ANYONE WELCOME NO MATTER WHAT AGE OR ABILITY
Foil is the modern version of a rapier; it has a thin, flexible blade with a square cross-section and a small bell guard. Hits are scored with the point, anywhere on the opponent's torso including the groin and back Illustrated below.
The Foil is probably the best all round weapon.
The Sabre differs from the other modern fencing weapons, the Épée and Foil, in that it is possible to score with the edge of the blade and the point anywhere above the hips including the head as Illustrated below; for this reason, sabreur movements and attacks are very fast.
