I understand that fencing, in general, has experienced many changes. However that may be, one should consider the ramifications when arbitrarily changing rules and requirements. Mr. Roche would be well advised to consult w/ his Italian counterparts before he launches a rule change. Nontheless, this ruling, if official, will require a complete review of what constitutes fencing, both classical and Olympic. As the late Edwin R. Murrow often said, :Good night and good luck."

I was at the seminar in question. As a clarification, the new rule is the same as the one in saber -- the attack with a lunge ends with the landing of the front foot. I would assume it also contains the old language that in the case of a fleche the attack ends with the landing of the rear foot or, in the case of a compound attack with the fleche, the landing of the front foot. Really, no one seemed too excited by the news. It's in-line with how foil has been called at national and international levels for a couple years. Some refs have even called it locally the last couple years to the chagrine of some.
Most every reputable coach I know has taught for years that the touch should arrive before the front foot lands anyway. It's changing that from good technique to a rule.
By a free country, I mean a country where people are allowed, so long as they do not hurt their neighbours, to do as they like. I do not mean a country where six men may make five men do exactly as they like. ~ Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Salisbury
AAAAHHHH haa ha ha!!!!! i just have to laugh at this!!!!! Yea... This is how sabre is called.... so if you get hit in the middle of your cross step foilists,,,, The attack into your preparation lands!!!
it is kind of time for saber fencers to say "welcome to our world!"

schlager7: A lot of clubs won't go younger than 10 or 12, but a few take students as young as 7. (I know because there are competitions for youth 8 & under at some tournaments).
