Bartitsu, an eclectic martial art founded by E.W. Barton-Wright in the year 1899 is possibly our first mixed martial art. Bartitsu was a combination of four of the most effective self defence methods known at the time - jiujitsu, boxing, savate and fighting with the walking stick. The art would introduce JuiJitsu to Europe for the first time.

This volume explains the origins, methodology and history of Bartitsu, a mixed-martial arts brought to Victorian England by Edmond Barton Wright.
