Dallas Fencers Club
Nearly a century ago, the Dallas Fencers Club took root, keeping the age-old Olympic sport alive in Texas. Today, the club continues to flourish under the leadership of head coach Waldek Czaja, who draws on decades of experience to guide students in the art of the blade. As pupils of all ages learn to thrust and parry with traditional weapons such as foils and épées—updated versions of primitive fencing's sharpened baguettes—Czaja helps them to develop coordination and strategic thinking as they potentially train for medals in competition. Throughout the youth program, Czaja operates under the philosophy that the drive and determination protégés develop in class can apply to life's myriad challenges, from learning to play the flute to solving a Rubik’s cube with a sledgehammer.
