The 11th class of the Ecole Internationale des Maîtres d'Armes in Dakar (Senegal) started in January 2016. It comprises 17 students from 14 countries, including a female student from Botswana. The training period covers 11 months, ending in November 2016. Mr Mbagnick Ndiaye participated in the opening lunch with the students on 25 January 2016. He gave the students words of encouragement and advised them to make the most of their stay at the EIMA.
The students have a similar level, both in terms of theory and practice, as was confirmed by the instructors, who are very satisfied with the group's overall level. The FIE provided the students and instructors with the necessary equipment, as well as 3 strips and 3 signalling machines for operations in schools.
Students will have an initial evaluation at the end of May 2016. Final exams will take place in November 2016.
