  • Stage Combat Tutorials with Jenny Male

    I am happy to offer one-on-one online stage combat coaching in Unarmed, Knife, Single Sword, or Quarterstaff over Zoom. Participants will perform a fun warm-up, learn proper stances, footwork, and techniques, and gain knowledge in safety, partnering, and dynamic storytelling for the stage. (Recommended for 14 and older)

    Cost:
    $40 for 30 minute lesson
    $80 for 60 minute lesson
    **If two participants would like to be in class at the same time, then cost would be $60 for 30 minutes, and $120 for 60 minutes. 

    I will email clients suggestions for safe stand-in weapons as well as links to sites that have great training weapons such as rubber knives, wooden swords, and short staffs.  Whatever you choose should be presented at the first Zoom session, so I can inspect it for safety.
