Tournament

The Tournament!

Rules?

We will run a swiss-style tournament here, meaning that there will be no elimination round and everyone fights a bunch of fights (depending on number of participants probably 5-7 in total) against different opponents.

The idea is to have bouts going to a limited number of exchanges (very likely 7) and have those exchanges short and decisive. Scoring will be based on a system which gives you much more points if you score without afterblows and punishes you for getting hit – it will be kind of experimental, still in experimentation what could work.

Bring your own gear and sword!

The usual gear requirements apply (no Lacrosse/RD gloves allowed, hard knee/elbows, shin guards, padded fencing jacket, gorget, suitable fencing mask). Sword specs approximately as the DDHF (max. 140cm total length, 105cm blade, 1.3-1.8kg, needs to bend safely, no bends, no sharp edges/corners, rolled or widened tip).
