Foot fencing is a colloquial term -- usually used in a derogatory fashion -- to describe a style of taekwondo sparring in which the athletes each keep one leg in the air, each athlete hopping around the other on one foot, in an attempt to score a kick with the lofted leg. In other words, the athletes are "fencing" using legs instead of swords. In many sport-style tournaments this style of sparring is technical legal, but is considered "bad form" -- i.e., it's not really taekwondo, even though it's not breaking any rules. Some tournaments now impose rules about how long one leg may be lofted in the air at a single time, usually limiting this to something on the order of 3 seconds.
