The Military Physical Education and Sport Centre were 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. Prior to 1996 there were Departments of Physical Education at all four Military Colleges in Hungary.

Ten people work at the Centre: eight teachers of Physical Education with an MSc degree, a fencing instructor and an administrator with a BSc degree. Five of them are military officers.

The main goal is to improve the strength, endurance and agility of incoming cadets in different types of field environments, including the athletic facility, close combat, obstacle course, fencing or swimming.

The students are at BSc and MSc levels, including military cadets and civilian students and ERASMUS students as well.

Besides this the Centre also organises and takes part in different kinds of sporting events, from local military or civilian tournaments, through to national and international events. The officer cadets and students have always taken part in these tournaments with great success.

The Centre has excellent relations with the National Defence University of the Czech Republic and the Armed Forces Academy of Slovakia.
