All tournaments will be run at a restricted intensity. This includes restrictions on grappling, strength of blows and unsporting behaviour, as outlined in the rules.
Participants fencing in a tournament will be scheduled to judge within that tournament when not fencing and will be required to attend a safety briefing the morning of the tournament.
Please ensure that you are familiar with all rules prior to attending the event.
