The technique and tactics of a sports epee bout was formed under the influence of three main rules of conducting such a bout. The first is the ability of executing hits to all parts of the body and, primarily, to the torso, weapon arm, mask and the leading leg. While the second condition of the bout, even more important, is the extremely short pre-emptive time (0.04-0.05 secs) set on the scoring equipment for registering only the earliest executed hits during mutual attempts. The successful action is most frequently the one in which the epee point is moved closer to the opponent’s valid target by 20-30 cm. The third rule determines the awarding of mutual hits to both fencers.
