The BADC provides training for actors, dancers, opera singers, re-enactors, live role-players, and all those interested in understanding the techniques of safe and dramatically effective performance combat. BADC certifications are recognised by Equity, Spotlight, and internationally throughout the industry, with the BADC syllabus being taught in drama schools, universities, and training institutions across the U.K. The qualifications are intended for those aged 18+, with the exception of the Foundation level, which is open to those aged 16+.


The academy also trains future BADC teachers through its Apprentice Training Program.
