The Screen Combat Qualification That Counts

This is the Warrior Masterclass: The UK's leading screen combat course recognised by the UK Film & TV Industry. Created by some of the UK's leading British Stunt Register Stunt Co-ordinators and Stunt Performers, it can hone you into becoming a highly trained and versatile screen action combat performer and stunt performer. 

Whether you’re looking to add to your skill set as a stuntman, stuntwoman, performer, actor, supporting artist, new to the industry, or have a passion for movies and want to learn to fight like your screen action heroes, the Warrior Masterclass standard is highly respected in the industry.  

The Four Phases

The Warrior Masterclasses consists of four intense and enjoyable training phases finishing with a one day advanced screen combatant test. Each phase is three days long and set approx. 6 weeks apart. The entire course can take between 8-12 months to complete and you need to complete each phase in succession. 

The course takes you from learning the basics of screen combat and one-on-one choreography, through to battlefield clash scenarios and large multi-weapon combat groups in both modern and ancient styles.  

You’ll learn to use over 16 different weapons and portray a diverse range of characters, from hardened knights and deadly ninjas, to swashbuckling pirates and marauding vikings.


Industry Recognised 

The Warrior Masterclass is recognised in the industry by leading Production Companies, Directors, Producers, Stunt Co-ordinators, 1st, 2nd, 3rd Assistant Directors and Industry Health & Safety. 

You will be taught by UK leading BSR Stunt Co-ordinators, Stunt Performers and Screen Combatants having co-ordinated and performed combat, stunts and screen action on some of the biggest productions of all time.

If you're an aspiring actor, stuntman or stuntwoman or a supporting artist, the Warrior Masterclass will teach you how to perform combat for screen, in order to expand your current skill set.
