    Bartitsu stick sparring video



    A short video showing some technical stick sparring from the 2012 Bartitsu School of Arms.

    In this type of sparring, the mask, gloves, forearms, thighs and calves are all legal targets. Stick strikes and thrusts as well as unarmed strikes, weapon traps/disarms and standing grappling may all be employed.

    Fighters are encouraged to experiment with variations on the standard high guards, for example by lowering the guards as positions of invitation. They may acknowledge hits verbally and/or gesturally, but the emphasis is on continual action.

    The weapons are 3/4″ diameter, 36″ rattan sparring canes from Purpleheart Armory, equipped with solid rubber ball handles to simulate the steel ball handles of real Bartitsu canes. The asymmetrical balance of the cane is a key factor in Bartitsu stick fighting.

    Interesting video -- thanks for posting it. Question: I assume its intended for combat/SD rather than sport? If so, what are the combat sticks made of? Are they comparable in weight to the sparring sticks?

    Re. sport/self defence, it really depends on the individual instructor's interests and emphasis. Some Bartitsu instructors teach it as historically-inspired self defense, others teach it more as recreational MA. It's probably worth noting that other forms of Bartitsu sparring have different guidelines and rules (allowing different targets, takedowns and submission grappling, etc.)

    The classic "Bartitsu combat cane" is also made of rattan but has a steel ball handle as opposed to the solid rubber handle used for sparring canes.
