"Speculations on Bartitsu (kick)boxing"
http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/20...su-kickboxing/ - a new article on the ambiguous status of boxing and kicking at the Bartitsu Club circa 1900.

great article thanks.
Its interesting how Bartitsu philosophy is so similar at points to that of mma, that fights start at striking range and will often end with grappling.
It is also shocking that this appears to be the only 'self defence' style that is remotely realistic."The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero projects his fear onto his opponent while the coward runs. 'Fear'. It's the same thing, but it's what you do with it that matters". - Cus D'Amato

Great article also.
It comes over that E.B. Wright was more interested in LPR Boxing (with the kicks) than in Queensburry rules Boxing + La Boxe Franšaise-Savate for self-defense purpose.
Or am I making a wrong conclusion after reading the article?Originally Posted by Jiujitsu77Originally Posted by HumanzeeOriginally Posted by jk55299 on Keysi Fighting Method

The second volume of the Bartitsu Compendium includes almost the whole text of R.G. Allanson-Winn's book "Boxing" as a resource for modern Bartitsu training, partly because Allanson-Winn's style was "scientific" Queensberry Rules + some LPR throws and trips. A-W was into self defense as well as competition. Today, most people who are into Bartitsu draw their boxing from a range of circa 1900 sources and some extend back to the LPR techniques; it's all good stuff.
