The State Department's new Martial Arts Campus located near Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University has come under fire from activists who claim they're training people to murder.
The school accepts qualified applicants from the military and intelligence branches of government. The twelve week course "hones practical weapons skills" and "provides background into basic chemistry" according to official documents.
Protesters point out that they're teaching students the science of poisons. Rumor has it that bomb making is also taught at the school.
"If a soldier wasn't trained in dozens of ways to kill before the classes, they sure are when they graduate," said rally organizer Moon Phoenix.
