Second Sunday Seminars Series

This series is designed to provide intensive four-hour training sessions for Stage & Screen Combat. The subject matter will vary from month to month. Sometimes we will train in the use of specific weapons. Other times the sessions will cover acting-based topics as they specifically relate to violence on stage or screen.

A minimum number of participants is required to make certain the seminar happens so make sure to sign up early.  You must register by the end of the preceding month for the discounted price.

WHERE: will vary but typically at:
-Battery Dance Company, 380 Broadway (2 blocks south of Canal), Ripley Grier Studios at 520 8th Ave. NYC or The Alchemical Studios, 104 W. 14th St. on the 3rd Floor
TIME: 4 hour blocks (around 12pm-4pm).
COST: Typically $75 (late registration $100) but special seminars will have varying cost.

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.

At 2:30pm, 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.

At 3:30pm 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.

From 4:30-6:30pm, 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.
