Fencing, which is also known as modern fencing to distinguish it from historical fencing,[1] is a family of combat sports using bladed weapons.
Fencing is one of four sports which have been featured at every one of the modern Olympic Games. Three types of weapon are used in Olympic fencing:
Foil—a light thrusting weapon that targets the torso, including the back and shoulders, but not the arms. Hits are scored only with the tip; hits with the side of the blade do not count. Only a single hit can be scored by either fencer at one time. If both fencers hit at the same time, the referee uses the rules of right of way to determine which fencer gets the point.
Sabre—a light cutting and thrusting weapon that targets the entire body above the waist, except for the hands. The sabre is primarily used to slash, so hits with the side of the blade as well as the tip are valid. Right of way applies—only one fencer can score at a time.
Épée—a heavy thrusting weapon that targets the entire body. All hits must be with the tip and not the sides of the blade. Unlike foil and sabre, Épée does not use right of way, and allows simultaneous hits by both fencers.
