WHAT IS SNOWTIGER?
SnowTiger Combat Systems [STCS]
is an eclectic combat art, derived from ancient martial disciplines originated and honed from Egypt to China.
Considered by many martial enthusiasts as the "holy grail" of the martial arts, it remains enshrouded in much mystery and secrecy. The art first became known to practitioners in the United Stated by Dr. Robert Hill who passed suddenly in 1982.
It must be noted that SnowTiger was an assassin's art derived from military science concepts, taught in Shaolin, only to the military ranks in China. It was an art developed out of war and perfected in battle in order to defend the Monarch by the Shaolin monastery, based on the need to have their assassins kill within a 3 second window, without the need for weapons.
Simply put - SnowTiger was developed as a Military Science arising out of a need for excellence & instant effectiveness in combat, on the battlefield or within the halls of a castle or monastery, where the result ended in death within 3 seconds, without use of weapons. It is oriented toward the "3-second kill" or "quick kill" approach. Historically it was broken down into animal specialties, the distinct animal systems were developed to address the individual’s physiological & psychological make up with each student mastering the animal system that best suited their natural tendencies and made it easier to learn based on instinctive proclivities.
