Fencing

foil epee

Fencing, sport of combat using a blunted sword (foil, epee, or saber), descended from the duel. In fencing the object is to touch, not wound, one's opponent. Fencers wear protective clothing and masks. Only the tip of the flexible foil and the stiffer epee may be used to score hits.
