Summary
"We tottered together upon the brink of the fall. I have some knowledge, however, of baritsu, or the Japanese system of wrestling, which has more than once been very useful to me." (EH) Bartitsu, which Holmes called "baritsu", was a unique hybrid martial arts, created by a man who studied self defence in Japan, in England and on the Continent. It was Bartitsu that Holmes used in Switzerland, causing Moriarty to lose his balance and fall to his death. Here is the original instruction for bartitsu, in word and photographs, for all to learn. Includes excerpts from Barton-Wright's "The New Art of Self-defence" and relevant passages from the works of Arthur Conan Doyle
