Fencing Club Trekanten and Gothenburg Fencing Club have the pleasure of inviting you to participate in our annual summer camp.
We hope you will join us for 5 days of intensive fencing training in preparation for the new season.
The camp is a large social event for the entire club of Trekanten and has over the years become increasingly international with talented fencers coming from Sweden, Germany, England, France, Egypt, Italy, the Netherlands, the United States and more.
The vast majority of the fencers is not from Denmark, and the most common language in the camp is English.
The camp will offer instruction at all skill levels.
The summer camp consists mainly of fencing and physical training. We also emphasize technical preparation and all fencers can therefore receive lessons from the fencing masters and take part in numerous fencing drills.
The training sessions are led by the club’s own coaches together with a group of especially invited fencing masters from abroad:
Malte Trier Mørch
Head of foil fencing in Trekanten and overall responsible for the summer camp fencing program
Martin R. Kronwall
Coach from Fencing Club Gothenburg – partners on the planning of the fencing program
Stephane Le Bleis
Fencing master and head coach at CEP in Paris.
From Trekanten responsible for epee. Former Polish National team fencer
Ed Jeffries Former British national team fencer and coach in Shanghai.
Now Trekanten’s new sportschef, foil and epee coach.
