Dramatic Combat Finland is the biggest professional group in Finland providing education in the field of dramatic violence and stunt work

on stage or in film.

We hone our craft in collaboration with the Nordic Stage Fight Society, which is an umbrella organization of stage combat in the northern countries, and with many other societies from all over the world.

We have been organizing workshops in dramatic violence and offering our choreographic and performing services in Finland since 2007.
