Bartitsu featured in Holland’s “Volkskrant” newspaper

Dutch journalist Erik Noomen’s well-researched article on the history and revival of Bartitsu has been featured in the Volkskrant, one of Holland’s largest daily newspapers. Touching on Bartitsu’s connection with the Steampunk subculture and the Sherlock Holmes mythos and featuring comments by Dutch Bartitsu instructor John Jozen, Mr. Noomen’s article is an excellent introduction to the subject for Dutch readers.

An English translation of the article is now available here – Sparring with Sherlock.

  1. Will see if I can get a copy of the article which was in the saturday paper, but the problem will be that it is written in Dutch.

    At this moment you have to pay to view the article online or you must be a subscriber.
