The Way of the Samurai Taught by Ryan Karels

The Way of the Samurai is found in death. In this class we'll talk about samurai metaphors. Samurai style is based on sharp, decisive moves, clarity and composure. The Samurai Improvisor nails the second game-move in a scene.

The class will develop a new show by applying the samurai style to several known forms.
