The Organizing Committee is delighted to present the official rule-set of the Invitational Tournament which will take place during the 2nd European Games in Minsk, on the 22nd and 23rd of June 2019. The rule-set is a result of discussions, comparisons, adjustments and fine tuning conducted by the committee and the regional delegates. Everyone involved in the making of the rule-set is a seasoned HEMA practitioner with several years of experience in fencing and teaching. It is based on regulations of various existing high standard HEMA tournaments, and the insights and observations of everyone involved contributed towards one goal: the presentation of clear, realistic and artful historical fencing. We are confident that fencers, referees and judges will be able to deliver high quality sportsmanship and spectacle to the audience present and to the world.
