Which weapon was formerly used in Europe at the fencing sparrings?
Foil with its stipulated rules (such as priority of attack) was the only weapon used at sparrings. At the same time, in real duels an épée was used, and no such rules were observed. Hence, an experienced fencer could lose his life to a relatively weak opponent.
