Course synopsis:

The day will conclude with Kaitlin leading participants through a short routine that will be shown to the group. Please note that this one day workshop is not a performance certificate exam course, but rather an introduction and exploration of tried and tested Unarmed Stage Combat techniques.

Students attending this workshop do so at their own risk after consideration of their own physical fitness and physical ability. The course is intense and moves safely but swiftly. Please consider this when applying. Loose clothing and suitable footwear should be worn. For this course in particular, no jeans please as they inhibit much needed leg movement.

The APC offer a wide range of stage combat training, across all skill levels and a great number of weapon systems. All the APC's examiners are Equity Registered Fight Directors of high renown (including the current chairman and vice chairman of the Equity Register of Fight Directors).
