My name's Kevin McCurdy. I'm Vice Chairman of the Academy of Performance Combat and I co run the Cardiff Combat Summer workshop.
It's a non profit residential workshop that we've held here in Llantwit Major for the past 12 years and it immerses you into the world of stage combat in which you are trained for a full week by our Academy teachers and at the end of the week, you are graded by one of our Academy examiners, that's also an Equity registered Fight Director.
The grade that you get is Equity recognised.
We have different levels ranging from:
Level 1: Basic through to Honours. We also started up 'fighting for film' last year. (You can only do that if you've completed your Advanced training. Sorry).
Come and brush up, (or learn new ones),your stage combat skills, and make new friends and contacts.
All of our teachers are working in the profession either as Equity Fight Directors or Stage Combat tutors at Accredited Drama Schools, (or both).
The price for the week is £600 and it covers everything: full board (4 people sharing a dorm room), 3 meals a day, full training, insurance, exam fee, extra curricular workshops, full use of the castle grounds and facilities (swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, gym, castle grounds, internet.
Our participants come from all over, (UK, USA, Holland, Belgium), to name but a few.
If you're interested, give me a ring and have a look on our website.
