Tournament
As this is the 10th edition we wanted to do something special. A little more emphasis on the social aspect of HEMA than on competition. Still there is a tournament! But it’s quite informal. All participants start with the same amount of tokens. You challenge anyone you like and you get tokens when you win, depending on if you are the challenger or the challenged or if you decline an challenge. You can earn tokens also by attending workshops, a way to redeem yourself in case you lose all your fights and have no tokens left. You can gain more as the instructor will have some tokens as well, to give away to those that excel in his workshop.
We keep track of how many fights you won and in the end a few top fighters will come out and there will be ‘King of the Hill’ as a final challenge.
There will also be an auction, where you can use your acquired tokens and bid on the stuff you like.

We, the AMEK, hope to see you there to celebrate the 10 years union between the Lowlands Clubs!
