THE UPPERCUT METHOD 

We combine the safe practices of traditional stage combat with the creative approaches of the stunt industry.

 

Not only do we cover practice of techniques, we also ensure our students understand the principals and mechanics of dramatic combat giving them the tools to build their own works of violence from the offset. 

We believe there is no right or wrong ! Just believable and safe.

We have also done away with the outdated certificate system and instead introduced a multi media approach. 

 

We help our students to understand what works on film, we shoot the work and make it available for them to use as an accurate showcase of their abilities at the time. 

All of our instructors actively work in the industry.

We are actors, fighters, choreographers and teachers, whether on film, television or performing live events such as immersive theatre or live stunt shows.

Our instructors are up to date with what is happening in the industry. 

Dramatic violence is not something to complete.

 It’s a constantly adapting creative movement system that requires practice, involvement and influence from all over.
