We area happy to announce that FIGHT FEST! II is coming on Saturday, June 18th 2016. This is our “light armoured” Viking Age themed combat arts tournament. After a successful tournament last year, we have decided to have a second one.
The competitive events will be s follows:
- Single Combat with Sword and Round Shield, and a back-up weapon such as a seax or hand ax.
- Melee – 5 warrior teams compete against one another in best of 5 fights.
- Last Warrior Standing (Free For All) where everyone fights everyone, and there’s no friends on the field.
Medals will be awarded for 1st,2nd, and 3rd places in each event and will be provided by New Ulster Steel Fighting. N.U.S.F. will also be providing a battle ready round shield for the first place champion in Single Combat. Also, Kult of Athena has once again graciously agreed to be a sponsor and will be contributing a Wulflund Garth Viking Sword and a GDFB Conical Nasal helm for the first place champion in the Single Combat Event.
The tournament will take place in Woodway, TX (right outside of Waco) at White Hall Park. More information will be coming soon. Registration will soon be opened online and will cost $60 per fighter. This fee covers all events.
