About Us

The British Academy of Stage & Screen Combat is respected, both nationally and internationally, as the leading provider of professional level stage combat training. 

All BASSC teachers have undergone a rigorous training programme and the examining members of the BASSC are highly qualified, experienced professionals with a tradition of working in theatre productions across the country including the Royal National Theatre, the RSC and the West End, television and film productions such as ALEXANDER, TROY, STARDUST, CLOSER, THE LAST LEGION, THE GOLDEN COMPASS, THE DARK KNIGHT and SHERLOCK HOLMES.

The BASSC have teachers in the UK, Europe and the USA and run regular workshops for beginner and experienced actor/combatants including THE LION and THE EMPIRE weekend workshops and our flagship two week intensive course the BRITISH NATIONAL STAGE COMBAT WORKSHOP.

The emphasis in our teaching is always placed on Safety as well as physical commitment to the action, storytelling and Acting the Fight.  People who have trained with the BASSC have gone on to appear as action performers in feature fim productions including PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN 4, HAMMER OF THE GODS and IRONCLAD.
