Fencing Sport

Fencing is a combat sport, where two opponents who face each other, must try to touch each other with a knife (but without the weapon having neither edge nor point; that is, it cannot cut nor prick with it), in function of which three modalities are differentiated: saber, sword and foil. The word comes from the verb "esgrimir," and this in turn from the Germanic verb skermjan, which means to repair or protect. The opponents are called "fencers". When a shooter is "touched" by the weapon (in French "touché"), the opponent receives one point. A referee can say touché to refer to a touch using, for example, the French term for "no point", which is "pas de touché ". Fencing requires not only physical but also mental endurance.
