    Ddlr might know, he's the resident Bartitsu guy.

    The UK HEMA Facebook page is also a magical resource: https://www.facebook.com/groups/3636...07721/?fref=ts

    The closest thing I can think of to a Bartitsu club in Scotland is the Black Boar school - http://www.blackboarswordsmanship.co.uk/index.html. Their "antagonistics" curriculum is quite similar to Bartitsu cross-training, with less of an emphasis on jujitsu and a somewhat different approach to walking stick self defense. It's based on the system developed by Emile Andre, a noted c1900 French fencing/combat instructor.

    Hope this helps.
