    Those are pretty damn interesting. Does Ms. Godfrey practice or is she just a researcher? Just curious after reading what she wrote her Dissertation on.

    AFAIK Emy Godfrey took a self defense course in college, and that inspired her to focus on the history of that subject academically. She's currently prepping a companion history of women's self defense in the Victorian and Edwardian periods; she's also interviewed in the upcoming Bartitsu documentary.

    Awesome keep us updated. A history of Women's SD sounds interesting and new.

    I'm mostly looking forward to the next book as a serious study of the jujitsu-trained Bodyguards of the British Suffragette movement; they really deserve to be better known.

    It's too bad the publishers want so much for Emy Godfrey's book. As much as I love this stuff there's no way I can justify shelling out 80 dollars for a 200-page book. I know it's specialist subject matter but even so surely it doesn't cost that much to print stuff.

    IMS, the target customer is University Libraries and academic dollars.
