Stage & Screen Combat

For the past sixteen years Keith has been

drawing upon his unique skill set and expertise

to provide Spotlight-recognised stage combat courses, workshops, and in-house fight choreography for some

of the UK's top acting schools and Universities. 

With a strong emphasis on the importance

of health & safety in 21st century performance 

practice, and a breadth of knowledge in 

many different martial styles and weapon

systems, both historical and modern,

he works with actors and performers to

explore stage combat through logical

movements and physical awareness

Having previously trained and worked as a

professional actor himself, Keith collaborates

with performers and directors to create

a believable story through staged violence 

Alongside his regular teaching Keith also runs 

workshops and masterclasses across the UK,

offering classes in unarmed combat to

actors and performers aged 14 and over,

in addition to short-courses in swordplay

and weapon work for students aged and 18

and above.
