  • Originally published on the site on Friday, 23rd July 2010

Royal Armouries fight interpreters Rob Temple (as Dr. John Watson, right) and Keith Ducklin (as Sherlock Holmes, left) demonstrate Bartitsu cane fighting poses during their 2001 presentation “Bartitsu, the martial art of Sherlock Holmes”. Inspired by the online publication of E.W. Barton-Wright’s articles at the Electronic Journals of Martial Arts and Sciences Journal of Manly Arts, this was the first known public demonstration of Bartitsu since 1902.
