practitioners, here on planet Earth, and to give them the opportunity to meet and duel under a common set of
rules and principles:
- To establish safe practice, with a Code of Conduct, and minimum standards for protective equipment,
blades and hilts, and by prohibiting any techniques that pose a significant threat to the health of the
participants or spectators
- To encourage cross training and provide an opportunity for social interaction between academies and clubs
- To collect feedback from academies and clubs, and to provide a channel for new ideas to be shared
- To allow all academies and clubs to evolve and develop their own cultures and practices, provided that they adhere to LSOT protocols when they meet other affiliates for sparring or competition
- To have FUN!
- To provide the service to all affiliated clubs for no charge
- To be inclusive and welcoming to all clubs and academies, regardless of their other affiliations
