As unarmed fighting is the most common form of screen combat we will be focusing on this alone for the whole tier. We will cover a wide variety of moves and techniques, character types, fighting styles and martial arts as well as falls, rolls and reactions. 
We will look at choreography for both trained and untrained characters in one-on-one fights, one v many and group brawls. 
Throughout the levels students will improve their ability to sell the techniques appropriate to their character, to learn and perform choreography under pressure and camera awareness to be able to play to all kinds of set-ups first time. 
We recommend students wishing to train to the higher levels of unarmed do additional training for physical fitness and some martial arts if they do not currently have some experience.



This first level is suitable for all. Particularly for those with little or no training, but also anyone with more training and/or experience but wish to master the basics and understand the core fundamentals of the further levels. 
If you want to become an action actor, stunt performer or special action extra, this is the first step in your journey to mastering fighting for screen. 
Students will learn the basic foundations for good fight technique, performance and camera awareness with moves and styles specific to weapon work. 
Concentrating mainly on one-to-one choreography students will work with partners to learn and perform fight scenes, which will be recorded and replayed for notes and evaluation, then students can apply their notes and improve. 
The three days will culminate in a series of assessed performances on camera in which students will hear constructive feedback on their scenes and the areas they should work to improve. Students passing the assessment will be eligible to continue to the next 'Standard' level.
