The fact that I get to learn about swordfighting is awesome. The fact that my teachers have worked on such favorites of mine like Hook, The Three Musketeers, and Army of Darkness is supremely awesome. The icing on the cake is that they've become family to me down here in Los Angeles.
Jan Bryant, Dan Speaker, and Kim Turney are instructors at the Academy of Theatrical Combat. They know their way around all kinds of sharp, pointy objects, and all kinds of bludgeoning goodies as well. Jan and Dan were hired to coordinate the fights on SyFy's The Almighty Thor. Check out the trailer below, you'll catch a glimpse of what they've done. You'll even see my friend Jason Medbury in a suit of armor, fighting Thor. Yay!
And yes, Thor gets to use an Uzi. I don't see a problem with that, do you? Almighty Thor premieres May 7th on the SyFy Channel. Weeee!
