When Chickenfoxes were introduced to the sport of fencing, they initially focused on the basics and refining their equipment. Now that they have perfected their swordmasks and padded jackets, they have taken on the three weapons as separate styles.
Foil – Using only the point of the blade, the target is the torso. Head, leg and tail touches do not count.
Epee – Using only the point of the blade, the target is the whole body.
Sabre – The entire blade can be used (thrusts and cuts both count), the target is everything above the waist (hits to the the tail do not count).
