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.
WHERE: Battery Dance Company, 380 Broadway (2 blocks south of Canal), NYC unless otherwise noted.
COST: $75 (late registration $100).
The quarter-staff has been a common weapon for self defense. While often associated with the lower classes, knights and men-at-arms were expected to be proficient in its use. This versatile weapon allows for combat in various ranges and delivers powerful blows and thrusts. The class will focus on the fundamental footwork, strikes and parries from various distances for one of the most universal weapons. In the words of a 16th century gentleman the “staff is most commonly the best weapon of all other!”
