We at Neutral Chaos Combat want to clearly state that we oppose racism and oppression of any kind. We condemn the violence against Black Americans by the police - violence and oppression that has afflicted the lives of countless Black people for centuries.
We acknowledge the systemic racism that exists in our society and the social and economic benefits afforded to white people; and our own privilege of being able to teach what we are passionate about in our studio. We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate for the support of you, our students, over the years to make our dream of offering accessible stage combat classes a possibility in NYC and elsewhere across the country.
We have always made an effort to create affordable courses for the arts community in a space that does not tolerate discrimination of any kind. We would like to expand on this now to offer free admission to the Trapped Inside Workshop (Coupon Code: BLM) for all Black professionals in our industry. We understand that this does not make up for the pain and loss suffered by those who face oppression in our country every day, nor do we think our job is done.
To that end, we are going to change the format of our Friday Night Masterclass on June 5th to be a Town Hall Meeting that is focused around racial equity in our industry and in our studio. It will be a facilitated discussion the provides a platform to engage in this national conversation.
Along with this discussion, Neutral Chaos will be assembling an Anti-Racism Committee that addresses the implicit bias and lack of representation in the stage combat community which fails to reflect the diversity of our beautiful city.
To those who are suffering and calling for action - we stand with you. We have a lot of work ahead of us and we are committed to make this change happen at an organizational level for our community in this moment and beyond. Be safe, be strong, and act with compassion.
Featuring some of our most respected and talented stage combat and stunt colleagues stunts from across the globe, mark your calendars for June 12th-14th, 2020, and join us for a weekend chock-full with instruction to expand your knowledge-base and refine your skillset!

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.
