In short there will ne a two phase challenge . First participants will compete with in their chosen weapon (rapier or smallsword , but not both) then the best 4 of each weapon will meet to fight to the last to determine who is the greatest fighter and which is the greater weapon.
The bouting rule set will be essentially the same as for the Association for Historical Fencing Smallsword v. Rapier tournaments. No offhand or secondary weapons will be used .
May the best weapon win!
Hope to see you all there.
