This is the fourth annual Carranza Cup, run by the Brisbane School of Iberian Swordsmanship

The primary purpose of this event is to provide an opportunity for relatively inexperienced fencers to gain tournament experience. It will also provide an opportunity for fencers from participating schools to encounter different fencing styles and learn to adapt to them.

Entry is open to current members of historical fencing schools who are insured as such. Note that our participants are limited to 20 due to social distancing requirements. If more than 20 people register, priority will be given to entrants who have not yet been in a tournament. 

The Carranza Cup Outline document gives a full description of the event, including tournament rules, weapons and gear guidelines, and scoring. We expect all participants to be familiar with the content of the outline.  There have been some clarifications to personal protective equipment requirements, but otherwise no changes to rules of the tournament. There have been some administrative changes, particularly in relation to COVID.
