A Junior Stunt School In Moscow

One of the most intresting places in Moscow is located in the estuary of the Setun river. Behind the tree crowns there are some towers and medieval structures. It’s a special junior stunt school “Master” created in 1993 by the famous stuntman Igor Panin. The school occupies the territory of historical and cultural complex Setun camp. Let’s have a look to the school on the inside.

Some people come here just to have fun but other – to become a professional stuntman. Nevertheless it takes 5 years to finish the school. There are such specialities as burning, climbing, high-altitude falling, hand-to-hand fighting, car and motorcycle stunts and fencing.

First you are to dress special underwear then asbestine suit. There should have been real clothes if we were at the movie. But we decided to use old jeans and jacket.

The back of the jacket is impregnated with special gel which should be inflammable and easy to put out.

It’s the easiest burning stunt. To have more fire you are to go through special training.

    • Yes James I do, it is higher than you would survive jumping into cardboard boxes (maybe 20 stories) But it says in the text that they had a world record stunt jump from that height.

      “100-meter jump is a record of Russia belonging to one of the schools stuntmen”.

  1. Cool. I wouldn’t have suspected founding a school like this was on anyone’s mind back in ’93. It was an uncertain time and much bigger problems to tackle back then.
