I will be travelling to Florida for the second time in two months to teach a Skills Proficiency Test class at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. The class will serve as an opportunity for those taking coursework in stage combat at UCF to complete an SPT and receive recognition with the SAFD. I got the invite from fellow Rat Pack Productions member and professor of stage combat at UCF, Robert Aronowitz. Students have spent the semester thus far studying both unarmed and single sword and will be given the opportunity to test in both if desired. Fight Master Scot Mann is scheduled to adjudicate.


All 10 students participating in the class and the SAFD Skills Proficiency Test passed. Six received a Recommended Pass, the highest distinction available at this level, from the adjudicator.
