En Garde! The Blind Fence Fearlessly

Produced, shot and edited by Aynsley Floyd

Fencing? For individuals who are blind? Yes. It’s one of many unique features of the rehabilitation program at the Carroll Center for the Blind. Fencing for the blind and visually impaired person is more than a sport – it’s helpful off the strip too. Fencing helps in learning to navigate the physical world more effectively by honing skills and sharpening senses. Participants develop the balance, dexterity and coordination necessary for walking with a cane.
