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
Bouts will run for one minute and thirty seconds or until one fighter scores one full point. This means that a bout could be won in a single exchange. Because of the potential brevity of the exchanges, there will be two rounds of pools before direct elimination (DE).
