From slaps and hair pulls to kicking and punching, unarmed moves are the most common stage combat techniques actors are likely to come across, alongside knife work.

Our Stage Combat - An Introduction course is suitable for complete beginners and ideal for anyone interested in theatre, musical theatre, opera or film. It will provide you with an excellent foundation to cope with being cast in many roles requiring fights.

Stage Combat - An Introduction Course Content

You will build a foundation in many stage combat techniques, enhancing your acting skill set and teaching techniques to keep you safe in your theatrical fights:

  • Introduction to fundamental stage combat techniques in unarmed and knife work
  • Application of those techniques through performing choreographed fights

This is a City Academy course in association with Independent Drama. Your acting course hours will count towards the recognised academy hours needed for a professional Fight CV.

The hours taught also go towards more advanced accreditation courses with the British Academy of Stage & Screen combat.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
