The internationally accomplished instructors at each Bayou City Fencing Academy challenge students in classes that engage both body and mind. Masters teach basic attacks and guards for sport fencing with foils, which cultivates agility and endurance, plus the analytical stamina to outsmart an opponent while balanced on a yoga ball. Youth ages 12–18 leap and lunge across the sparring arena as they practice their parries and ripostes during beginner/novice classes, and blades clank between miniature duelers in musketeer classes for children ages 7–11 years. Electronic scoring machines infuse sessions with sophistication and help keep matches as streamlined as a precooked fettuccini noodle.

Overseen by head instructor Delfina Perka, the experienced coaches at both Bayou City Fencing Academy locations teach fencers of all skill levels to lunge and parry like the swordsmen of old. A master fencer with the United States Fencing Association, Delfina hails from Poland and represented the country at the 1980 Olympic Games. Today, she grooms her students to strive for the same level of success, helping them improve quickness, endurance, and the mental agility required to remember victory speeches from The Three Musketeers.
