Swordfighting in Boulder

Yes I worry as a parent. Am I doing the right thing? Am I raising Will-J to be a happy, healthy boy? And so I end up reading a lot of parenting guidance, observing other parents, etc.

Then I go running in Boulder today, and I see not one but two summer camp groups of kids doing play swordfighting. The one group appeared to give each kid one long padded sword, while the other opted for the more sophisticated approach of two swords - one long and one short.

Swordfighting? Parents trying to raise their kids as D&D geeks? Parents concerned about the coming end-days - like that movie Book of Eli - where people have to fight with swords?

I find it very weird.
