Intro to Bartitsu next Saturday


Mark your calendar: next Saturday, 18 June, is our Introduction to Bartitsu workshop. From 1pm to 5pm you'll learn the core techniques of Victorian martial arts, and fight like Sherlock Holmes.

We'll explore:

  • the basic punches of scientific boxing and the first defensive moves of pugilism,
  • the first throw from jujitsu and how to land without hurting yourself when thrown,
  • the foundations of walking stick self-defence,
  • and the essential kicks of savate.

This Introduction to Bartitsu is a pre-requisite for the ongoing Bartitsu class. We want all newcomers to the weekly class to have some familiarity with the core techniques, and to get some practice in an easy environment where all of the students are learning the skills together.

So, whether you're interested in studying Bartitsu on an ongoing basis, or if you just want to learn the essential elements, the Introduction to Bartitsu covers the fundamentals.
