Recent whip, gun and lasso workshops have been for 40 members of the international press for the latest Kingsman Film " The Golden Circle" and the DVD launch of " The Magnificent Seven", one to one training for actors and stuntmen and an Indiana Jones team builder for O2 in a forest. You can see us in action here where we taught the extraordinary charity fundraiser Joel Hicks a whole range of performance skills in just one day.
In this next video we had the pleasure of working at the UK's most authentic Western town Laredo in Kent teaching all the skills seen in the film The Magnificent Seven (including the machine gun!)
Being taught by award winning international circus performers who really know how to teach is the best way to learn.
Peter was a senior lecturer in Sport and Recreation for twenty years before he ran away to the circus, his unique teaching style has been described as " dynamic, scary, engaging, enthusiastic and entertaining " ,
He was rubbish to start with but persevered to become a European and International Western Skills Performance Champion, a UK and European Whip Grand Master and one of only three certified European Western Arts Club "Master Trainers"
That struggle gave him empathy with students and his award winning teaching skills gave him the tools to develop a unique style that works with all ages and abilities, and deliver world class training using quality whips and props.
