FENCING... a combat sport between two individuals, each armed with a similar weapon and takes place in a strictly defined playing area. There are rules governing such things as the validity of the target and the way in which points or "hits" may be scored. The modern sport uses three weapons (foil, epee and sabre) each with its own distinct rules and characteristics. Please click the buttons below for details of each weapon.
