WHAT IS FENCING?
In foil the valid target area includes the torso (including the lower part of the bib of the mask) and the groin. The head (except the lower neck proportion of the mask), arms, and legs are considered off target. Touches made off target do not count for points, but do stop play.
épée is the only one in which the entire body is the valid target area. Épée is the heaviest of the three modern fencing weapons. Fencing matches with the épée require a large amount of concentration, accuracy and speed. Since the entire body is a target, a successful épée fencer must be able to anticipate their opponent's moves and strike their opponent at the correct time.
The target area for sabre consists of the torso above the waist, as well as the arms and head (excluding both hands). When fencing with electric equipment, a manchette, or sabre cuff, is used in conjunction with the lamé and electrically conductive mask to ensure that the entire target area forms a single circuit.
