ÉPÉE: The épée is heavier and stiffer, but like the foil, a thrusting weapon. For electric scoring the 'electric' épée has a push-button to register a touch. RULES: Protocol determines the behaviour of fencers and the referee’s command is law. In épée the target is the entire body. No right of way rules, every hit counts. TACTICS: These include various parries and attacks, “faking” actions, provocing reactions and quickly scoring on mistakes. Posture, balance, speed, and quick footwork are the key to good timing and distance control.
