Fighting and Chivalry!




1-2PM LUNCH (Bring something to contribute)


Instead of a regular practice, we're doing a season kick-off tournament! Parking can be difficult at Ala Moana, so plan to come early. Parking across the street from the Ward Cinema is possible, but is a little walk. I'll arrive @7:45am to secure a parking place and to start the setup--but I plan to do a quick beach-swim first ;-)

The tournament will be done in four rounds, with special encounters between the rounds.

Opening melee, to "three good strikes", sword in two hands

1. Round 1 - Sword in Two Hands, challenge pass

between round melee, sword in two hands, to "first blood"

2. Round 2 - Challenge pass Breadth Weapon (other than sword in two hands)

between round melee, daggers, "three good strikes"

3. Round 3 - Random weapon - Random Opponent (to five blows received)

between round melee, sword in one hand, "three good strikes"

4. Round 4 - Random opponent - Sword in Two Hands

Champion's Pass - Semi-finals (best of 3) - pairs nominated by each

Champion's Bouts (Best of 5)  - by acclaim

While not required, a nice tradition is to being one or more small gifts that you can present to those you think do well in the tournament. This can be done at the end of a bout, or at the end of the tournament.

    Thank you everyone for a GREAT day! It was excellent to meet Katy2, Anna, Sam, and Katy's SO. See the event report up on the FaceBook page, and Colin posted a bunch of pics and video linked to the EVENT (go to the SSG Honolulu FB page on the EVENTS tab). We had LOTS of extra food--no surprise there, given how generous everyone is and was. James, what was the name of that chicken place you went to? It was *amazing*. One of many amazing things for the day!

      Great fun and great showing by everyone. The chicken was from Jolly Bee Chicken at Ala Moana food court. I think they also have a place in Waipahu.
