Gentleman's Martial Art
Travel back in time to the mean streets of Victorian London as you learn the Martial Art of Sherlock Holmes, Bartitsu.
Invented by the engineer, Edward Barton-Wright, this was the first Western Mixed Martial Art that combined Pugilism (boxing), Jujitsu, French Savate and fencing.
We give you a brief demonstration of the art and teach you some techniques that you can use on the streets of any modern city as well narrating the history of this fascinating Martial Art. Your training will take place in a relevant historical setting in the City of London and you will be tutored by James Marwood, one of the top Bartitsu & Historical Martial Arts Practioners in the UK.
