"And They Fight..." was created by Gregory Hoffman to provide a comprehensive educational training material to support all Instructors of Theatrical Combat as well as a comprehensive review for all students of this art form. It also serves as a fundamental training reference for the Instructors of Dueling Arts International - a company offering training to Actors, Teachers, and Theatrical Fight Directors worldwide.
All-Inclusive Instructional Experience
Originally founded by Gregory Hoffman in 1995, Dueling Arts International focuses on providing an all-inclusive, intensive, and dramatically integrated theatrical combat training experience. In his teaching, Hoffman employs methods heavily influenced by his lifelong dedication to the practice of Tai Chi Chu'an, as well as an academic background in the study of movement analysis and fine art. By incorporating his own personal methodology, Gregory has created a tradition of training that is recognized around the world.
