RULES

Rules will be available at https://www.facebook.com/CSGHEMA/ and http://starpaw.com/hema/.

Basic safety requirement:

Fencing mask for all weapons.  Protective jacket for all events.   Women will wear a chest protector for all events.  Singlestick can use a normal fencing glove.  Other weapons will require sturdier hand protection.   Gorgets required.  Men must wear a protective cup.  Joints must be protected. 

Equipment will be inspected at event.   This means someone may hit you with a stick to check that all safety gear is in place.  If you do not have appropriate equipment, and none is available to borrow, you will not be able to participate.

Women’s Longsword:  If there are not enough women for their own event, they can fence the open event for pools and medal separately. 

Judging:  Fencers may be required 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.
