Our third Valkyrie Rapier Open tournament offered an exciting twist on our established format. Not only did we add a new category for top-level fighters, but we also mixed up targeting rules to challenge everyone, and offer our junior fighters a chance for more fights. We had 20 fighters from across the Lower Mainland mixing it up all day and saw some nail-bitingly close matches. Two categories were settled by tie-breaker fights, and everyone left satisfied. Congratulations to our winners!
- Category 1 and Overall: Jason Homfeld (SCA)
- Category 2: Vincent Chiu (Valkyrie WMAA)
- Category 3: Philip Persad (Valkyrie WMAA)
- Category 4: Taber Smit (Valkyrie WMAA)
