On May 9, James McBean, of the Jamaican Fencing Association, gave a demonstration of the sport and art of fencing. Using foils, he trained students to thrust, retreat, parry, repost, salute, stand en garde and appreciate the speed and accuracy required in fencing. Joe, Steven, Leah, Miss Linton and Matthieu each demonstrated their enthusiasm and showed skills much appreciated by the audience.

As a special surprise, Dr. Bleyberg put on the gear and went several rounds with Mr. McBean, to the delight of the students.

Mr. McBean hopes to see a Jamaican National Team at the Olympics one day.
