There are minor differences
in the areas of:
1. "organised combat", "display combat"
and "Non-organised combat".
2. The use of Head combatants rather than Marshalls.
3. Resolving Disputes in Combat
4. Minimum Protection
5. Maximum Spear lengths
To make it fair and
equitable for as many participants as possible, variations
to the rules can be agreed on the day, by the majority
of combatants involved in any combat. NOT by spectators
or by non-combatants. (If you're not in a fight you
don't get to determine how it will be run).
The rules for Combat Archery will be dictated by those groups
who practice this discipline and by those who will be participating
in this activity at the event.
Tourneys and Tournaments:In response to the interest, support and participation of numerous ALHF and non ALHF groups around Australia, Danelaw has established these rules for Tournament Combat as a guideline for groups interested in hosting interclub tournaments.
Interclub Combat Rules and Additional Safety Standards for Competitive Tournaments are addressed in the following documents:
Further information and Kiwi's competition
discussion paper is available here.
Rules for display combat will be at the discretion of the
Group putting on the display. If you intend to put on display
combat, please inform us of your Display Combat Rules prior
to the event for insurance purposes.
