Bartitsu and Antagonistics Workshops with Mark Donnelly at the Steampunk World’s Fair

  • Originally published on the site on Wednesday, 8th May 2013

The 2013 Steampunk World’s Fair will feature a series of seminars and presentations by Mark Donnelly, including “Gangs of New York: Irish Faction Fighting”, “Introduction to Bartitsu”, “Irish Shillelagh Fighting” and “Jujitsu Suffragettes: A History of Women’s Self Defense”.

A gentleman of world renown and fame,
with knowledge of historical events,
Professor Mark P. Donnelly’s his name,
and anachronism’s what he represents.

He’s published many works of print and prose,
on history and swashbuckling and lore,
he’ll lecture us on all the things he knows,
with tales of torture, piracy, and more.

But then to change the pace, he’ll take up arms,
if skirmishing or sparring strikes a chord,
his martial skills will back his wit and charm,
he’ll demonstrate, with stick, and cane, and sword!

The Steampunk World’s Fair humbly beckons you,
see the PROFESSOR’s derring-do revue!
