Rules to play Fencing
Limitation of the Target
At foil, only hits which arrive on the target are counted as valid. The target at foil excludes the limbs and the head. It is confined to the trunk, the upper limit being the collar up to 6cm above the prominences of the collar bones; at the sides to the seams of the sleeves, which should cross the head of the humerus; and the lower limit following a horizontal line across the back joining the tops of the hip bones, thence by straight lines to the junction of the lines of the groin (see Figure).
