 Fencing Rules - The Conventions of Fencing Épée 
  1. Method of making a Hit


The épée is a thrusting weapon only. Attacks with this weapon are therefore made with the point, and with the point only.

Pushing or letting the point of the electric weapon drag on the electric piste is forbidden during the actual bout (between ‘Play’ and ‘Halt’).

Straightening the weapon on the piste at any time is also forbidden.

Any breaking of these rules will be punished according to Articles t.114, t.116, t.120. Schedule of Offences

FIE  t.61
