Game description

Varlets and future knights had to practice their stick fighting techniques. In order to avoid any danger of injury, the sticks (sweeping brush handle) must be padded with some foam (heating pipe insulation). Gloves would be an advantage. Clear game rules must be agreed before a fight. Strikes in the facial area are not allowed, as well as the "lunging, pulling and striking" of the opponents stick. Strikes should really only be performed through light taps. A referee decides and calls a halt to things, if one of the players cannot control himself.


A referee judges each strike.
