The AAA offers the most unique and groundbreaking approaches to ‘acting & combat performance’ for the stage and screen anywhere in the world. Not only does the AAA teach the ‘L.I.E. Acting System’: the most original, usable, and safe approach to acting ever created, but the AAA is also constantly at the forefront of the continual development and evolution of the art form of Stage Combat. But this is not the tired old ‘tappy-tappy’ style of Stage Combat seen around the world. AAA Director and founder, Fight Master Kyle Rowling, blends his 30+yrs of real life martial arts experience with his extensive acting training and ‘on-set experience’ to create fight scenes that are not only martially sound, whether they are historically accurate or pure fantasy, but also full of emotional depth and character development.

The Action Acting Academy offers drop-in Casual Classes that focus on fun, safe illusions of violence and combat for theatre and film.

The AAA's Casual Classes teach a diverse mixture of weapons and fighting styles, both historic and fantasy based. From 17th Century Rapier and Dagger to modern Close Quarters Knife fighting and everything in between, the AAA work to translate genuine martial techniques into safe theatrical versions of the real thing. 

AAA Casual Classes place an emphasis on fun, fitness, partnership and good technique. It is the perfect way to try stage combat for the first time or to keep your current skills sharp.

The Action Acting Academy is proud to present a series of one off Master Classes throughout the year. These classes are generally one to two day events and cover a diverse range of subjects that are all relevant to the modern Stage Combatant/Actor. Master Classes are open for everyone and are sometimes taught by special Guest-Instructors from around the world, giving you the opportunity to draw on a wide range of techniques, philosophies and skills. 

Spear, Long Knife & Tomahawk, Fighting for Film, and unusual weapons not found in our normal curriculum such as Asian Staff, Bullwhip and Found weapons (tables, chairs, phone books, watering cans etc) make up the bulk of our Master Classes. 

Some Master Classes are based around combat technique while others focus more strongly on the performance and realism side of fighting. But all are conducted with safety, fun and learning as our major goals.

The AAA can also bring a Master Class to you. If you have a group or organization and you want to try something a little different to the standard team-building courses on offer, please contact us and we will structure a Special Event Master Class to meet your specific needs.​
