    Tournament Rules

    Blade Sport Blade Fighting rules were designed with two things in mind: 1) to create a realistic scoring system that reflects probable knife strike injuries, and 2) to be able to score easily, without the need for complex hit evaluations.

    Striking


    Only stabbing or slashing using the provided BladeSport competition knives is allowed. No striking is allowed including, but not limited to punching, kicking, elbows, knees, or head butting. No punyo strikes or pummeling allowed. However, pinning and holding of arms and leg checks are allowed. Front leg to front leg sweeps going with the joint is allowed.

    Disarms

    Open hand disarms are allowed. Attempts must be made to opponent’s blade hand below the elbow only.

    Grappling


    No grappling will be permitted and there are no intentional throws allowed. If your opponent falls, you can continue to slash and stab at the opponent for 3 seconds after such time the center referee will stand both competitors back up and continue the match.


    Scoring

    Scoring is a point system, where 5 points is a win.

    Throat/neck - 4 points for a slash or stab.
    Head - 2 points for a slash or stab.
    Chest and Back (rib cage area) - 1 point for a slash, 2 points for a stab.
    Abdomen and Groin (between rib cage and legs) - 2 points for a slash or stab.
    Anywhere else (arms, legs) - 1 point for a slash or stab.

    Disarm – 1 point + points for the subsequent strike.


    Extra Considerations

    2 slashes or stabs to the same hand/arm will make that arm unusable. The knife can be transferred to the “good” arm but the injured arm can no longer be used to carry the knife.


    2 slashes or stabs to the same leg will make that leg unusable. You must either hop on your "good" leg, or put your "bad" leg's knee on the ground.


    If you lose your knife (disarm) there is no point deduction. However, the opponent has 3 seconds to score a point before the center referee calls break.

    In Double Blade divisions, the competitor’s highest scoring points in a pass will be counted.

    WBCS – Weapons Bout Contact Sparring
    Stick Fighting Tournament Rules

    The rules for stick fighting were developed with the focus on weapon sparring with the stick. The intention is to develop stick sparring techniques which are based on the fundamentals of stick striking, blocking, countering, and footwork.
    Major emphasis is on striking the opponent without being hit.


    Striking


    All stick strikes and thrusts are allowed. No striking is allowed including, but not limited to punching, kicking, elbows, knees, or head butting. However, pinning and holding of arms and leg checks are allowed.

    Split second reset after engagements either by the competitors or with the help of the center referee.

    Clashes between the competitors will be broken up by the center referee. Counter strikes and follow up strikes are allowed as long as they are clean and the competitor is able to avoid a strike from the opponent.

    The emphasis is on defense and the ability to strike without getting hit. Parrying is allowed.

    No blocking weapon strikes with the live hand.



    Disarms

    Disarms are allowed and will only be taken into consideration if it is a clean disarm and you avoid being hit in the process. Attempts must be made to opponent’s weapon hand below the elbow only.

    Grappling


    No grappling will be permitted and there are no intentional throws allowed. If your opponent falls, the center referee will stand both competitors back up and continue the match.


    Scoring

    Scoring is based on a 10 point must system, where the winning competitor is awarded 10 points and the defeated competitor receives 9 points or less.

    Each match consists of two 90 second rounds. Each round is continuous and will be scored by the judges at the conclusion of each round. The center referee will only break up clashes. In the event of a tie, a 60 second tie-breaking round will follow.

    Warnings and Penalties



    Warnings and penalties are issued by the center referee at their discretion for any infraction to the rules. Penalty point will occur on the 2nd warning issued to the competitor.

    Mixed Weapons Sparring Tournament Rules

    Mixed Weapon Sparring is based on the idea of sparring with single edge weapons such as swords or machetes. Any valid hit with the edge or tip is assumed to inflict damage on the person getting hit. The idea is to hit but not get hit. Simultaneous hits (double hits) will result in a penalty for both people.

    There will be three weapon combinations: single sword, double sword, sword & shield. At the start of each round, each competitor will choose their weapon combination for that round. Neither person will know the other person's choice until the round begins. A weapon combination cannot be repeated for consecutive rounds.

    Padded swords will be used.

    Striking

    Only stabbing or slashing using the provided competition swords is allowed. No striking is allowed including, but not limited to punching, kicking, elbows, knees, or head butting. No punyo strikes or pummeling allowed. Striking with the back edge will not count. Striking with the shield is not allowed.

    Disarms

    A disarm is defined as losing or dropping either a sword or shield. If a person is disarmed, a point will be awarded to the other person. Being disarmed 2 times during the match will result in an automatic loss.

    A competitor using double sword who loses a weapon has to continue the round with only one weapon.


    Scoring

    Scoring is a point system, where 3 points is a win. If time runs out in the round, who ever has the higher score wins. A round can end with a tie, 1 winner & 1 loser, or 2 losers by mutual elimination.

    Any valid slash with the edge or thrust with the tip will be awarded one point. Target is the whole body. The groin & throat can be attacked with slashes but thrusting to those two areas is not allowed.


    A disarm will result in a point being awarded to the person who was not disarmed. Being disarmed twice will result in an automatic loss.


    A double hit will not be scored but will result in a penalty for both competitors. Two such penalties in the same round will result in a loss for both people by mutual elimination.

    Warnings and Penalties


    Warnings and penalties are issued by the judges at their discretion for any infraction to the rules. Penalty point will occur on the 2nd warning issued to the competitor. A point is awarded to the opponent of a competitor receiving a penalty.

    Types of Warnings:

    § Hitting with the shield
    2 Hitting after the referee calls for a break
    3 Moving or running out of the ring
