Combat is a staple of both cosplay and fan films, but so often, the fighting and fight scenes we see aren't as good as we'd like them to be. In this interactive, hands-on workshop, we'll simulate cosplay and performance combat environments and run through some simple techniques for making your fighting awesome. We'll talk about things like:

- Martial mentality
- Fighting the man, not the sword
