Fall 2021 - This class is the most physically rigorous class I have ever taken. Sifu Ed is a light to this world. He is a very considerate professor and cares deeply about his students. To my understanding, all theater students take his movement class now and it is not split up between professors. It is a conditioning class where you learn stage combat and mindfulness if Sifu Ed is your teacher. His mindfulness techniques are useful especially as actors. I think the class should always be taught in 1350, 2330 is too small and stuffy. You will sweat. It's overall a great workout, just not easy. He's very mindful of injuries and/or exhaustion/sickness. He will never push you too far. He's an excellent teacher. The class rigor academically is a lot of memorization and quite a lot of reading considering the class is physically exhausting. However, it is UCLA and an "academic" class still, so you will memorize and comprehend a good amount of applicable material. Keep in mind that if you're planning your course load. There is homework. To synthesize, you will sweat, read, memorize, mediate, and be very sore. It's good for you and Sifu Ed is the real deal.
