Haruka Ayase visited the Motoyoshimachi Fencing Club, where the coach Eiji Miura and the fencing team kids all gave her a warm welcome. Then, she tried her hand at the aristocratic sport of fencing that started in Medieval Europe. They all smiled brightly watching Ms. Ayase battle strong opponents like Rirei Sato and other kids on the fencing team.
There are kids on this fencing team that lost their homes and families in the Great East Japan Earthquake but they help each other and strive on. And, to repay those who have helped them so much, they practice with all their might aiming to win a gold medal at the next Olympics.
