    I think if it was bullshido, it was a very well built one. With all these masters i don't think they would like to participate in a farse, maybe i'm wrong, but at least they didn't steal a name of an exististing martial art like mister magliacano did with pa kua in argentina.

    Yes, sort of. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote it in to one of his Sherlock Holmes stories to explain how Holmes had defeated his enemy, Professor Moriarty, in a fight to the death at the top of Reichenbach Waterfall in Switzerland. However, Doyle mis-spelled the name as "baritsu", probably following the example of a newspaper article about a Bartitsu demonstration that contained the same error.

    Compounding the confusion, by the time Doyle's story was published in the USA his American editors felt that "baritsu" was too obscure so they substituted the word "jiujitsu".

    All of this, plus the fact that Bartitsu was almost forgotten after WW1, was enough to confuse Holmes scholars throughout most of the 20th Century.
