Posted: Updated:
Minneapolis -

The Minnesota Sword club is teaching modern fencing to kidsas young as 6.

They learn Olympic fencing which has light swords andeverything is very quick.

Not all that different from medieval sword fighting.

A fencer not only has to use their body in a bout–they haveto use their brain.

The only injury this club has had in 30 years, was whensomeone broke their hand while falling backwards.
