STAGE COMBAT CLASS – KNIFE BASICS hosted by the Bard & Bourbon Theatre Company
A 5-week Monday night workshop in theatrical knife fighting technique taught by Christopher Elst, Certified Teacher with the Society of American Fight Directors (SAFD) and Associate Instructor with Dueling Arts International (DAI).
Knife fights appear frequently onstage and in film and combine close weapons work with unarmed technique. This workshop will provide the foundational skills you need, along with a focus on safety, partnering, and storytelling. Plus it’s some of the most fun you can have while sober.
Completing this workshop will provide 15 hours toward Certification in Knife offered by The Society of American Fight Directors. If enough participants are interested in completing their certification, we will work with Chris to schedule a second 15 hour workshop later this year.
Classes are Mondays from 6:30-9:30, April 11, 18, 25, May 2, and 9 at Summerfield United Methodist Church, 728 E. Juneau Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53202
Cost is only $80, due by the start of the first class. Class size is limited so sign up early!
To sign up, email email@example.com with your name, address, and phone number. Payment can be made via paypal atPaypal.me/BardandBourbon/80 or by check or cash at the start of the first class. Checks should be made out to Katie Merriman.
