Our approach to fight choreography and the design of movie action scenes is rooted in professionalism and a deep understanding of various combat disciplines.


With a diverse skill set that includes being a black belt in Krav Maga, a registered and licensed firearms instructor, a certified MMA coach, a boxer, a BJJ coach, and a bladed weapons specialist, a wealth of knowledge and expertise is brought to the table. My experience as an actress, having performed in TV series and stage shows, as well as being an ex-professional dancer, allows me to infuse each fight scene with a powerful blend of theatrics and drama.


In our fight choreography work, we prioritize safety and authenticity. We carefully analyze the script, characters, and story context to design fight sequences that engage and captivate audiences while maintaining the integrity of the narrative.


For example, in a recent project, we choreographed a fight involving one female CIA agent against four male terrorists.  Drawing from my MMA coaching background, I incorporated a mix of martial arts techniques, utilizing Krav Maga for hand-to-hand combat and my bladed weapons expertise to add intensity and danger to the scene. Through meticulous planning and rehearsal, we ensured that every move was executed correctly, emphasizing the characters' strengths and vulnerabilities to create a truly immersive experience for the viewers.



An additional advantage is that my background and expertise enables me not only to choreograph fight scenes but also to perform them or to train others to execute the scene.


It is essential to understand the intricacies of each role, deliver authentic performances, and provide guidance and direction to actors and stunt performers. With my experience as an ex-SAGF gymnastics coach and judge at the provincial level, I have a keen eye for precision and physicality, ensuring that every movement is executed with finesse and accuracy. Our mission is to help you to deliver a visually stunning, emotionally charged, and professionally executed action fight scenes that will leave a lasting impact on your audience.
