    While we're waiting for that happy day, this upcoming documentary will at least touch on the early mixed-styles contests:

    YouTube- Documentary preview: "Bartitsu - the Lost Martial Art of Sherlock Holmes"

    From Barton-Wright's POV, or at least his argument in favor of using jujitsu rules in mixed JJ/wrestling challenges, jacketed submission wrestling was a better simulation of actual self-defense than was wrestling to a throw or pin.

    Sorry if this is a bit off topic, but what do you guys usually do in a Bartitsu club? Do you have regular training or is it more that you have occasional seminars?

    I ask because I've had it at the back of my mind to try and set up a Bartitsu thing for a while now. If I set something up, it would probably be unashamedly LARPy, and geared more towards people who already do judo/boxing/whatever and want to have a laugh, or history buffs who want to try things out.

    So yeah, what do you do, and how do you get started?

    It' still early days for the practical revival, but there are a few clubs and ongoing courses here and there, and quite a number of seminars. http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/bartitsu-today/ lists pretty much everything going on training-wise and if you scroll down the page it also offers some suggestions for setting up study groups.

    Best if you're serious would be to join the Bartitsu Forum - http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/Bartitsu_Forum/ . Almost all the serious enthusiasts are members and it's a notably active, positive group.
