En garde!

 Last night our elder's quorum hosted a fencing activity. One of the guys in the ward owns a fencing studio, so he brought his swords and gear for us to try out, and gave us a lesson.

 Here I'm poking our elder's quorum president over and over with a sword. It's surprisingly hard allow yourself to stab someone you know and like.

Chris and I geared up, but didn't fight each other. Chris did a little sword play with another guy.
I let a girl stab me over and over so she could practice her lunges. Not something you normally do at church...

 Chris is the guy in tan shorts. He and Taylor were pretty good together. It was fun to watch!

 Ethan and Josh had a chance to take a lesson for a few minutes. They were pretty good at it, and talked about using a sword the whole way home. Someday maybe they can take fencing lessons.


  1. Hooray! So happy this activity went down. Too bad we're not still there, we could try to hit Shane up for a Corry Village sponsored after-school program for the kids! :)

  2. that is so VERY COOL. Just imagine what you could do with those machettes in Guatemala with your training!
