    Bartitsu in "Shonen Jump" magazine

    Shonen Jump is a kids' magazine that translates Japanese manga comics. The current issue contains an article entitled "Which Martial Art Is For You?" and included in the roundup are Sumo, Judo, Jeet Kune Do, Tai Chi, BJJ, Savate and, of all things, Bartitsu - http://www.bullshido.org/Bartitsu .

    The half page feature contains a few illustrations and a brief description that relative pros and cons of training in Bartitsu:

    "Advantages - Equal parts offense and defense. A fighting style so strange that it may confuse your opponent.

    Disadvantages - May require you to grow a moustache. A fighting style so strange that it may confuse you."

    Can't argue with that.

    The Bartitsu Society anticipates a sharp jump in membership applications from teenage Naruto fans in the near future.

    What, no Muay Thai?

    On a related note, I wish that practicing Bartitsu didn't REQUIRE a mustache, but instead caused the spontaneous GROWTH of a Severn-style 'stache.

    E.W. Barton-Wright's mustache totally owns Dan Severn's:

    Did they call the dress code for savate a disadvantage?

    Probably ... I haven't seen the article yet, it was quoted on the Bartitsu Forum.

    Ddlr, where exactly do you train in Bartitsu? Are there any living Bartitsu instructors?

    I travel around a lot.

    Senior members of the Bartitsu Society sometimes offer practical workshops in Bartitsu, mostly at Western martial arts conferences and one-off seminars. The practical revival (as opposed to purely historical interest) has only been underway for a few years and there are no ongoing courses (yet).

    Do you have a 'stache?

    PROOF that I'm not a completely useless poster:

    Goddammit I wish I could grow a sweet 'stache like E.W. Barton-Wright.

    I guess I should just go the way of Andy Samberg in "Hot Rod" and wear a fake mustache whenever I spar and/or do some sweet stunts.
