It's a simple rule. When an action performer is not working, they are training to refine their known abilities and striving to learn new skills that will enhance their overall value in the industry.
7:00pm to 9:00pm
Team members are taught a system of Ninja-based martial arts skills that maintain an all encompassing approach to self protection utilizing striking, joint locks, throws, and many auxiliary tactics. Students refine these skills by performing complex choreographed sequences known as Chambara, the Japanese term for a unique genre of action film that glorified Japan’s Feudal era.
7:00pm to 9:00pm
Team members work on physical feats that enhance their ability to perform a variety of falls and acrobatics. Skills include - break falls, rolls, leaps, handsprings, and flips in both open environments and in conjunction with tables, chairs, barrels, and many other physical obstacles. Members often film short sequences focused on amplifying the physical action with camera technique.
7:00pm to 9:00pm
Team members are taught a powerful sword fighting system that helps them cultivate hand/eye coordination and enhanced intuition pertaining to the crucial art of timing and combative distancing. Members apply their combative skills in choreographed sequences known as Chambara, the Japanese term for a unique genre of action film that glorified Japan’s Feudal era.
10:00am to 12:00pm
Team members are exposed to stair falls, wire flying, low falls, jerk harness, breakaways, obstacle interaction, high falls, and many other stunt-related skills. This class also delves into working with practical effects such as squibs (bullet hits), air mortars, firearms, and pyrotechnics. Strong focus on performing for camera, set etiquette, and safety procedures.
1:00pm to 2:30pm
In this class we take children eight to twelve years old and teach them the fundamentals of fight choreography, acrobatics, wire work, falls, and many other stunt related skills. Although stunt jobs for children are not as common, starting performers at this age prepares them for a solid career as they grow and develop in the industry.
Rocky Mountain Stunts is not a revolving door training scenario where students attend a single “seminar” or “workshop” with the hope of entering the stunt business with limited training and knowledge. Although short term workshops can be fun and informative, it is almost impossible to obtain refined skills without the prolonged repetition of technique. Thus, we are looking for dedicated people to become part of our troupe rather than individuals with limited commitment who are only seeking to pad their resume with a deceptive "stunt training" credential. Thus, the equation is simple, long term training leads to a greater potential for retaining information, solidifying skills, and becoming a safe and valuable asset to any stunt coordinator looking to hire qualified personnel.
Both the STUNT PROGRAM and THEATRICAL FIGHTING PROGRAM are all about repetitive practice that develops muscle memory, aerial awareness, mental toughness, physical performance, and a plethora of other skills and abilities that condition the stunt actor to be the best they can be. This is accomplished by not only training in base skills, but putting that training into action in a fashion that creates a cohesive stunt sequence.
