Learn to fight like Sherlock Holmes! A talented amateur boxer, singlestick player, and of course, master of the mysterious art of baritsu that saved his life, Sherlock Holmes' fighting styles were entirely typical of a 19th-century gentleman's education (and that of a handful of progressive ladies!) Bartitsu (Conan Doyle missed a 't') was all the rage in 1899 London, but only recently has this lost martial art been rediscovered. Learn the "gentlemanly art of self-defense" at workshops taught by Professor Mark Donnelly, a world-renowned expert on historical combat.
  • Learn to use a walking stick or parasol for protection
  • The elegant and deadly arts of Ju Jutsu and savate
  • Scientific pugilism to outsmart the common bruiser
  • Singlestick to match the old gamesters
  • A study in self-defense and in history!
No previous background necessary.
