It would be cool to attend this, but I don't think it would work with my schedule. :\
I'll have to catch it the next time around.

One of the aims of the seminar tour is to "seed" interest in the various cities, towards setting up local Bartitsu study groups; maybe there will be an ongoing training option in your area in future.

It seems that the Steamnpunk craze has increased interest in all things Edwardian/Victorian. At last weekend's I-Con science fiction convention, Vlad Tsepis of the show "Ghoul-a-Go-Go tought at Introduction to Bartitsu, described as "Bartitsu- the gentleman's system of self defense. Learn the history and some basics of this Edwardian martial art. The steam-punk's self defense of choice."
His Myspace page has a bunch of videos of "old school jiu jitsu"

The revival of interest in Bartitsu roughly co-incides with the rise of the Steampunk movement, but there hasn't been much active connection between the two interests until the past year - http://www.steampunkmagazine.com/pdfs/spm6-web.pdf , http://clarkesworldmagazine.com/mamatas_12_09/ , http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/20...r-nova-albion/ , etc.
