Learning a New Sport

Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School students had the chance to learn about the sport of fencing during a recent workshop with the owners and representatives from Mission Fencing, a Rocky Point-based fencing facility.

During their physical education classes, the students learned about the evolution of the sport and the different types of swords used during duels, as well as their early connections to self-defense. In addition, using pool noodles, the students had the chance to practice a few basic steps and competition moves.
