Rules: Two fighters face each other from a pre-determined distance (usually about ten feet). They start off in a crouched position similar to how a track runner starts off. Then each fighter holds a sword that is identical to the length of the other's at their sides. They should keep their other free hand off of the handle until they start, but it's not needed. At the count of three, the two fighters dash forward and "draw" their swords, aiming for their opponent's chest or waist. The first one struck with a lethal hit loses, and the survivor is the winner.

If both hits are non-lethal (that is, they strike an arm, leg, etc.), then there is a rematch.

It's important that the fighters do not dodge, halt, or perform any other action that would lengthen the match, since this is designed to be a sudden death match that is ended quickly.
