TRAINING

HOLLYWOOD

The Academy’s Professional Training Program, or FIGHT CLASS, offers cinematic swordplay and hand-to-hand combat training for actors, stunt performers, and anyone interested in learning about movie fights.

​All weapons are provided. Students begin at the basic level, covering safety and the primary techniques of hand to hand combat (slaps, punches, kicks, reactions), rolls and falls, cutlass, broadsword and quarterstaff. Intermediate and advanced students continue mastering and learning more advanced applications for all these weapons as well as moving on to double cutlass, single rapier, rapier and dagger, and smallsword. All students train in learning choreography and quickly bringing fights to the performance level. Students perform for camera regularly and receive feedback from the Swordmasters.

This program is meant for actors and stunt performers who are serious about perfecting their ability to perform fight scenes for the film industry through regular training. No experience is required to enter the professional program, but participation is by invitation only.

Classes and Workshops at ATC Hollywood are only available for adults. Must be 18+ to participate.
Please note that the Academy does not accept any form of certification as evidence of professional ability.
