Rocky Point Middle School students learned about swordsmanship, a sport and recreational activity with deep roots in history when owners of Mission Fencing visited and conducted in-class workshops for them.

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