A fencing instructor stopped a robbery last week while shopping at a mall in Tennessee (Bellevue). He did it with the very sword and protective gear he teaches classes with. The instructor was pulling into the mall parking lot when he noticed two men using pepper spray against a couple. One of then men stole the women’s purse and tried to get away. Flying into action the instructor jumped out of his car, grabbed his fencing sword, and took off towards the two robbers. He charged at them while yelling. The robbers completely panicked and dropped everything they stole. The robbers were arrested moments later.
