We had a circuit warmup: 1.) Stage Combat falls on hard floors 2.) break, rolling break, and air break falls on the squishy mat 3.) Jenn’s Imfamous Yoga Warrior Sequence* 4.) pushups and dips on the low parallel bars (plank and pointer dog if you get tired)
Then we reviewed basic Unarmed Stage Combat in case you’re there to help with the kids on 7/22.
Then we reviewed the 4-person fight, amd choreographed the 2 1-on-1 fights. I’ll make them into a document and have it handy in class for you, but be sure you at the very least visualize the choreography in your minds so you can rehearse smoothly next week.
Next week please bring your PVC arsenal. Thanks and goodnight.

Trying to make up for the fact that we didn’t post at all from July 3rd (happy birthday, Mom!) till the 9th. And cuz video clips are cool.
Here’s a clip from our jumping and rolling practice from Advanced Stage Combat class last week: we were reviewing all our rolls as well as our jumps and spatial awareness, so we started jumping over each others’ log rolls:
…then Chris tried this before instruction, and we practiced actually rolling over our log rolls. Just so you know, this is on the “Advanced” tape of ninjutsu techniques I used in my earlier education. Just so you know. I like to tell my movement students when they do something really difficult, but only after they’ve done so.
We began work on our choroegraphed fights today, as well as revisited the fake throws and big stunt-like things on the squishy mat before we gave it to the MMA guys.
I will be posting our choreography here as a link to a document once we get them all squared away. For now, make sure you remember the choreography you created today. Practice it–at least visualize it in your mind, and we’ll work on it and the two-person fights next week.
Look again at your schedules and see if you’d like to join us for the Twelfth Night Basic Stage Combat Spectacular. July 22nd will be unarmed, and July 24th will be swords. If you come on the 24th, bring your PVC arsenal.
To close, here’s Nick’s air break fall on the squishy mat.
A group of approximately 20 10-12 year olds will be performing Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night in the first couple weeks of August, here in Denver. I will be their fight director.
We will be meeting in PE 111G on Auraria Campus Tuesday and Thursday, July 22nd and 24th. The 22nd we’ll be doing basic unarmed techniques from 12:30-2:30. On Thursday we’ll make our PVC swords and then learn basic sword techniques from 10am-12:30pm (then the Advanced class will meet). Anyone who has had my Stage Combat class is welcome to assist (make sure you contact me first and let me know).
