During the second period of a 10 touch (i.e. Veteran) direct elimination bout, having been warned in the first period that they were not actively attempting to score, the fencers contine to not actively attempt to score. The Referee should:
a. Give each fencer a YELLOW CARD
b. call "Halt!" Award each fencer with a RED CARD. The fencers will go straight into the next period of fencing, without the minut break and without the
The tendonitis is somewhat manageable. [Pause to knock on wood.] I can fence as long as I'm wearing my sleeve cuff without any sensations of pain during or afterwards, although I do ice it ASAP to be safe.

The non-combativity rules are a little confusing to me as a sabre fencer, so these are also giving me some problems. I THINK I've got it. The change I found reads:

I've been reviewing the changes and marking what I believe to be the correct responses but when I reached this one, I had a problem:
48. No penalties have been given. After causing incidental corps a corps with Fencer Y, Fencer X leaves the side of the strip with both feet.
a. Y advances one meter; X receives a yellow card in foil and sabre
b. Y holds ground except if it would cause X to be placed behind X's end line; X receives a yellow card in foil and sabre.
