When I’m free, I run workshops in various weapon systems from our syllabus in the Academy of Performance Combat (APC:
This one is from my Basic unarmed course. In this course, I look at natural body reactions to danger, desensitisation of ‘the fear factor’, contact, playing of territory, reading body language. So the fight you’ll see is ‘natural’ and ‘dirty’ and safe. The players are one of the course participants, Rikki, and myself.
This ‘knife fight’ is from my Basic knife course. In this, I look at stance, guards, reflex action, timing, anatomy, cut and kill strikes and to teach the participants that with a knife, you can get hit from anywhere. The players involved are one of our APC apprentice teachers, Zoe Swansen-Graham, and myself.
