Maestro Rorik Janssen

The International Fencing Camp Bocholt has been created and realized by the Dutch fencing master Rorik Janssen, only one year after the foundation of the first fencing club in the entire history of Bocholt. Rorik Janssen again started to work as a national coach for Epée, in his land of origin, the Netherlands. The Dutch national team, is identical with the team of the club Scaramouche in Arnhem. As a big surprise they took hold of the "Coupe d'Europe" in Heidenheim, the famous "Wimbledon of Epée-Fencing", last February


The first #IFCB, the original and most multi-cultural in Germany, took place in August 2010. Since then almost 1.100 participants and 45 coaches from 35 worldwide nations visited the Camp in the City of Bocholt.

In 2023, like in 2022, a group of young Ukrainian Fencres has been present at the Camp, on invitation of Fencing Team Bocholt.

With their coach Ruslan Tymoshenko! A new invitation for the #IFCB2024 has been handed out.
