Rose Academy of Armes

Fight Master Ian Rose has an immeasurable passion for teaching and for stage combat. He has traditionally taught a live Monday night class in his hometown of Philadelphia, PA for the past several years. 

With the current closures resultant of COVID-19 protocols, live classes have been suspended and he's teaming up with Humble Warrior Movement Arts to go VIRTUAL!

Every Monday Night & Tuesday Afternoon join Fight Master Ian Rose for VIRTUAL Stage Combat Classes!

Consideration will be given of how to approach the work in your home and without theatrical weapons should you not have access to them.

He'll also endeavor to give individualized feedback to students throughout the class and answer your questions. 



Rapier & Dagger

The rapier, the gentlemen’s sword of the late 1500’s to late 1600’s, will be taught in combination with a long parrying dagger.  Although some of the work will be historical in nature, in that we will explore the styles of Capo Ferro, Fabris, Giganti and others, the work will chiefly be Rapier & Dagger in stage combat.  Whether you are set to play Tybalt or Milady, skills with the Rapier & Dagger are key skills for any actor.   All that the actor needs to know about fighting with these weapons on stage will be examined.  

This class qualifies for SAFD certification hours and will culminate in the presentation of performed choreography in March 2021.
