The victor shall receive the tournament prize and choose also one ransom from among those assembled. The remaining combatants will choose each one ransom in the order of victories, ties decided by casting lots.

Class: Stability, Strength, and Flexibility - Yoga for Fighters (10 AM)
Instructor: Maestra Mirabai Sitt Al-Sirr
Many fighters struggle with soreness and injuries, especially to knees, ankles, elbows, and shoulders. Joint stability, core strength, and overall flexibility are the keys to avoiding injuries and being able to fight without next-day consequences. This class focuses on stretches and basic routines to keep yourself in the fight. Appropriate for all fitness levels. Please wear clothes that you can easily stretch in, and feel free to bring a yoga mat or towel. Some motions will require being on the floor.
Tournament: Atlantian Speed (11 AM)
This is a rapid-fire, single pass, double elimination tournament. Bring your best style. Doubles are refought once; after that, they count as a loss by both participants. The finalists will fight best two out of three for victory and a prize to be given at court that evening.
Youth Rapier Tournament: Dragons and Puppies (1 PM)
Authorized youth combatants must fight against the ferocious dragon of the Midrealm to rescue poor, helpless puppies from his treacherous claws! Every participant in this tournament wins a prize; the tournament will be fought from 1:00 to 1:30, or until the dragon is exhausted. Youth authorizations will begin at 12:00. YAF and YARMS are welcome to volunteer as the “dragon”.
Tournament: Valhalla Circle-of-Death (3 PM)
This legendary every-fencer- for-themselves melee tournament returns for a second year. Fencers ring the outside of the list; bring your best style. Upon “lay on”, they may fight anyone not directly adjacent to them. Fencers who die leave the list, but should remain nearby… when the fencer who killed them is killed, they may return to the list and continue to compete. Double kills are both “dead”. Forming alliances is permitted; treacherously betraying alliances is also permitted. Last fighter standing wins. *If* there is a winner – and it’s not a sure thing – they will receive a prize at court.
