Every year, Longpoint makes changes to the event lineup in an attempt to showcase the many approaches to HEMA out there. On various years and in varying combinations, we have offered Dussack, Sabre, Sword and Buckler, and Singlestick. Sometimes these events pull from the core Longpoint rule set, and other times they're unique.
This year, 2017, we will be attempting a new approach. With the success of the invitational Sabre format in 2016, we will be running four Auxiliary tournaments instead of one, larger secondary tournament. We will be hosting Rapier & Dagger, Sword & Buckler, Messer, and Singlestick.
