a new sport akin to fencing but engaging in battle using the wooden stilts strapped to the legs that the contestants are also walking on.

       I think we all tried this as children - how would you score it?   

       Oh, and po, it's just possible this is Widely Baked, if you consider Belgium to be Wide, and you rename it "stilt jousting."

       So hop-able stilts, with slashing blades on?

       I envision this as a circus act. If there was a fighting stilt that was lighter and a heavy standing stilt that had a gyroscope it would make it easier. Not that true stilt fencers have any truck with "easier"; I mean for beginners and hobbyists.   

       The fighting stilt could have decals of fanged creatures, flames etc.
