If u understand that's refering killing our sport... I can understand that's applies rules, will kill your... So what ? Make 2 différents weapons ? One who just change refering (common law), the other who continue without explicit law and logic. You will find that's strange... I think, you just don't care about foil fencing, if referee change the application of rules, you will just follow it without questionning. That's why i think, we don't need 2 weapons, we just need make FIE refering applie rules (and you'll can see some "attack on preparation", some "incorrect attack". You will see fencing threatening with point, you will see real attack with more technical move, and more tactic. And you also will see some long fight where nobody want to take the risk of attack (as Epee)) And that's not old school, (Some French refere refering as it 10y ago when i was in national competition, and i'm referee (learned 10y ago), i just apply what ive learn...) That's a question of coherence between referee too.
