Fencing
This is one of the oldest fencing styles adopted in the West. It was fully developed in the 16th century. It uses a blade primarily used for thrusting, the Rapier, which is well balanced. It is also rarely called the "slashing rapier". If a fencer chooses a Style (see below), it will most likely be Wrestling. A second weapon Technique will be dagger before any other.
