Can fencing techniques be used with the estoc?
>>42014851mom says not in the house
>>42014851No, because fencing is for actual, literal, likes-dick-in-the-ass faggots
>>42014851They were literally intended as a dedicated halfswording weapon, so in that sense yes.If you mean epee/smallsword stuff, no.
>>42014851Fencing just means defending/fighting with a weapon so yes. Dedicated fencing techniques that is but sure.
>>42014851why not just swing the fucking sword?
>>42017513Because it can't cut as it has no edges.
>>42014851I'm assuming you are referring to sport fencing.No. You can't.Sport fencing techniques are heavily atrophied, their aim is "to touch" rather than actually strike or stab.Most longsword techniques should be effective though.Also even if it is blunt, a hit to the hands, wrist, head or neck with a steel bar is still bad for the opponent.
>>42017835But the estoc is a stabby weapon, how are the techniques different?
>>42018116So spears and knives too.Length, weight, designs etc. there is nothing common between sport fencing "swords" and estocs.
>>42014851Technically any technique you use with a sword is fencing.
