Bartitsu with Alex Kiermayer

Alexander Kiermayer is probably one of the most prominent instructors of the historical fencing scene. He has a broad background in various martial arts and is training counselor of the group ‘Ochs – historical martial arts ‘. His great knowledge combined with his practical skills make him a sought-after speaker at home and abroad.

Bartitsu is a martial art and self-defence system that existed between 1898 and 1902 in England. A special feature of the system – and seminar focus – is the use of walking sticks as weapons. Bartitsu became known, among others, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of the Sherlock Holmes novels, in which the protagonist also practices “Baritsu”.  The art is a combination of Jiu Jitsu, Swiss svingen wrestling, elements of boxing, Savate (French boxing) and stick fencing.
