Advanced (Level 3)
As students’ progress, teachers should aim to develop their existing skills and push them towards an advanced level of technique and performance in a range of fighting systems. The objective should be to produce a fully rounded and adaptable fight performer, able to work with a wide range of weapon systems and performance styles. Secondly, to produce performers with a sufficient level of technical mastery, control and understanding that they would be of great value to fight directors in the profession when working with less able actors or in the role of fight captain or featured fight performer.
Once a student has achieved Distinctions in 4 weapon systems they can be classified as an Advanced BADC Actor Combatant.
One of those weapons must be Advanced Unarmed.
Certification consolidations are recorded in their TCR.
All individual weapon qualifications are valid for 4 years.
