The art of armed and unarmed stage combat thrills actors and audiences alike the world over. This book details many of the foundational techniques used by actors studying stage combat and actor-movement disciplines. A variety of specific training exercises are described that connect the actor's imagination to a cohesive and meaningful actor-training curriculum – integrating stage combat with the actor's process of developing a fully embodied awareness of the physical life of the character. Developing physical awareness and dexterity is an essential component of an actor's training and rehearsal processes. Engagement, connection, the ability to listen and respond with authenticity, clarity, flexibility, intentionality, tactical response, variety are all helpful aspects for the actor studying combat movement. With practical exercises and expert advice, Stage Combat Arts allows the actor to further hone their emotional connection and extension, breath and voice, intention and focus, movement and freedom, and their ability to connect physically to imagery and text – disciplines that are at the foundation of actor-training – all through the art of combat movement.

William Hobbs has written his book as a guide to the inexperienced, so they are able to put their ideas into action more smoothly. The author's aim is to promote a more professional attitude and way of thinking about the task of performing and arranging fights that will demonstrate the range of exciting challenges which are open to directors, actors and fight arrangers alike. Both amateurs and professionals will find the problems and dangers of stage combat dealt with by the author. There is a fully illustrated glossary of strokes, a chapter on battle scenes and mass fighting, and an account of how to arrange comic and symbolic fights and how to stage unarmed fights. The author explains his system of notation for recording the moves of a fight, and includes a 6short chapter on weapons. The final chapter covers slapstick - a deceptively simple art. Forewords by Laurence Olivier and Roman Polanski. The author's first fight direction was for Franco Zefferelli's Romeo and Juliet at the Old Vic and he was Fight Director to Olivier's National Theatre Company for 9 years. He has worked at the National Theatre with Peter Hall, the RSC, the Royal Opera House and the ENO and on many productions in Europe. His many TV productions include Olivier's King Lear and the recent BBC series, Clarissa. Fight direction on feature films includes Cyrano de Bergerac, Dangerous Liaisons, Hamlet, The Duellists, Excalibur and many others. He has just finished shooting the film Rob Roy."

"Did you know that the martial arts include such former Western pursuits as dueling, gunfighting, and gladiatorial combat? Nearly 100 articles by scholars discuss specific martial arts, countries, and concepts such as religion and spiritual development common to martial arts traditions of the world. Definitions of unfamiliar terms and an index that notes the historical figures and classic texts dicussed within articles help to make this set a scholarly corrective in an area often informed by the movies."--"Outstanding Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2002.
