Purely a matter of opinion, with a lot of dissenting voices. If you only get somebody for four years and they have no prior experience (as is the case in most of collegiate fencing), you don't waste a year learning a bunch of skills from foil that don't transfer. Even under ideal conditions I don't know that it helps any. Most clubs start with foil because they have more foils around, more foil fencers, and more foil instructors. They're a little easier to handle, but you don't learn fundamental fencing skills more effectively from foil. You just learn how to fence foil.

one of the major reasons why would be tradition.... but foil give base for the other 2 the person that goes to epee will simply modify his target zone and forget about right of way and the guy that goes to sabre will add strikes slashes. but if one learns epee right from the start they have harder timing adapting to sabre if they ever wish to go that way. but either way starting with foil gives you a chane to master 2 weapons not jsut one. i went to epee i think when i was nine but i still did foil tournements until i was about 14 i think but still the earliest i know someoen started with epee was about 7-8 not at ages of 5. and i woudl hardly call foil easier to handle... epee is by far easier no right of way so speed is the trick and you can have alot more infighting with foil

One big difference here, btw, is that a longsword would be held with two hands by anyone who wasn't the Mountain that Rides. That is not to say that most women, or even most men, would have the strength needed to be expert longsword fighters. But certainly some could if trained.

I fear this thread has been derailed. What started out as an entertaining attempt to mock and shame fat and annoying women has turned into a D&D session.
