Welcome to the Action Performance Bo Course Level 1

Why is it so HARD to find a Good & Reliable Weapons Coach!!


For those of you looking to start practising weapons, find a good and reliable coach is not an easy task! Not all styles of Martial Arts practise weapons and not all instructors have weapons training experience. Usually, this is a specialist area and you can end up spending more time searching for an instructor / coach or having to travel huge distances to train with a proficient weapons practitioner, than actually being able to just pick up your weapon and train!

I know, I've been there, sat on the motorway in countless traffic jams and hold ups to go and train for just an hour or two and then make the long journey home. Your search is finally over and you can get started right away with the ZP Online Training Academy.

Weapons training will give you an essential edge if you are an action or stunt performer. Many fight and action scenes involve some kind of weapons choreography and the added bonus is that the skills learnt and practised are transferable so you can easily adapt your skills to similar props or weapons. 

For instructors and school owners,  Weapons training is a fantastic way to keep students engaged and learning new skills. You can use drills and skills to keep your classes fresh and motivating or even have a dedicated weapons training program or class. Adding variety and disguising repetition is essential for teaching successful classes and your students will love you for giving them new content and curriculum to learn and master. 

Most of all Weapons training is FUN and a unique way to exercise for anyone wanting to stay active and learn some cool stuff. 

There are many other benefits such as improved hand-eye coordination, agility, strength, conditioning and speed and memory and more! Plus, You can set yourself targets and challenges with progressive techniques, combos, forms and tricks!

As a martial artist, instructor, actor and stunt performer, my weapons training has held me in good stead and really brings that extra arrow to my bow. This is especially true in auditions, performances and for building a competition & demo team at my school. 

I created the Action Performance Bo Level 1 course for anyone looking to learn a fusion of traditional and freestyle Bo. Tradition and basics are key ingredients to becoming a well rounded and proficient weapons practitioner, and this course is going to give you the tools and structure you need to get started. 

You no longer need to scour the internet or travel miles and miles to start training. The beauty of online training is that you can study in your own time, anywhere and anytime. In addition to that, by joining the ZP Online Training Academy you can be held accountable for your training by joining our dedicated student and learners group, ask questions, post your progress, give & receive feedback and interact with a likeminded community.  


The Action Performance Bo Course is an ideal course to study right now, especially whilst lock down measures are in place and we are practising social distancing. You don't need anyone to train with, just you, your weapon and some space! 

We all have a little extra time right now to do some of the things we've always wanted to do - like develop and learn new skills. There really is no better time to start your weapons training in the safety of your home (or garden) and whilst the lock down is enforced the introductory course offer will stay too!

The Level One Action performance Bo Course will take you through a structured learning program to enable you to follow along and practise basic blocks, stances, strikes, combinations, manipulations, spins and tricks and the complete Action Bo Form. 

Each section is broken down in detail to give you an easy to follow step-by-step guide through the techniques. 

You're going to have FUN practising, developing and creating your own combinations and flows once you've got the basics down!
