The Complete Unarmed Stage Combat DVD Series is about step-by-step instruction in how to perform a fight scene. When fights are not staged properly, they look phony and can lead to accidents. Veteran fight instructors David Leong and J. Allen Suddeth have many Broadway and TV productions under their belts.
They will show you "hit without hurting". The DVDs are shot on a sound stage and, using multiple cameras, you'll learn the elements that go into performing a successful fight scene - and making it not only appear real but memorable. All three DVDs come with a downloadable guide for further instruction.
The first DVD is about The Basics - This covers relatively simple things like pushes, shoves slaps, punches and falls. Balance and body position are also stressed.
The second DVD is about The Fundamentals. Topics covered are wrist grab with break, duck, non-contact stomach punch, strangle hold, upper cut, crescent kick and much more.
The last DVD is about Techniques. Areas such as a choke from behind, elbow strike, right hook block, contact stomach punch, straight kick and kick to the stomach are demonstrated. Again, safety is emphasized in performing a fight scene.
