The Saturday Showdown Workshop: Unarmed Combat
Hand to Hand
Unarmed conflict is a mainstay of performance: you see it in film and on screen, in every genre from slapstick comedy to dark drama to pure action. This workshop focuses on the basic techniques for performing unarmed combat for film and stage. Students will learn a variety of punches, slaps, kicks, grappling, etc., and how to perform in a safe and convincing manner, connecting the techniques with the script and the character.
► Accelerate your skills
This workshop is all about working fights based in closed, tight environments. We will be adapting a combination of military CQC and civilian self-defense techniques for choreography, then performing it at varying levels of spacing and intensity.
► Learn from a professional
Whether you are a neophyte or a veteran to the stage and screen, you can take advantage of Jyo’s position as a professional fight choreographer and director. His experience in both real-world and theatrical combat colors his insight into stage fighting, and soon you will learn new ways to approach any stage fight. You will also be learning about the demands of the stunt industry, how to manage working in a fast-paced production environment, and the value of combat in film/theatre.
