Keith Wallis is a professional fight director for theatre and film. Over the past twelve years he has worked on a wide range of projects from small scale unarmed choreography and basic falls, to historical sword duels, group fights and mass battles. 

Based in the south west, Keith travels all over the UK providing fight choreography for theatre, opera and film production companies, as well as teaching both armed and unarmed stage combat at a number of British acting schools and institutions.

In 2018 Keith co-founded Master at Arms, a non profit organisation dedicated to the tuition of stage combat and the practice and continued development of fight choreography in the creative arts. You can find out more about the project by visiting: www.masteratarms.org
