Here is a small glimpse of what you can expect for a stage combat workship…


Join nationally recognized stage combat instructor Orion Couling and explore the theatrical style featured in the films we love. This class is an introduction to the art of stage combat in single sword. The emphasis will be on partnering, communication, storytelling, easy choreography and most of all…dorktastic fun! Use state of the art professional grade props and walk away with a lightsaber (ie: single sword) initiate certification.

This class requires

  1. A fun but focused mind
  2. Athletic attire
  3. Props will be provided, but you may bring your own light saber props. Please note that Orion will inspect them before we start
  4. Commitment. For the technique to be safe you’ll need to be present and work hard at all of the workshop.
  5. Ages 10 and up
