We offer the highest quality of combat for stage and film. Art of Combat, inc. has bases in the United States, Canada, Australia, and around the world.


Art of Combat was created by a group of fight directors who had a vision for a new direction in stage combat. This concept was shared by other like-minded artists who then joined the company, allowing it to grow to become an international organization within the first five years of its existence. The focus for the company is on the art. It is our goal to work for perfection in the field and create safe staged violence that is not only historically accurate but also incredibly realistic. Scholarship is as important to our company as practical application. Research and exploration are a major aspect of our training and instruction for our members.


As we look to the future with this company, we see growth in chapters, membership and evolution of our craft. AoC is one of the few organizations that is international.
