Using single-handed weapons, this number system will allow students to quickly and easily create a vocabulary to get ready for performance. This system includes strikes and parries that can be altered and stylized to look European, Asian, or Alien depending on the creativity. They also teach the swipe to the head, how to kill an opponent in such a way that the audience cringes, and how to do all of this safely while selling it to the camera. Includes several pre-choreographed fights that demonstrate how all of these techniques work into a full-speed battle.
