    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.

    According to Wikipedia, Edith Garrud studied Bartitsu, a self defence method derived from Judo and Ju-Jitsu, introduced in London in 1898 by Edward William Barton White, a British engeneer who had worked in Japan.

    May be intriguing to know that even Sherlock Holmes in Conan Doyle fiction had mastered this method.
