More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

Who We Are And What We Do

Squire was founded in September 2010 with a very simple aim; to introduce students of all ages to the exciting world of stage combat and physical performance. As a collection of martial artists and industry stunt performers we wanted to share our love of all things action with the next generation of performers. Through Squire Stage Combat and Squire Circus we have gone from strength to strength, working with schools, drama clubs and professional clients all over the country. 

We have developed a full range of workshops designed and delivered by industry professionals. We offer taster sessions in traditional stage combat both armed and unarmed, corporate team building based around Duelling Jedi or Lucha Wrestling as well as Circus Skills from our team at Squire Circus. Our work includes stunt shows and live fight performances, taster sessions/team building workshops, actor masterclasses, summer school activities and much more. With a diverse team of performers ranging from sword masters and pro wrestlers, acrobats and award winning jugglers we have something for everyone. 

All our instructors are professional performers working within film, TV and theatre and amongst us we have credits from The BBC, ITV, Royal Opera, Glyndebourne, National Theatre, WWE, Lucha Britannia, Marvel Studios and HBO.  We take great pride in having been an influence on hundreds of young actors, many of whom are now professionals in the own right and are always looking for the next challenge. 

Our workshops are fast, physical and fun. They can be enjoyed by everyone since the focus is activity rather than performance. No one is asked to get up on stage unless they want to and all the fights, falls and flailing are fake! After all “the first rule of fight club is NO ONE GETS HURT!”

Fight Club

The first rule of Fight club is no one gets hurt. The second rule of fight club is no one gets hurt! “Fight Club” is a workshop designed for school enrichment days and team building events. No focus on drama texts, no sweat drenched workouts just the chance to try your hand at the fun that is stage combat with guidance from a trained professional.

Ever wondered how film makers make their fights just so realistic? Or how stunt people manage to get up time and time again after taking brutal looking falls? Then this is the workshop for you. Stage combat is fun. It is a non competitive, incredibly safe and sociable physical activity. The work encourages people to work together in teams, building trust and leadership skills. As well as communication and creative thinking.

Fight Club has a big emphasis of fun. Introducing students to the fundamentals of stage combat in a short snappy crash course. Games and activities help students understand the basic principals of combat while also getting them working physically with each other.

The students are taught all the most fun and gory techniques such as safe kicks to the groin, eye gouges, strangles and good old fashioned upper cuts. The session concludes with a talk from a trained stunt professional and an open Q&A covering body burns, car crashes, stair falls and the exciting world of stage combat and stunts.
