Blood Effects can help evoke a visceral reaction in the audience. In this seminar we will cover:

-How to make blood packs for broad spatter or directional hits.
-How to “pop” them correctly (on the body & in the mouth).
-Palming packs and Proximity packs
-Various types of blood effects (liquid, powder & thick blood)
-Learn how to make home made blood: for clothing, washable, edible, to simulate brain matter and more
-Rigging blood for arterial sprays.
-Squibs for Gun shot wounds.

Come with a change of clothes (or two) and an old towel. We will use water for much of the seminar but at the end you will use some blood to pack up and Get Bloody!

Holiday Fight Gathering: Choose your Weapon

In the spirit of the Holidays, all NYCSS current and past students will come together to mix, mingle and fight! Bring your friends and loved ones to the second half where we’ll enjoy some snacks and hang out.

For the first hour, the floor will be open to work on whatever you want. There will be a variety of items available to train in so you can Choose your Weapon to work with.

For the second hour, we’ll have the Choose your Random Weapon Game! Two names will be drawn from a hat to determine who is fighting whom. Once a pair is determined, they will choose a weapon from a hat. Jared will choreograph a short fight for you to work up and perform. You may see Longsword vs. Gun, Smallsword vs. Unarmed, who knows!

This special gathering will be $25 for participating students in the first 2 hours.

For the last 2 hours, your friends and loved ones can join us for free (please RSVP to jared@jaredkirby.com by Nov. 30th). You’ll have the opportunity to perform your Random Weapon fight if you’d like and the audience can vote on the best one. Then we will hang out, nibble on snacks and the floor will be open for students to train further if they like.
