This stage combat class will begin with simple unarmed combat then move on to swords and other weapons, learning the basic footwork, six basic parries and a range of blade attacks, disengages, coupes and avoids. The techniques encourage students to work as a ‘team’, interact with a solid ‘buddy system’ to keep each other safe on stage and enhances acting and focus.
