1n1 tss Fencing

  1. 1. • Fencing is a family of sports and activities that feature armed combat involving cutting, stabbing or bludgeoning weapons that are directly manipulated by hand. Rather than shot, thrown or positioned. In contemporary common usage, fencing tends to refer specifically to Europeans schools of swordsmanship and to the modern Olympic sport that has evolved out of them.
  2. 2. The foil was originally developed as a training weapon, and is much lighter and easier to use. Most fencers start out learning foil, so that they become accustomed to handling a blade and learn the rules and traditions of fencing. A foil has a small hand guard and a rectangular blade. Points can only be scored with the tip of a foil on the torso, chest, shoulders and back of the opponent: limbs are excluded. Double touches are not allowed. Many fencers stick with foil, and it is the predominant weapon used in tournaments. Foil: Epee is a point weapon, with a blade which appears v-shaped in cross section. A large hand guard is used to protect the fencer, who scores with the tip of the weapon only on any part of the body. Epee: Saber: The saber is a much heavier, slightly curved blade with a y-shaped cross section. It is the only bladed weapon used in sport fencing, and can be used on any part of the body above the waist. All parts of a saber can be used for scoring, and many fencers slash at their opponents, just as sword fighters of old would have done.
  3. 3. Heavy canvas jacket are also used to cover the arms. Additional chest protection are included for female fencers, gloves and snug pants to protect the legs too. Fencing clothes is designed to allow freedom of movement for rapid movements and footwork, so that observers can see what is going on. In competitions, the fencer also wears special shoes which are designed to help them move quickly and efficiently. Finally, fencers are to wear a special helmet at all times to protect the face and eyes. Traditionally, a fencing bout will pause whenever a fencer is hit to determine who the point goes to. In a flurried bout where multiple blows might have been received on both sides, the fencer who is hit first must yield the point. Observers help to enforce the honor system, and modern technology has also brought about the use of the electric jacket, which registers a legal hit with a loud noise. Saber electric jacket
