This week at Crossing Fight School, we’ll be having a mock tournament to prepare our fighters for the Ascalon in Ohio on the weekend of the 13th.

We’ll have a few warm-ups and a fight exercise or two, but the bulk of the day will be spent in competition. If there’s any time left over, we’ll be spending it free sparring and putting the any final touches on our fighting before going out West next week.

We’ll be using the Nordic rules we’re all accustomed to, unless paired fighters request different terms. This will give our newer members some exposure to at least one common tournament format, and also to judging, which is an important (and under-developed) skill in HEMA.

See you all on Sunday.
