Learn good sportsmanship and self-discipline at the Bayou City Fencing Academy held at The Woodlands Township Recreation Center. Fencing is an Olympic sport enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels worldwide. Sometimes described as a physical “game of chess,” the activity provides physical and cognitive benefits. It takes strategy and quick reflexes..
Join instructors Delfina Perka, a member of the 1980 Polish Olympic team, and Albert Peters, former head coach of fencing at Cornell University, to learn footwork, technical instruction and bouting.
Fencers will gain a sense of accomplishment when winning and learn to profit from their defeats. They learn to make complex decisions, analyze problems, and think fast on their feet. These ideals help children reach their potential in many areas other than fencing.
