Welcome to our new fundamentals training! The Fundamental Workshops focus on the Techniques & Reactions and the Choreography & Performance elements of Screen Combat. Our fundamental training is the perfect starting point for anyone wanting to step into the world of screen combat and level up their skills.
You can attend the Fundamentals in any combination of combat styles and order that suits you! If you have any questions please take a look at our FAQs here.
TECHNIQUES & REACTIONS
The Fundamental Techniques & Reactions Workshops are perfect for those who are looking to get to grips with Screen Combat as well as any advanced performers looking to strip things back. Over the course of the day you will learn all the vital techniques needed in order to build a solid foundation in Screen Combat.
The techniques you will learn will range from stance & footwork to hits & falls. Depending on the specified weapon system these techniques may vary. This Fundamental workshop will challenge you in ways you did not expect, trust us!
CHOREOGRAPHY & PERFORMANCE
It's time to dive into the choreography and performance elements of Screen Combat.
In this Fundamental Workshop, the Instructors will work with you on intricate choreography and your performance for the camera. You will also cover all the aspects needed when working professionally on set.
The Technique & Reactions Workshop and the Choreography & Performance Workshop combined are the perfect precursors to our most popular course - the Screen Combat Intensive.

FEATURED FUNDAMENTAL WORKSHOPS
All the Fundamental Workshops are either Unarmed or Weapons. Under both categories, you will find Techniques & Reactions and Choreography & Performance workshops. This division allows you the chance to choose which elements of Screen Combat you wish to focus on.
You do not have to do these workshops in any specific order!!
Do you need to be trained to do a course?All those new to Screen or Stage Combat will need to attend both a 'Techniques & Reactions' and a 'Choreography & Performance' Fundamental Workshop! These sessions are crucial to start with, as the Screen Combat Intensives will jump straight into advanced choreography. You can attend the Fundamentals in any order and in any combination of weapon systems you like. Our courses are open to all abilities however the Screen Combat Intensives are for our more experienced fighters. In all T3 training, 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 host a variety of different courses from the Fundamental Workshops to the Screen Combat Intensives. By attending multiple different sessions, you will learn 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! If you are unsure whether you should attend the Fundamentals before a Screen Combat Intensive, please take our interactive Training History Questionnaire to find out!!
Do I have to attend both a 'Techniques & Reactions' and a 'Choreography & Performance' Fundamental Workshops?You can mix and match as you please!! You are welcome to attend any combination of Fundamental Workshops. These workshops are provided in either Unarmed or Weapons so that you pick and choose your training to best suit you. If you feel you need more work on your unarmed technique but wish to learn more about performing a choreographed fight using a weapon, then go for it! The Fundamental Workshops are designed to give participants a clear understanding of Screen Combat and all that it requires from a performer. While simultaneously teaching them the basic techniques needed to bring an epic fight to life on screen. The Fundamentals are not to be missed if you want to get the best possible footage during your Screen Combat Intensive.
