Introduction of the Centre of Military Physical Education and Combat Sports,
The Centre of Military Physical Education and Combat Sports was established in 1996 at the Zrínyi Miklós National Defence University as a Military Physical Education and Sport Institute. However, according to the recent changes in the legal area, we changed our name as well. Prior to 1996 there were Departments of Physical Education at all four Military Colleges in Hungary.
Eight people work at the Centre: six teachers of Physical Education with a MsC degree, a fencing instructor with BsC degree and an administrator. Five of us are military officers.
Our main goal is to improve the strength, endurance and agility of incoming cadets on different types of field enviroments, including the athletic facility, close combat, obstacle course, fencing or swimming area.
We teach them in each of the semesters and cadets have to complete all the given tests of the specific semester from the more common tests to the highly specialited ones.
We are teaching at the BsC and MsC levels, including military cadets and civilian students. Additionally we are teaching ERASMUS as well.
Besides this we are organizing and taking part in different kind of sport events too, from the local military or civilian tournaments through the national and international ones as well. Our cadets and students have been taking part in these tournaments with great success.
We have excellent relations with the National Defence University of the Chek Republic and the Armed Forces Academy of Slovakia.
