The Sherlock Holmes School of Self Defence

The Manly Art of Bartitsu as used against Professor Moriarty

E.W. Barton-Wright

When Sherlock Holmes wrestled Professor Moriarty on the Reichenbach Falls, he was employing a system of self-defence that was popular in Victorian Britain – the little known art of Bartitsu. Learn how to defend yourself against an attacker using Bartitsu – with an overcoat, cane, or umbrella or even just your bare hands – accompanied by historic documents and illustrated instructions.

E.W. Barton-Wright studied jiu jitsu and judo in Japan during the 1890s, and set up a school-at-arms in Britain called Bartitsu.
