Knife Fighting Stage Combat.  Stage combat is the theatrical representation of violence performed during the course of a live performance that focuses on safety and repetition.  

This class will focus on knife fighting stage combat.  Students will learn to safely stage flight with knives.  Saturday’s workshop will introduce participants to basic movements, learning how to hold the weapon, and basic engagement.  Sunday’s workshop will move up to a more intermediate level with partner engagement, disarming, and more.  

A workshop in knife fighting stage combat for adults has never been taught in Teton County.  The class is offered at a low price of just $30 on Sat. or $50 for both days per person.  Participation in Saturday’s class is mandatory for participation in Sunday’s class.  We must have a minimum of 4 students to run this workshop, so get your friends to sign up with you!  No prior experience required. (Teens and adults only please.) 

Teaching the class will be Marius Hanford, local fight director who trained and worked New York City in multiple disciplines of eastern and western forms stage combat, as well as several martial arts styles (kung fu, aikido, hapkido, karate, judo, and jui jitsu).  He has also worked as a professional actor and teacher for companies such as The New York City Opera Co., The Lady Cavaliers, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and locally with Riot Act, Inc., Off Square, Teton County Library, and JHHS.
