Spring Combat Workshop
Spring Combat Workshop
All aboard with Swashbuckling Cornwall for a weekend of dramatic combat workshops in Falmouth.
On the second day we will be venturing aboard the Spirit of Falmouth, a 91ft gaff-rigged traditional pilot schooner, to unleash your inner swashbuckler!
On shore we will be covering a variety of styles and weapons including unarmed, broadsword and single sword, including, of course, the cutlass!
We will then go aboard ship to put your skills into practice, whilst also learning about working in unusual spaces, around hazards and how not to fall in.
The course is open to those over 18. Beginners welcome.

Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th March
10:00 - 16:00

Why study dramatic combat?
There are many reasons to study stage combat; it helps to create a stronger narrative, increases awareness of safety and provides increased marketability & employability. Oh, and it’s really good fun!
What is dramatic combat?
Stage or dramatic combat is simply the dramatisation of both unarmed & armed fights for theatre or film. The modern style has its roots back in the 1500s, although the concept of staged fights is much older. Today styles are based on historic manuals with some adaptations to make them safe and look breathtaking.
