Have you ever seen a brilliant stage fight and thought “I wish I knew how to do that!”
Well now you can!
Theatre Bath is proud to present this two hour workshop with fight guru Tom Jordan from the Academy of Performance Combat (www.theapc.org.uk).
Across two hours, we will go over the basics of unarmed combat; including slaps, punches and hair pulling, we’ll look at physicality of the fighter, reaction and how best to work safely as a team with your opponent.
Please wear sensible clothing that you can move easily in and bring a bottle of water.

“His [Macduff’s] final fight with Macbeth was brilliantly choreographed and dramatic.”

“Credit must go to Tom Jordan’s fight choreography. The scene where Rodrigo receives a swift kick to the codpiece drew gasps and winces from the audience.”
– The Londonist on Veni Vidi’s Othello.
“The fight sequences, choreographed by Tom Jordan, using the very real swords were brilliant and very well executed by the actors”
