Knife & Bound Fighting

Many action films these days are calling for the ability to fight with a knife. This session will be divided into Basic and Advanced workshops.

Basic: This introduction will cover the fundamental techniques to become familiar with the knife. You’ll learn how to hold it, how to change grips fluidly, footwork, cuts, thrusts, parries, passes, pins and stripping the knife. The session will culminate in a short bit of choreography.

Advanced: If you have trained with me in Knife then enroll for the Advanced Choreo session instead. This will focus on Film work. In the first half you will be given an advanced sequence of choreography to work up to speed for the common camera angles with minimal rehearsal time to reset for each angle. In the second half we’ll change your knife to an improvised weapon for half the choreo before finishing up with a little Bound Fighting. With your hands tied up there are still many great ways to attack and defend yourself. Please be ready for a high paced experience with high expectations!

Note: This seminar will be held in Shetler Studios, 244 West 54th Street 12th floor, Room 1208.
