1976 Bartitsu cartoon

Originally published in the Xenia (Ohio) Gazette of July 27, 1976, this cartoon is a curiosity of recent history in that E.W. Barton-Wright’s martial art was almost completely forgotten during the 20th century. The cartoonist evidently based his work on a copy of Barton-Wright’s 1901 Pearson’s Magazine article, “Self Defence with a Walking Stick”.
