Kicking Ass in a Corset - Bartitsu for Ladies w/ Prof. Mark P. Donnelly

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop will be an extensive introduction to this esoteric system of
self-defense specifically focused on (and limited to) ladies and gentlewomen.  Some of the techniques employed by Victorian ladies studying this art vary from those taught to their male counterparts.  Partly this was physical but also due to the differing nature of the physical threat and the variety of accessories with which she might be equipped/encumbered. In the Ladies session, therefore, will explore: grappling, savate, canne, parasol, fan, handbag, etc.
