This workshop will focus on the extended range of Bartitsu and will make the assumption that the gentleman or lady defending themselves is equipped or encumbered with a cane or walking stick. When facing an assailant who also has a hand-held weapon such as a cane, truncheon, cudgel, etc. one must face the threat carefully, tactically and technically. This workshop will address some of these strategic choices and examine just what can and cannot/should and should not be attempted. Please bring a walking stick if you wish to participate. The Professor will only have a limited amount of sticks for use.
Purveyors of Unique and Antique Walking Sticks, Canes, Cudgels, Umbrellas, Parasols, Brollies, Gamps, Bumbershoots, and En Tout Cas as well as antique accessories and oddities for discerning Ladies and Gentlemen.
