Teaching at CombatCon: Where History and Fantasy Meet! in Las Vegas, NV.

The times that were, the times that are, and the times that may be… …and how to kick butt in all of them! Where can you find fans of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Steampunk, Dark Fantasy, Cosplay, Comics, The Golden Age of Piracy, and Speculative Fiction? Ok, a lot of places — BUT, where can you find them armed with swords, maces, clubs, spears, knives, and other weapons of the West? Why, at CombatCon, of course! Imagine a place where fans of all genres can rub elbows with armed and armored martial artists, and try their hand at cracking a whip, throwing a dagger, felling an opponent with a two-handed sword, or defeating the zombie horde with a crowbar and a shovel. Yes folks, that place exists — and it’s called CombatCon: Where History and Fantasy Meet! Not to mention the opportunity to hang with old friends and make some new ones. And where else could all this happen besides Las Vegas, one of the most action-packed vacation destinations in the US?

Art of Combat Fight Directing and Combat for Stage & Screen Intensive in New York City.

Participants from all over the US and abroad will come together in New York City to train for one intensive week with the Art of Combat company in the skills needed to create extraordinary fights for stage and screen.  Classes (taught by Jared Kirby, John Lennox and Kyle Rowling) will include stage combat, historical fencing, acting the fight, finding your angles and much more. The workshop will culminate in a show that will be performed in New York City.

This workshop is an immersion into the AoC company which has been actively transferring historical combat styles to stage and film for over a decade. Members are trained in historical combat styles and learn how to make them safe and replicable for stage and screen. Our training and expertise has enhanced theatre, film and TV with authentic and realistic combat sequences all around the world.

The week is structured so that you will get the most out of it.  You can register at one of three levels, based on your skill level and what you want to learn: “Combatant”, “On Track” or “Fight Director”.

Great review of the 2012 AoC NYC Intensive by Rachel Strayer who participated in the workshop.
