Announcing East Coast Combative Arts at Ro-Con!

We are pleased to announce that East Coast Combative Arts will be coming to Ro-Con to give presentations on authentic melee combat techniques. We saw these guys at 9Pi-Con this past summer, and they we're fantastic. Be sure to check them out!

From their Facebook page:
East Coast Combative Arts is a group of individuals dedicated to providing thrilling fight choreography for stage and screen as well as researched education on historical martial arts and fighting techniques. Each member holds several areas of expertise that may be used for the benefit of any film, play, or production company. Further more, our education programs are carefully designed to teach audiences on the fighting styles of ancient cultures not seen in the movies.

Our members have had lifelong passions in martial arts, theater, film, and production. For over ten years our members have worked in combat related programs and performances at Renaissance Faires, playhouses, film, and educational settings. Some highlights include having performed fight scenes for Stan Lee, and most recently performed with Game of Thrones' The Mountain, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson. Furthermore, our organization has ties with Art of Combat and academic training in performance and historical education from The University of Connecticut, and Central Connecticut State University.

Every event has a different budget, different budgets mean different cost, so each program is negotiated on a case by case basis to make sure you are getting what you need. East Coast Combative Arts is sure to bring realistic, yet engaging choreography and enriching educational programs wherever they are needed. Resumes and references are available upon request! So have a look at some of our recent projects!
