The Tiger's Claws (2 Person Spear Tournament)

The tiger is a fearsome and ferocious predator, always hunting his prey and conquering it with quick and brutal efficiency.  But the tiger rarely is successful with only a single claw, and is a more efficient hunter when using both claws.  Like the tiger, spear fighters are rarely successful alone and work better when combined with another.

 

Rules:    The tourney will be fought either double elimination or round robin format depending on the number of teams entering.Any bye fights will be fought by Sir Tearlach MacMillan and Lord Yusuf al-Rashid ibn Shirkuh       

 

1)  Only one member of the Chivalry may be on a team.

2)  The first team to eliminate both of their opponents win the round, in the event of a double kill only the two fighters that remained for the double kill will fight one-on-one again.

3)  Only 9ft spears may be used (fiberglass or rattan, spearheads/tips allowed based on Festival Conventions)

4)  No secondaries allowed and you can not cross the barrier.

5)  In the event that a fighter loses control of their spear a hold will be called, after a fighter loses control of their spear twice the fighter is counted as dead.
