Welcome to “Art of Combat”. What I share with you on this site is an evolution of how I define myself. Art of Combat offers three core functions… “Fight Choreography”; “Stunt/Fight Performance”; “Tactical Combat Training”.
I am a filmmaker… beyond the camera, how I define myself is through my training. The Art of Combat for me is something pure and deeply rooted in my being. I take what I do both on the screen and in real life very seriously. I see artistic beauty in the fight. I respect the lethality of its design. I have the ability to transfer the raw power and rage of true combat onto the screen, and for those I train… I offer something even greater.
Combat styles in film take on many forms, from “dance-like routines” to “raw and down right bloody carnage”.
When I create a fight for a scene, I match it to both the film and the actors. There is subtext within a fight, and how a person moves, what weapons (if any) or how they utilize their environment all rely on telling the story of this character and enhancing the story. I give a personality to each technique and a purpose to every attack or defense. The style of film and personality and physical talents of the character control the type of fight I develop.
