General Operating Rules

1.15 - Interposition or Target Subsitution

If a fighter moves a target to receive a blow on a lower scoring target or an invalid target when the hit would have otherwise struck a higher value or valid target, the fencer making the imposition will be warned and the higher value target will be awarded.

Example: Fighter A is making a clean cut at Fighter B’s head. Fighter B raises his hand to intercept the blade and is struck only on the hand. B will be warned and A will receive two points as she otherwise would have struck B’s head. (And assuming sharp weapons would likely have struck both.)
