Bartitsu Seminars with Mark P. Donnelly, November 17-18, 2012  
I haven't been posting much to my LiveJournal, but I have been keeping busy with historical costuming, steampunk, and Bartitsu, the lost martial art of Sherlock Holmes. I am part of the international revival of this esoteric martial arts, and I run a club of practitioners who get together regularly to study and learn from historic documents. We bring historic martial arts expert Mark P. Donnelly to NYC every few months to teach seminars, and he is returning again on November 17-18, 2012. Everyone is welcome to attend - no experience necessary. Visit www.nycsteampunk.com/bartitsu for all the details.

If you are interested, there are Bartitsu clubs and schools all over the world, although not too many of them just yet, but the revival is gaining momentum. Here is a complete list of all the active Bartitsu clubs and schools that we know about http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/bartitsu-today/
