I was wondering if anyone here is going to the conference/tournament in Houston coming up on the 19th-21st. I should be there. Look forward to sparring anyone here if so.

I'm otherwise committed in a MA capacity on that date. Hope the event is a big success.

That's too bad. I think this would've been up your alley.

BARTITSU: THE NEW ART OF DEFENCE IN 1898
Instructor- Chris Amendola

In this section we will explore the rudiments of unarmed striking from period Boxing (and possibly Savate) and basic techniques of JiuJitsu from the Bartitsu Club (1899-1902), with an eye towards integrating these systems based on underlying mechanical concepts of movement/body-mechanics. "Translations" of these techniques will also be presented for use with the walking-stick or cane. The emphasis in this section will be on Bartitsu as a personal protection system, as opposed to other sportive/recreational applications.

Equipment: Mask, 36" training dowel, cane, or walking-stick. "

Indeed it would. Co-incidentally, there will actually be two separate Bartitsu seminars happening in the US on that weekend, the one in Houston and this one in Seattle: http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/2010/01/bartitsu-in-seattle/

WMA gatherings are great experiences; the more the merrier!

Hell yeah. I look forward to the day that HEMA, WMA, or whatever you want to call it is commonly known by the average citizen as legit. Every conference brings that one step closer.
