Then, let me use this time to add another article idea to those
I just mentioned in another message.

An article aimed at the spectator of one of these Pas' tournaments
that describes what to look for and what is going on. What any
processions are about. What "giving up of advantages" means and
what to look for. Why this fighting style might differ from our
standard tournaments and what to look for? What details to look
for in any processions.

In short, something that makes this type of tournament easier
to comprehend.
