Jujitsu trainer of the Suffragette bodyguards to be honored with plaque
Hidden history coming to light a hundred years later ...
Interesting stuff. I was surprised to read that they trained Indian clubs as concealed weapons.
Yep. They kept the clubs concealed in the bustles of their dresses and seem to have mostly used them knock off police constables' helmets - the constables had to pay for lost helmets out of their wages, so it was kind of a distraction tactic.
This must be the lineage of Hegehogey's jiujitsu.
