Self Defence for Ladies and Gentlemen Seminar in Germany

A gallery of photos from a recent combined seminar held in Garching an der Alz, Bavaria, Germany. Participants trained in armed and unarmed Bartitsu under the watchful eye of instructor Alex Kiermayer and in classical pugilism with instructor Christoph Reinberger, and were also given the chance to tour a local “living history” museum devoted to the early 20th century.
