The Order of the Tygers Combatant (OTC) is an Order of High Merit for rattan combat, awarded to those who have distinguished themselves by prowess at armored combat, whether by attaining a standard of excellence such as makes them noteworthy in the eyes of the Kingdom, or by attempting more than one weapons form and, while not attaining mastery in any one, surpassing competence in several.
