers

Caleb began his Kung Fu journey with Tiger's Kung Fu in early 2016 and has been one of our hardest working students ever since. Every class, Caleb brings a smile and enthusiasm that rubs off on everyone and he has never once complained during his training. Caleb is the perfect example of what it takes to succeed in Kung Fu and shares his hard work ethic with all our Lil' Tigers.

Caleb is a Junior Assistant in our Lil' Tigers class.
