This is the second annual Carranza Cup, run by BSIS on behalf of the School of Historical Defence Arts (SHDA) Group.

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 in southeast Queensland (this includes the SHDA group of schools, Vanguard, Prima Spada, Collegium in Armis, and SwordFighter, among others).

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.
