Get ready to Rumble - AoC's Sydney Intensive:



Art of Combat (AoC) is one of the most prolific Stage Combat organizations in the world, and The Sydney Stage Combat School is Australia’s premiere Stage Combat teaching organization. Together they are offering the most exciting, action packed workshops available.


For the last five years AoC has offered a sell out performance-based workshop in New York. Together AoC and the SSCS are now offering this same experience in Australia for the first time! Whether you are an actor, a martial artist, or just someone with a love of action and swordplay, The AoC Intensive Performance Workshop has something to offer everyone. With over 70 hours of training, and culminating in a performance showcase, this workshop is one of the most unique, challenging and rewarding workshops in the world.


There is no certification at this workshop; just pure skills learning and the chance to put those skills into practice in a live performance situation.


Sydney Performance:

The classes and scene-work throughout the week culminate in a production performed for the public. This gives participants practical application of the skills they have learned along with an acting credit for the resume! Watch videos and see pictures of previous years' performances here.



Classes are taught by world-class instructors in the art. While we are still finalizing our instructor list, this year's Australian Intensive instructors will include internationally renowned Fight Directors: Kyle Rowling, Jared Kirby, and John Lennox, PhD.
