It is worth visiting us
Olimpici Grand Prix  is a popular épée competition serie with a lot of competitors. Meanwhile the five different competition places in Hungary offer other leisure & cultural programs for the young fencers, for their family and for their coaches.

About Olimpici GP
Olimpici Grand Prix is a rather young but highly qualified competition serie in the world of Hungarian epée-fencing, launched in 2006. Győző Kulcsár, our great fencing master and olympic champion has founded the Olimpici Public Benefit Foundation together with his enthusiastic team. The idea is based on a concept to give new stamina, competition environment for the upcoming generation of epée-fencers.

Age groups in the season of 2019/2020:

Törpici / Minis (born after 01.01.2009.)
They are not allowed to compete in other age groups!
Gyermek / Kids (born between 01.01.2007. – 31.12.2008.)
Újonc / Novices (born between 01.01.2006. – 31.12.2008.)
Serdülő / Adolescents (born between 01.01.2005. – 31.12.2008.)

Formula
The participants can compete depending on their age in four age-categories created by the Olimpici Public Fundation. Now the structures could be more sensitive to the knowledge, experience in specific age-categories… plus, we created a new age-category for the real beginner but up-to-competition generation, called Törpici, which means Mini fencer… smile

Equipment
General rules
According to the rules of the FIE and the Hungarian Fencing Federation fencers in all age groups have to armed with equipments match the general safety regulations: compulsory to wear underplastron with FIE label of 800 NW sign; mask, jacket and breeches with FIE label of 350 NW sign.
Masks
The new safety fastening system of fencing masks IS NOT NECESSARY for the diffrent age-categories of Olimpici GP.

 

THE OLD AND NEW SAFETY FASTENING SYSTEM IS AUTHORIZED ON THE OLIMPICI GRAND PRIX COMPETITION SERIE!

In Hungary the NEW SYSTEM IS APPLIED for cadets, juniors and adults.
