We are The Fake Fighting Company!

Who we are?

The Fake Fighting Company (FFC) was created by Aaron Preusse to provide quality training and fight direction for the Twin Cities Theatre and Film industry. The FFC is dedicated to making you better, smarter and safer through the art of stage combat. Our goal is to have our students and actors perform each technique safely and believably, while gaining respect for themselves, the art form and their fellow partners.

We also like teaching people how to fake hit each other.


We are here to make you:





"Life, as in art, is a contest of generosity."
