The Texas Intensive (TXi) is an annual workshop focused on the art of stage and screen violence, specifically designed to provide students of all levels with an immersive, “intensive” experience. We are dedicated to professional skill training and attribute acquisition, and pride ourselves on providing practical combat education to create better, more dynamic performers. Every year over Labor Day weekend, we draw U.S. and international students to Houston to train with instructors and innovators from around the country in the ever-expanding art of combat performance.
TXi is a sanctioned regional workshop of the Society of American Fight Directors (SAFD), supported by the SAFD, the University of Houston and Houston Shakespeare Festival. We share the SAFD’s commitment to “promote safety and foster excellence” in the art form of stage combat.
Join SAFD fight masters, fight directors and certified teachers from around the country for cutting-edge training, whether you are seeking a foundational understanding, or acquiring the advanced skills necessary for a career in the industry.
