While you may have witnessed it, and they may have done it, it is expressly 
forbidden by the Society Sidesword experiment rules.

Under "Marshalling Concerns in Sidesword Combat"

"7. Tournies: For the purpose of this initial experiment, sidesword combat is 
not to be used in tournaments. Especially tournaments that allow awarding of 
rank such as a queen's rapier tournament. Sidesword combat may be used for 
exhibitions such as playing of a prize or for demonstrations."

It *is* a violation of the rules and of the express premise of the program.

Sounds to me like a good way to derail the program to me.
