Quiet Flame International
Action Actors' Training Program
About the program
Quiet Flame's AATP (Action Actors' Training Program) is a program designed to produce well-rounded, mulit-lingual actors. We strive to provide actors with the training they need to excel beyond their peers by having a more diverse set of skill sets, and a higher level of adaptability and physicality, all while training in an English-first, but multi-lingual environment with both Japanese and Non-Japanese actors and stunt performers training side by side.
Additionally, in contrast with other training programs, Quiet Flame goes the extra mile by setting up regular filming dates for students as well, so that all of their skills can be applied in an actual set environment with high-end cameras. In doing so, we not only give people the skills, we give people a chance to apply those skills on camera, but also provide them with all of the footage that was taken during the course so that they can use that footage to create high-quality demo reels.
The training is broken up into 3-month blocks with each block ending with an opportunity to film. In addition to the action classes, students also have access to special action seminars (firearms, knife-fighting, etc) seminars and specialty stunt seminars (wire action, wrecks, high-falls etc) to further develop their skills.
Students can commit to just 1 block, (3 months) 2 blocks, (6 months) or 1 year. After completing each blocks, students are given a certificate of completion, and all of the footage taken from the course for creating their demo reels.
Each block consists of:
Weekly Action (Fight Choreography Class)
Weekly Olympic Taekwondo Class
Weekly SE Asian Martial Arts Class (Kali, Escrima & Silat)
2 sword seminars a month
( Katana & Rapier)
1 specialty seminar
( Tactical Firearms, Wire Action, Knife Fighting, or Flexible Weapons)
1 filmed fight
(2v1 moving camera, knife fight, fight with dialog, or sword fight)

For Those Coming From Abroad
For those coming from abroad, Quiet Flame's AATP program is a great way to not just develop your skills as an actor, and/or movement artist, but to also develop foreign language skills on top of it. Partnering with UJS Language school (a 10 minute walk from our main training space in Roppongi) students can take intensive Japanese classes during the day, while still leaving their schedule open to train at Quiet Flame at night. Through the Japanese language program, for those interested in staying in Japan for 6 months or 1 year, both student visas and work opportunities within the Japanese entertainment industry are available.
For those who want to come and train for the three month period, no visa is required.
While students are responsible for finding and paying for their own housing, Quiet Flame will assist you in the process.
