The three types of weapon are used in Olympic fencing: Foil uses a light thrusting weapon and the valid target is restricted to the torso, Epée uses a heavy thrusting weapon and the valid target is the entire body ,and Sabre which uses a light cutting and thrusting weapon and the valid target area includes almost everything above the waist.
