What are the major rules for modern olympic fencing?

The answer varies slightly depending on the weapon being used. (Both fencers will use the same type of weapon) Common Rules: All safety and scoring equipment must be tested prior to the event. Scoring is accomplished by achieving a touch on the opponent's target area during the action of a bout. The director will start and stop (or halt) the bout. No one may score after a halt. A pool bout is to 5 touches or 3 minutes. An elimination bout (or DE) is to a score of 15 touches, or 9 minutes. There is no tie, a one minute sudden death over time will be used if needed. This is called "Fencing to priority." A bout begins with a salute and ends with a shaking of (un-weaponed) hands. The bout takes place on the fencing strip. Stepping off the strip will halt the bout and, in the case of stepping off the end of the strip, a touch will be awarded to the other fencer. Foil and saber: A fencer must have the right-of-way as well as be on target for a touch be be scored. Only one fencer can score at a time. Epee: There is no right-of-way and both fencers may score a touch at the same time. The target area is inclusive of the entire body so there is no off target so long as the touch is on the fencer.
