The following rules represent the standard ruleset for Tournaments being held by Royal Arts fencing academy. This includes: Ascalon, Blue Box, Looking Sharpe, and Hemmageddon
A fencer in the process of completing an action within one tempo when a halt is called for is allowed to complete their action. For example, one fencer attacks, “halt” is called but the other fencer was already in the midst of riposting. This is permitted. Likewise, if a fencer finished his attack as a fencer goes out of bounds, he is still permitted to score in that single tempo.
