Classical Fencing refers to the historical development of the protocols, procedures, principles, conventions and rules of combat required to adjudicate and judge competition fencing.  Classical fencing refers to the "conventional" disciplines of Foil (developed as the training weapon for the "thrust" and Sabre for the "cut") these disciplines are visually adjudicated by a President du Jury assisted by Judges who determine the materiality of the touch.  Classical Fencing is governed by applying the rules for competition developed up to the introduction of the electrical scoring apparatus for the foil which was at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games. Classical foil and sabre fencing competitions are visually adjudicated with the Finals often fenced electric.   LINK: AAI  LINK: Christian d'Oriola

Sport Fencing    Sport fencing is Olympic competition fencing in the disciplines of electric foil, epee and sabre. These weapons are electronically judged and adjudicated by a Referee. The electrical scoring apparatus judges the materiality of the hit.  As with many modern sports, fencing continues to evolve with its focus on athleticism and public popularity.  To this end the rules of competition are continually changing to meet these demands.   Sport fencing is governed by the National Sporting Federations and the Federation Internationale d'Escrime.
