Intro to Bartitsu
Saturday, February 19 – 1:00pm to 5:00pm
Learn the mixed martial art of the Victorian English Gentleman. In this four-hour workshop taught by David McCormick, you’ll acquire the essential Bartitsu skills of Boxing, Jujitsu, Savate and Cane fighting:
* the basic punches of scientific boxing and the first defensive moves of pugilism,
* the first throw from jujitsu and how to land without hurting yourself when thrown
* the foundations of walking stick self-defence, and the essential kicks of savate.
This Introduction to Bartitsu is a pre-requisite for the ongoing Bartitsu class at the Academie Duello. We want all newcomers to the weekly class to have some familiarity with the core techniques, and to get some practice in an easy environment where all of the students are learning the skills together.
So, whether you’re interested in studying Bartitsu on an ongoing basis, or if you just want to learn the essential elements, the Introduction to Bartitsu covers the fundamentals. Fun and self-defense without getting your spats dirty!
