i say schools should teach sword fighting because it would be self defense and would help students defend the school if someone broke in while classes were going on


Schools should not be teaching activities such as these for multiple reasons:
1. It encourages violence
2. It is unnecessary
3. Most schools currently have systems in place for break-ins
4. We can do things like this extra circularly. There are so many programs outside of school nowadays that teach self defense. I'm sure there is a few that teach sword fighting as a hobby.
5. Students who misuse or joke around about what they learned may cause injury or death to another student
6. Some students may just not be interested in this type of learning and others may think it's too violent
7. Given that this is something that takes quite a bit of practice and materials, how will swords or materials for every student be purchased? It would be a lot of money as schools usually house many students. It will also take up a lot of time. Up to two hours of the day! Because in some schools there are up to 30 students in a class, they wouldn't be learning in picking things up in that time period.
8. Yes, some may find it fun but I see it as an easy way for someone to get hurt. Eyeballs are things that might not want to be poked out.

true those are risks but it wouldn't be for everyone to join it would only be a few that get accepted by chance or show that they have skill already or have a weapon already that requires some training to truly handle ya know properly
