One of the most commonly used disciplines in stage combat, unarmed, is the art of physical storytelling without weapons. Learn to kick, punch, slap and fall convincingly and safely. Over this 10 week class, we will build foundational techniques that will serve as a basis for all other stage combat movement styles.

Short Form Classes (5 weeks)


This 5 week class will explore the basic concepts of close quarter fighting with a blade. Distance, time, and positioning will be the cornerstone of our studies. Attacks and counters, avoids and blocks will flash through your mind because distance equals time…and you don’t have much.
*No Prerequisite but prior Unarmed combat training is useful..

This 5 week class will delve into creating and learning short phrases of choreography quickly. As an ensemble, we will engage in exercises that facilitate the rapid building and performing of choreographed sequences. This class will be the first in a series building on this theme, culminating in choreographing scenes from extant dramatic literature. 
Prerequisites for this class are prior experience in armed and unarmed stage combat.
