The IOSP holds workshops all over the world, with the marquee event being the Paddy Crean Workshop. For over a decade, "The Paddy" has found its home at The Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada. The Paddy has offered everything from historical fencing, stunt work, military drills, Laban technique and mask work to Zulu stickfighting, Chinese Opera and Parkour. With a faculty and participants drawn from over a dozen countries and representing every major national stage combat organization, The Paddy is a truly unique experience.
