Cesar Morales Teaches Blind Students Confidence, Balance Through Fencing

For Cesar Morales, fencing is a lifelong passion, one he is now using to make a difference for blind students in Massachusetts.

By teaching the young people how to fence, Morales shows them how to balance, making it easier for them to get around smoothly on a daily basis. Competing in fencing also boosts the students' self-confidence. Morales makes his blind pupils work hard in practice sessions, but at the end of the day, he's happy to be bringing smiles to their faces.
