Professional Whip Artistry Training & Entertainment

Professional Whip Artistry Training & Entertainment


We don’t offer too many “how to” videos, mostly because the internet is full of experts. We prefer to work directly with our students. What video help we do offer is pretty specific based on requests from students or our social media followers. That said, here are some clips you might enjoy from entertainment to the rare “how tos.”

Demonstrations / How-To’s.

Student Erin O’Donnell-Daugherty took her first lesson at The Whip Artistry Studio on June 21, 2014 under director Gery L. Deer. Here, Erin shows her first achievement, the “circus” or “cattleman’s” crack -the basic vertical, forward cutting crack. Erin had never worked with a whip before and this video was taken after about an hour.

The whip she’s using is a 6-foot, double-bellied, 12-plait Australian bullwhip made of brown kangaroo but hand-died black in 1998, with an 8-inch handle and no wrist loop. It was made by David Morgan for “The Mask of Zorro” and used by Alex Green and Antonio Bandares in the mine scenes.   The whip was also used by Halle Berry during her training for Catwoman).
