Action Acting

Durban Actors Studio will host the first ever Action Acting Masterclass in KZN, facilitated by expert combat coach, Salim Badat.

This is a class designed to teach actors the skills used in combat and weapons choreography. During this masterclass, actors will be introduced to the Blitz fighting system, which was created specifically for movie fight choreography. This constantly evolving system is spectacular enough to grab an audience’s attention and visually effective to be believable.

The facilitator, Salim Badat is a Jeet Kune Do, Ving Tsun, FMA, HB- Bladetech, and Filipino Boxing (Panuntukan) coach. He has years of experience with personal discipline, professional ethics and coaching mastery under world-renowned leadership. Salim is the only second-generation student of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do in South Africa, under the late Richard Bustillo.  

Actors need the skills to convincingly deliver scenes that require combat or weapons handling. This Masterclass is perfect for actors who want to learn the correct form to execute fight scenes with maximum effect, ensure safety in their scenes and stand out from the crowd in auditions and meeting with Directors.
