    Has anyone ever come across Bartitsu?

    I vaguely recall there existing a Bartitsu Society that ran occasional workshops, but I haven’t been able to see if this is still going in the UK.

    I recall researching about this year's bank, I didn't know there were many places still doing it.

    From what I remember, the way it was practised nowadays was more about a preservation of the art for demonstration than a way of implementing the art into live practise.

    This place seems to be doing it the opposite way!

    What's 'The Bartitsu Lab'?


    TBL is a 'test and learn' approach to Bartitsu. We cover the key skills required with a scientific method. In this way, we ensure that content is always relevant, practical and reliable.


    It means we explore different arts, bring in guest instructors, and test what we think we know. Bartitsu is a 'process' through which we can apply any art. "


    For us, the art must always evolve to meet the challenges of its day. TBL allows us to do just that with Bartitsu.

    Interesting, certainly looks a lot more alive than what I saw years ago :)
