what do fencing referees do?

Fencing referees serve an integral role in fencing competitions, and many referees compete in the sport themselves. Certified by the Fencing Officials Commission at different levels of advancement, they observe each bout, award touches and make sure all rules are being followed.

WHAT DO FENCING ARMORERS DO? 

Certified fencing armorers repair and maintain equipment, and at tournaments inspect equipment to make sure it's safe and functional for competition. Though fencing is an extremely safe sport, the care and maintenance of equipment ensures safe and long-lasting gear.
