The epee (pronounced “EPP-pay”) is descended from the dueling rapier of the sixteenth and seventeenth century. It is similar in length to the foil, but is heavier, weighing approximately 27 ounces, with a larger guard and a much stiffer blade. The valid target area in epee is the entire body. Points are scored when an opponent hits anywhere on the body with the point of the weapon.MORE INFO
The foil was developed from the small-sword of the eighteenth century. It is a light weapon weighing less than one pound with a flexible rectangular blade, approximately 35 inches in length. The valid target area in foil is the torso. This area measures from the shoulders to the groin, includes the front and back but not the arms, neck, head and legs.MORE INFO
The sabre is descended from the eighteenth & nineteenth century cavalry sword. The valid target area in sabre is from the bend of the hips (both front and back), to the top of the head, simulating the cavalry rider on a horse.
