Frequently asked questions

Do you need to be trained to do a course?

Our courses are open to all abilities. Whether you are an advanced fighter or a complete beginner, our industry recognised teachers will work with you to make sure you get the best out of your training with us. We feel it is very important to train in open sessions, as this is exactly what happens on set. Many performers get used to training with others with the same level of expertise (which is great) but are then thrown when given a performer with a different skill level or training. You never know who you will be performing with, so it is crucial to learn to be adaptable.

What if I am an advanced fighter?

Our courses are perfect for you! We keep every training session realistic, so we feel it is very important to start every session with a blank canvas. We do host a variety of different courses and occasionally host advanced only sessions, but it is very important to train openly with performers that have different abilities to you. You will never know who you will be paired with on a job and sometimes something as simple as a partner can be all it takes to throw the most competent combatant.

Are your courses certfied?

Performers nowadays have become fixated on getting certificates. But what do they really mean? In our professional career as an agency, we have never been asked to display performers certificates. This is not us saying they don't matter or they are not important. But one of the most asked requests in the modern industry is footage, showreels and high-quality pictures and this is exactly what we offer! The T3 version of a certificate is professionally filmed footage. Something that actually proves if you can fight or not.

What is your refund/exchange policy?

Our courses are very popular and sell out very quick. If you have paid and unable to attend, we are more than happy to move across your training session to another date, but please note if this is a Screen Combat Intensive there is a £15 service fee for exchanging of these courses. We also don't allow exchanging between different courses (i.e changing from a 3 day intensive to a 2 day intensive) these are separate courses, this is due to popularity and limited spaces. You are only allowed to exchange your course up to 14 days of the course starting. Anything after this date we will not be able to move your ticket or offer a credit note.
