    "Bartitsu: the Martial Art for the Steampunk Set"

    A new article on Bartitsu for Clarkesworld, an online science fiction magazine, available at http://clarkesworldmagazine.com/mamatas_12_09/ .

    While tongue-in-cheek, the article is a mostly accurate summary of Bartitsu history and includes an account of the author attending a neo-Bartitsu stick fighting class in San Francisco.

    Bartitsu: the Gentlemanly Art of Self Defence (est. 1899)

    The article describes the Bartitsu of the new Sherlock Holmes movie:
    Once celebrated as the style of Bruce Lee, wing chun is perhaps today more famous for being the style of choice of any number of YouTube warriors who end up being kicked in the head by Muay Thai artists, taken down by Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners, and pounded by boxers. Heck, I do tai chi and I laugh at wing chun people.
    I do believe Bullshido approves this message.

      "The only important elements in any society
      are the artistic and the criminal,
      because they alone, by questioning the society's values,
      can force it to change."-Samuel R. Delany

      THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST NON-EUCLIDIAN SPLATTERJOUST EVER

      It seems that the only people who support anarchy are faggots, who want their pathetic immoral lifestyle accepted by the mainstream society. It wont be so they try to create their own.-Oldman34, friend to all children
