Description

 

The broadsword has captured the imagination of story tellers for centuries, often linked with the hero and their quest. From fantasy characters such as Aragorn (LotR) and half the cast of Game of Thrones, to theatre classics such as Macbeth and Robin Hood it's a weapon actors can expect to come across time and time again. The course will focus on the hand and a half sword allowing the single handed or two handed use. 

  

During the course students will learn the techniques required to perform an effective broadsword fight and will have the opportunity at the end of the course to take the British Academy of Stage & Screen Combat Fight Performance Test. The test fee is included in the course price. The course will also focus on acting skills and students will be expanding upon their knowledge of performing a dramatic fight scene with dialogue.
