Masters of the Duel

We invite all to participate in the Second Masters of the Duel Tournament. 
Masters of the Duel is an annual tournament designed to promote the learning and teaching of Cut and Thrust fighting. 
This is a double elimination tourney to put into practice all that has been learned over the course of the event. The winner will receive a prize as well as the right to carry the traveling trophy – The Masters of the Duel sword – for a year. 

The traveling trophy will need to be returned at the next event featuring a Masters of the Duel Tournament.
