  • “fake-fight” with or without any type of sword, knife, stick or “found object” in a safe, realistic, theatrical fashion.
  • act as Fight Captain for any theatrical production;
  • understand the differences between fighting for stage and fighting for film, and perform at an advanced level in any medium; and
