    I have no immediate posts that depend upon the answer, but just what is included in this section? Does it include rapier fencing from Agrippa onward? Or is it three weapon fencing from the classical era onward? Or something in between?

    Thank you.

    Well... the description reads: The Foil, The Epee and The Sabre. A discussion of the European Art of Fencing, its techniques, schools, styles, equipment and ideas. So it seems to be directed for the more modern "sport" fencing... But, honestly, activity here is so rare I wouldn't care!

    So essentially, classical (which is foil, epee, and sabre) onward.

    I just wanted to be sure before posting more, as I see a lot of threads that deviate. I appreciate the response. I will try to liven things up as best as I can.
