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
Cuts and thrusts to the head or torso are worth 2 points.
Cuts and thrusts to any extremities are a single point.
Slices or draw cuts, i.e. push and pull cuts, must travel at least half the length of the blade in order to score and must be made with obvious intent (i.e. a missed thrust is unlikely to be counted). The only valid targets for slices are hands/forearms and neck/face.
