The Bartitsu Forum

Established in August of 2002 by mystery author Will Thomas, the Bartitsu Forum is an active and positive venue for online discussion of all things Bartitsuvian.

Typical discussion topics include:

* the early history of European jiujitsu

* the eclectic Japanese/European self defence methods developed between 1899 and the early 1920s, and the lives of their founders and practitioners

* street gangsterism, the suffragette movement, “physical culture” exercise programmes and other Victorian and Edwardian-era social phenomena, as related to the martial arts

* the practical revival of Bartitsu as a martial art and combat sport.

Hope to see you there!
