Third Annual Antagonistics Weekend
>> RSVP on Facebook
Learn about 19th century fighting arts in North America in both the cities and the frontier. Topics include the early 19th-century Bowie knife and how it got its name, and the fierce Irish faction fighting of the mid-19th century - the infamous "Gangs of New York." 19th-century civilian combatives, including Bartitsu, will also be explored. No martial arts experience required. A study in self-defense and in history!
