THE SABRE

There are three types of fencing - epee, foils and sabre.

In all three, weapons are wired electronically to record when a hit is scored.

The main difference with the sabre is that you can score with the edge of the blade.

As a result, movements with the sabre and the ensuing attacks are very fast.

As with the foil, sabre uses the convention of right-of-way to determine who acquires the touch.

The target area is from the waist up, but excludes the hands.
