Our Approach to a Sword Fighting Show

Most shows that have sword fighting in them are choreographed like a dance. This works for many performances and shows, but the downside is that every show with that choreography will be the same.  When we set out over 20 years ago to make a show, we wanted every show to be different. The solution was to train in real medieval combat and tweak that training into a style that we could easily teach.  This way, no matter the skill level of the members they could engage in a fight that looked authentic but with a flare of drama.
