While going through the referee study guide I came to the question about length of the gauntlet, and was reminded of an issue I had with a fencer who had extremely long arms (for some strange reason he was fencing Epee. Go figure). Anyway, the kids jacket arms we're too short to stay under the gauntlet of his glove. I required him to get a new jacket, but today, I could not find an actual statement in the material rules that said how much of the arm the jacket had to cover (only reference I could find was that it had to cover the entierty of the trunk in Epee and foil).
Sooo.... Just to be pendantic, anyone know if there is an actual written specification on the length of the sleeve of the jacket, or can someone show up with cut off sleeves and a glove and insist on fencing? (ahh hyperbole, what would I do without you? )
