Helsinki Longsword Open 2022

May 20 @ 15:00 - May 21 @ 21:00 UTC+2
EHMS will aim to host the eighth annual open longsword competition on the 20th and 21st of May 2022.
This year we will be hosting a total of six competitions; Open Longsword, Women’s Longsword, Longsword Cutting, Open Sabre, Open Katana and Triathlon which combines the Longsword, Cutting and sabre tournaments.

Open Longsword is capped at 72 participants, Sabre at 24 participants, Longsword cutting at 30 and Katana at 12 participants. Womens Longsword does not have a participant cap at the moment.

Triathlon

You will automatically take part in the Triathlon if you register for at least one of the Longsword tournaments (women can take part in both) and cutting and sabre. If you take part in both of the Longsword tournaments, only your higher placement will count towards your Triathlon placement.
