Beginners’ Course

This semester’s beginners’ course will start on the 5th of February, 2019. The course takes ten weeks; together with a group of other novices you will receive an introduction in the art of fencing under supervision of maître Johan Walraven.

The training hours are from 20:30 to 22:00 every Tuesdays.

Among others a number of basic movements will be taught:

  • Fencing steps
  • Attacks
  • Parries
  • Ripostes
  • Compound attacks

The first training is in the Sports Centre Try-Out week, and can be attended without a Sport card. A sport card is mandatory to access the rest of the course. Fencing materials are supplied by the TU/e Sports centre and Hoc Habet. All you need is normal sporting clothes (preferably with long jogging trousers) and indoor sport shoes.

After the first month of lessons you’ll be asked to become a member of Hoc Habet, which in itself has a cost of 10 euros per semester.
