That pretend sword fighting left a very real dent in our one-week-old fridge. I never saw my dad so pissed off. He couldn't even speak, he just walked away. Good thing they were wooden renfare swords.

Not really. Epee is designed to be like a duel. There's no target area, you can hit and be hit at the same time etc. Foil was originally a training weapon for Epee. The rules in it are really based on good duelling technique - aim for the chest, move first, hit without getting hit etc.

Sabre is based on how you'd attack someone from horseback.
