The foil is a thrusting weapon only. Offensive actions with this weapon are made therefore with the point and with the point only.
Pushing or dragging the point of the electric weapon 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.
At foil it is forbidden, during the course of fencing, to advance the shoulder of the non-sword arm in front of the shoulder of the sword arm (cf. t.36 Judges). Any hit scored by the fencer at fault while committing this offence will be annulled.
Any breaking of these rules will be punished according to Articles t.114, t.116, t.120.
