The fights are fought in semi-contact mode “Huscarl”. In this mode, the entire body serves as a target for blows, with the exception of the feet, neck, and face. Stabbing the head and hands is also prohibited. Only “effective hits” that are achieved with the striking or piercing surface of the respective weapon are recognized as hits. Blunt hits are not taken into account. The intensity of the blows and stabs should be chosen so that the fighter hit feels the hit, without injuries being the goal of the fights. Stings should be directed towards the ground. A fighter who touches the ground loses the round. Fights with a focus on fair and safe dealings.

Weapons and hit zones

Sharp objects/weapons/pieces of armor or firearms are strictly prohibited!
