Stefan Dieke announces a new, ongoing Bartitsu course to commence in September at the Alte Kampfkunst, his full-time Western martial arts academy in Wuppertal, Germany.
Bartitsu classes will be held every Wednesday from 6.30 to 8.00 pm.
The new course will initially focus on the cane and boxing aspects of E.W. Barton-Wright’s “New Art of Self Defence” and will then extend into the kicking and grappling elements. The course details, etc. are available in German here.
On the 9th and 10th of October Stefan will be teaching a ten-hour, two day introductory seminar on Bartitsu, addressing all four main elements of the art.
Wuppertal, which is world famous for its Edwardian-era sky train, is located between Cologne, Düsseldorf and the Ruhr area.
