Armored Combat

Proposed Rattan fighting for Chieftains in 2020 using the “standard” four field lay-out.

  • Mass Weapon & Round Shield – the traditional Baron Cormac Memorial Tournament with 24” maximum round shield
  • Pole Arm Tourney
  • Great Sword Tourney
  • Two One Handed Weapons – This the best way for rattan fighters to simulate the first middle ages Florentine style.
  • The finals will be round-robin using only those weapons used during the day. The combatants will not be limited to the weapon system the won but must use it once.

All tournaments will be single elimination.

Novice Tournament – standard qualification rules – Unranked and not have won a tournament. (This may be double elimination depending on the size of the list)
