Competition Format

This is full contact lightsaber dueling and has requirements for padding and protection. That list will be sent to you along with a code of conduct sheet shortly after signing up.

The Iowa Saber League scoring system will be used. Hands and feet do not count as points (unless hand is not on the hilt when hit). Arms and legs being 1 point with torso and head is 2 points. 3 minute round to 10 points.

Good sportsmanship is important and will be expected from all competitors.

All sabers will be inspected and must be safe to compete.
