Stage Combat Courses

In addition to our main fencing work we also offer Stage combat courses for schools. Ive recently spent some time in London working with Ivor Benjamin.

Ivor is the Chair of Directors Guild of Great Britain and has been staging fights for over 30 years, and is familiar with a wide range of martial arts and weapons. His “Stagefight 101” workshops ran at the National Student Drama Festival from 1987-2007.

We have Ronin Traynor, resident fight director at the West Wing Arts Centre and a freelance choreographer, actor and fight performer running a Stage Combat course at the Oratory School in Goring Heath after Easter. He is also the secretary of the  British Academy of Stage and Screen Combat.
