A psychologically astute fight director…
-Austin Pendleton

Fights should excite an audience, define a character and move a plot. Violence can enhance your production.  For twenty five years Jared has choreographed fights Off-Broadway, Nationally, in London and Sydney.

Check out Jared Kirby’s Fight Direction Resume or IMDB for past projects.

Any actor would be blessed to have Jared helping them delve in to the moments when their character becomes involved with violent action, and any director will benefit from his knowledge not just of martial concepts, but of what makes for strong, interesting choices.
-Kevin Inouye of Fight Designer LLC

He’s like the candy man, but his treats are swords, guns, knives, and blood packs.
-Susane Lee, Director & Asst. Artistic Director of Hudson Warehouse
