Is there any risk of pain when poked with an epee? I had my first lesson last week and only played 1 point but I wasn't overly aggressive because I wasn't sure if there was any risk of pain when forcefully poked with the epee. I'm sure I'll get a better sense of this as I get more experience but would the worst case be equivalent to someone aggressively poking you with their finger if you weren't wearing any padding? Or would it be less than that? Another frame of reference would be, is it possible to get bruised by the epee when wearing FIE protective clothing, for someone with normal bruising tendency?
