Frequently Asked Questions
What's the best way to get to Orlando?
There are two airports in Orlando. Orlando International (MCO) and Orlando Sanford International (SFB). Both are around 25 min. and approximately 15 miles from the University of Central Florida where the workshop will be held. Both are major airports, but it should be mentioned that SFB is the central hub for Allegiant Air which often has extremely affordable rates from numerous cities across the US. We highly recommend checking to see if they fly from a city near you. www.allegiantair.com
Likewise, MCO is a Southwest favorite destination. Check out for great deals with free checked bags.

What sort of classes will be offered?
The staff at the Tourist Trap wants to ensure that you have the greatest opportunity to learn about the arts of Stage Combat & Stunts in the short time you're here. We are therefore happy to be offering classes in all eight weapons offered by the Society of American Fight Directors in addition to a host of specialty stunt and motion capture performance classes taught by our incredible instructors. Please stay tuned for a list of classes and their descriptions to appear on the schedule page!
Can I get certified?
Unfortunately, due to the two day length of the workshop, we are unable to offer any Skills Proficiency Test classes. However, for those of you who wish to renew any previous weapons recognition, we will offer renewals in each of the eight SAFD weapons. *Renewal fees will be paid separately and are not included in tuition for the workshop.
