Features of the event will include:

  • No time-based afterblow. To score a clean hit, you need to withdraw from the exchange.
  • Everyone moves on to eliminations! Had a shit pool? That's ok - you still get another chance.
  • A full 3 minutes of potential fencing for each match. No more clock running while the judges do complex math.
  • No need to volunteer! The event aims to let you do what you came to do - have a great time, not work.
  • An easy train ride from the airport to downtown, where the venue is! No need to rent cars or complex pick up situations. A CHEAP train ticket right from the airport will take care of you.
  • Skills Course. Think of a tactical shooting course. Now picture that with a sword. Now think about how much fun that is.  Multiple it by 12.
