OK. Can't have that. All indication of a link to China must be expunged.

"Man of Iron" is great, though. I'm leaning toward it.

Karate is Japanese, by the way. (Kung-Fu is Chinese.) Also karate is taught worldwide. Man of Iron's original trainer may have been Japanese but his training could have taken place on any continent. But if we think karate is still too Asian we can switch his training to kickboxing. It really doesn't matter. Karate is kickboxing. It's just a particular style of kickboxing.

We can also drop the word "chi" very easily. We can say he's learned to channel his life force.
