2021 Historical Tournament Rules

2021 Five Rings Fencing Tournament Rules.

Because of some venue problems, we must be done fencing on Sunday, September 26th, by 2:00pm. Therefore, we’ll run long sword on Sunday, all the other events on Saturday, September 25th. Check-in times are 9:00 both days. Although, if you’re doing Rapier on Saturday, I expect you can actually check in as late as 11:00 on Saturday.

Before each event starts, we’ll show the fencing boundaries for each “strip” (likely rectangular area, but nevertheless, there’ll be plenty of room to fence in the round. Unlike previous years, we’ll start awarding touches against people forced off strip.
