Thanks for your interest Australian. Please also take part in my poll "Yes or no to crossing over" above!!!

I like the way sabre is now. It isn't broken, why change it again? Granted I started fencing after the no-crossover rule was already in place so I have no direct experience with earlier days, but from what I've seen on video I much prefer the bouts I see today.

Sabre is already fast enough.

Having started fencing in 1965 and sabre in 1970, I like sabre the way it is now. Thank you very much. Leave it the way it is. Too bad they are going to change the blocking time which means making very rapid ripostes...
