By: Howard Wu - Published: Aug 1, 2008 • References: seniorsworldchronicle
You have to give credit where credit is due. At Melbourne, Australia’s Catholic Homes Corpus Christi, active seniors have found fencing to be a hobby that will keep them sharp both mentally and physically.  Most of the participants at this particular seniors’ home are retired priests and nuns.

As you can see in the picture, the use of walkers doesn’t act as a deterrent to these swordfighters.

One would be hard-pressed to find the next Zorro, Robin Hood, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle in this group, but their spirit cannot be questioned.
