We were given an opportunity for the boys to participate in a free stage combat class with Culture Park. Stage combat is a specialized technique in theater designed to create the illusion of physical combat without causing harm to the performers. The boys learned hand-to-hand combat as well as sword fighting techniques.
This was a three week class in the space at the Zeiterian theater in New Bedford. The instruction was excellent and this may be the boy’s favorite activity from this year. I think their martial arts training helped them with some of their forms.
The end result was pretty impressive. The kids are looking forward to going back to learn more from the instructors at Culture Park.
