Jul. 5 to Sep. 6
We're thrilled to announce our spring class lineup, including classes in Quarterstaff, Unarmed, Rapier & Dagger, and Knife. New to stage combat? Have a weapon you’ve yet to explore? Been away from combat for a bit and want to explore it again under a new lens? Then these are the classes for you. All classes meet at the aforementioned times. If you would like to participate in the SAFD Skills Proficiency Test in any weapon, we'll ask that you also set aside time for a dress rehearsal and the adjudication, both of which will happen outside the normal class times. *Due to rescheduling in response to COVID-19, we have not yet determined the exact date for the Skills Proficiency Test.
Cost for one weapon is $350*. Each additional weapon is $195.
Renewals are $125. SAFD Test Fees are not included in these costs. They are $50 for a test or $25 for a renewal plus $5 for each additional weapon.
*A minimum deposit of $50 per class is required to reserve your spot. Current union or SAFD members are eligible for a $25 discount. Please email us a screenshot of your current membership status to receive the coupon code.
If you have not taken an SAFD skills test prior to this Semester, we strongly recommend taking Unarmed as an introduction of the base skill set if at all possible.
If you have any questions whatsoever, please email email@example.com.
**UPDATE: Quarterstaff classes are currently SOLD OUT. If you are interested in a renewal or in being added to the waitlist for the current class, please send an email to the address above.
Neutral Chaos Classes
All our regularly scheduled classes meet once a week for a minimum of ten weeks. At course end, you'll have completed thirty hours of training in a weapon of your choosing, including performing choreography built to highlight your newfound skillset in the context of a scene.
We are also excited to be offering a series of visiting artist master classes once monthly. Connect with us on Facebook to learn more.
Skills Proficiency Testing and Renewals
Upon completion of 30 hours of training, you are eligible to test with the Society of American Fight Directors for proficiency in that weapon. This is a great way to highlight your training on your resumé and to meet other members of the performance community at large as it means testing in front of a Fight Master within the organization.
For those of you familiar with the Skills Proficiency Test process, we also offer renewals throughout the year. If you are in need of a renewal, and it is not currently amongst the weapons being offered in a given session, please send us an email and let us see how soon we can help you out.
