Stunt acting, from acting, body/head reactions, martial arts, staircase falls, fire burn, weapons, high falls... dozens of subjects, and hundreds of techniques, due to different levels of danger, all the above cannot be self-taught; it's better to be trained at stunt schools by certified instructors to be safe and effective on sets today.
All our actors (age 18+) are trained to do their own stunts in very safe ways in the past 2 decades to avoid unnecessary injuries & even deaths. Some production companies and stunt coordinators do request actors and stunt performers to be certified now.
Our School Offers Certificate Seminars, Group, Private And Intensive Private Lessons for New Actors, Experienced Ones And Celebrities.
We enjoy seeing our students performing in film and TV productions. We also have stunt coordinators, actors and stunt performers available for stage, film & TV projects
