Fencing is a sport of stabbing and defensive actions using various kinds of edged weapons. Fencing has a long Olympic history: the sport has been a part of the Olympics since 1896.
As a sport, there are three types of weapons in fencing:
The main difference between the three types of weapons is that using a different object, the shots for which points are awarded are made in different parts of the body. For example, a jab delivered by a rapier will only count if the blow was delivered to the electric jacket area. A saber shot will count if struck in any part of the body, including the arms that are above the waist, it is also possible to hit the protective mask on the face. Epee fencing gives fencers complete freedom of action, because to get a good shot, it’s enough to hit any part of your opponent’s body, whether it’s the torso, head or leg.
