Hello,

Over the last few years many people have inquired about joining the Art of Combat or studying historical combat for stage and screen. Therefore, we have created a one week intensive in the skills needed to create extraordinary fights for stage and screen. It will be held in New York City August 9th – 15th, 2009 and classes (taught by Jared Kirby and John Lennox) will include stage combat, historical fencing, acting the fight, finding your angles and much more. The workshop will culminate in a show to be performed in New York City.

More basic information is below and the website will be up soon with a sample schedule and more details.

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 as well as standard combat styles for stage and screen. Our training and expertise has enhanced theatre, film and TV with authentic and realistic combat sequences all around the world.

We need to get an idea of how many people plan to attend in order to secure the proper sized venue so please email me in the next few weeks if you would like to participate or if you have any questions.

Take care,
Jared Kirby

Art of Combat Fight Directing Workshop

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”.

For participants with no previous experience or those with experience who want an introduction to the Art of Combat organization you can register at the “Combatant” level. You will learn the basic elements of AoC combat for stage and screen. You will take classes in a variety of subjects and rehearse in scenes choreographed by the Fight Directors. There will also be rehearsal every day for a show you will perform in, in New York City that Fri/Sat night.

For those already at the Combatant level and who are starting to work towards becoming a Fight Director you can register at the “On Track” level. There will be opportunities for you to work as an Authorized Combat Instructor, Fight Captain and/or Asst. Fight Director depending on what you need. Your skills will be honed by working the scenes, culminating in the show to be performed in New York City.

Finally, if you have completed all your requirements and are ready to test for Fight Director you can register at the “Fight Director” level. This will prepare you for your exams as well as provide an environment to start your testing process. There will also be the opportunity for probationary FD’s to choreograph the Fri/Sat night show to fulfill one gig requirement (while getting a NYC credit).

This workshop is perfect for Stage and Screen actors as well as Opera Singers and Dance performers. Daily subject matter will draw from classical and contemporary material to study dramatic and comedic situations.

Hello,

New details have been posted on the website (http://www.artofcombat.org/Workshops/nyc.htm), including information on the location of the workshop and performances (The Access Theatre in NYC). The website will also soon have a list of stores and other places of interest in that area.

We have participants coming from across the US and the UK, as well as local New Yorkers. If you need assistance in securing accommodations, please let me know. NYC hotels can be pricey, so we suggest checking with friends and 'friends of friends' first. We may be able to help arrange for cheap housing with New Yorkers if needed, but this may just be a bed, sofa or air mattress (it's cheaper than a hotel).

The pre-registration deadline is fast approaching so make sure to get your registration in before June 19th and take advantage of the discounted rate! Simply visit the Registration page on the website.

Let me know if you have any questions and we'll see you in 2 months!

Take Care,
Jared Kirby

Hello,

We are proud to announce that Kyle Rowling (Star Wars II & III, Wanted) will be joining us and teaching at the upcoming AoC Workshop in NYC!

The Fight Directing & Stage Combat workshop is almost here, and it's going to be fantastic. We have participants traveling from across the US and local NYers ready to spend over 60 hours training, rehearsing and performing combat for stage and screen. There are a few spots left so if you are planning to attend you need to get your registration in asap.

http://www.artofcombat.org/Workshops/nyc.htm

Every day will include several different classes before breaking off to rehearse your fight scenes. Your hard work will be displayed in the performances Fri/Sat at the Access Theatre. We will tape the shows so you'll be able to get footage of your fights. I'm looking forward to an exciting show!

As always, if you have any questions please let me know at jaredkirby@hotmail.com

Take care,
Jared Kirby
