Bartitsu clubs and training article
A new article at Bartitsu.org offering hints and tips for people who want to set up their own recreational Bartitsu clubs. Includes advice on suitable background skills, resources, structuring training sessions, etc.
Thank you for that. I would love to do this one day, and am pretty sure I could find willing instructors and students.
However, if you were going to put together (for the sake of argument), a twelve-week course meeting twice a week, how would you go about it? Would you do four weeks of boxing/savate, four of judo variants, and four of cane fighting? Or would you start to blend them all from the start?
I'm just wondering, as I think I would have a much better chance getting something going if it was based around college semesters.
Glad you liked it. Assuming that everyone involved was on-board re. collaboration/experimentation/cross-training, I'd blend all the styles from the start under those circumstances, emphasizing common principles and transitioning between ranges.
It would definitely help to take a seminar or two to see how it can be done. You had mentioned plans to come to the North East - is that still a possibility?
We'll probably have a better idea about that after the ISMAC event in Detroit (six weeks away).
I'll keep a lookout for it - it'd be great if you'd come.
Sorry I won't be at ISMAC, but I'm going to judo camp in mid-August and then moving to NYC. I'm already asking rather a lot of my long-suffering family. Maybe next year.
Too bad we don't have this in Serbia... Although it would be viable for teaching alongside Judo, Jujutsu and boxing in my area.
