We shall have a series of 8 different competitions, in a variety of styles, designed to test even the best of our combatants. Each competition shall produce 1 victor, for a total of 8. Those 8 champions will then advance to a single elimination, head to head playoff round, to determine The Champion fencer for Our reign. If someone should be victorious in more than one of the preliminary rounds, they will have the honour to choose another fencer to fill their additional spot in the elimination round.
