Nope.

In HEMA even if you land a hit it doesn't count if you take a hit in return, you have to be able to land a hit AND withdraw without being struck yourself otherwise it is just a trade and you haven't one uped your opponent at all.

This? Hit each other as hard and often as possible and hope for the best...

And for those people arguing "real" historical fights were like this... no... just no; and I'm not even going to bother typing the essay required to explain why.
