This was a great part of the ceremony. These two students were tasked with showing some of the combat strikes that are done with bayonets. They were doing lunges and thrusts and all kinds of fun sounding stuff . . . except they are meant for killing people.
I was again really impressed with their display and maturity as the student on the left lost his hat during the drill but never once broke focus. All attention remained on the task at hand and it gave it a very real feeling.
