to anyone out their reading this who thinks they know Jack about sword fighting and they do not fence or do something based on sword fighting. I am here to inform you that you are WRONG!!!! Foil's are based on one of the most fast paced types of sword fighting. claymore's, and broadswords are slow by comparison. why you ask? because those are primarily slashing weapons and a rapier is a very light weight thrusting weapon, and any fencer who can't land a touch before someone swings a broadsword needs to retire, because a lunge should take less than 1 sec. so all the people in my 4th block class. I would own you in a sword fight. end of discussion.
