Energy Sword is a stunt or combat grade version of a popular weapon as seen in a movie featuring a farm boy from a desert planet rescuing a princess with the aid of a smuggler and his really hairy friend.  The term most often used is a copyrighted term.  This same weapon has been featured in tournaments held by The Sabre Legion, although this is not an official TSL tournament.

Further note:  Standard store versions of this weapon will not be permitted.  Only the higher end, stunt quality weapons are allowed for safety reasons.  A few standard weapons will be available for use.

Rules will be available at https://www.facebook.com/Cornhusker-State-Games-Energy-Sword and http://starpaw.com/energy-sword/.

Basic safety requirement:

Fencing mask, protective jacket, gorget, and joint protection is required for all events.  Men will have a cup. Women will have a chest protector.  Specific gear requirements are listed in the rules.  If gear requirements listed in the rules are not met, and the participant cannot borrow the needed gear, they will not be permitted to participate..

Judging:  Fencers are expected to help judge events that they are not currently fighting in.

Direct Eliminations:  The top eight fencers out of pools will fence in direct eliminations.

Costumes/Garb:  This particular weapon draws a lot of interest from those who wish to dress the part, as it were.  Appropriate outfits are permitted with the following caveats:

1:  Safety first.  All protective gear must remain.  If there is any question as to whether part of an outfit is unsafe, the tournament director will have final say.

2:  If an outfit features flowing parts, such as sleeves, the participant must recognize that the flowing part might be struck and registered to the judges as if it was a good blow.

3:  No capes.  Or, at least, no capes during actual fighting.
