Workshop July 26
Learn the fighting style of Sherlock Holmes in this unique one-day workshop at Academie Duello.
England in the 19th century was replete with instructors in martial arts from the world over. E.W. Barton-Wright had returned from Japan and opened a school to teach the English gentleman how to defend himself against ruffians using only the most effective techniques whether unarmed or carrying the accessory of the time: the walking-stick.
The Bartitsu system worked so well that Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle wrote that Sherlock Holmes used it to defeat Moriarty.
- English boxing, French kickboxing and the English interpretation of Judo
- Stick fighting and self-defense with an umbrella
- Modern urban self-defense evolved from the principles of Bartitsu
Whether your interest is in history or practical self-defense, this workshop will give you the skills and knowledge of 19th century fighting.
