       Measured by shoulders? Do you ever have an issue with folks in a "fencers stance" shoulders running front to rear and thus their back faces either right or left of the line and there cant be struck? We discussed this idea for GW and found alot of resistence to it for this reason.
      Just curious

      Interestingly enough, at Pennsic this year they have chosen the same
      convention for DFB as we use in Ealdormere:

      Fighters may strike any opponent with any legal blow if they are within the
      180-degree arc of the opponent's front, as measured from the plane of the
      opponent's shoulders. A fighter who approaches an opponent from behind shall
      not deliver a blow until he is within that frontal arc. A fighter may never
      strike an opponent from behind. In addition, fencers should make a
      reasonable attempt to get an opponent's attention before throwing a blow.
