Be a More Effective Performer

You need technique that will be there for you on stage. That’s why it’s our mission to deliver the highest standard of stage combat instruction in an enjoyable, empowering environment. Our rigorous but compassionate training style challenges students physically, mentally and artistically, but also makes it a fun, engaging, and satisfying experience.

This training is much more than just a line on a resume; it will bring new clarity and strength to all areas of your performance. Your actions will be stronger, your awareness will improve, you’ll be a better partner and you’ll be more responsive to safety issues. Above all, you’ll be able to execute those critical moments of physical conflict safely and precisely, with maximum dramatic impact. Whether you’re looking for practical, portable skills or dream of someday becoming a fight director, we want to help you to make the very most of your time with us.
