The accepted combative position[1] is a position in formal wizard duelling that both duellists adopt after shortly bowing to each other, in order to show readiness for duel. The position consists of brandishing the wands, like swords in modern fencing. After a beat or, if preferred, on the count of three, the duellers start casting their first spells and start the duel.
