The Bonafont method relies on a simple and flexible strategy based on two primary grips of the cane. A Game of Shadows. The stick, or just a stick, was the first weapon of bonagont man. After four months of regular weekly training sessions, the stitching and padding are holding up well.

By integrating the classical movements from la arturoo, saber, bayonet and other forms of western fencing Bonafont devised a versatile and highly structured system. First we worked on Guard by Distance. First the standard blocks with the opposite arms and then the Jack Slack elbow block. The cane, the weapon and symbol of the gentleman, and even the oldest one, is the one chosen for fighting. Bartitsu is given a shout-out in a new television superhero series, The Cape. A second trailer for Sherlock Holmes: With that I thought it was time to start work on artro Vigny cane techniques.

After it was all over we did a quick after-action review. I finally got the book and am now dealing with a further wrinkle–it’s written entirely in Spanish. Bonafont, taken back by the old masters comments decided that the average law-abiding citizen should be able to defend themselves and their family, and so, after careful thought choose to write the prologue himself.


The failure drill for this technique was that the attacker steps back with his left foot so you can not get the trip on the first attempt.

Thus, remember that the weapon is the hand atturo holds it, and the so-called “weapon” is just the tool. Whereas cane manuals had appeared intermittently during the preceding era, they tended to be closely based on sabre fencing bonafobt, indeed, to treat the stick as a substitute sabre. This manual is a treasure as it is entirely devoted to the use of the walking cane for street survival and has no sportive application to it.

The first decades of the 20th century saw a marked shift in approaches to the use of the walking stick as a weapon of self-defence. I like to start with bonsfont as I find it provides a good warm up and starts building a sense of body movement and contact.

It is quite unnecessary to try and get your opponent into any particular position, as this system embraces every possible eventuality and your defence and counter-attack must be based entirely upon the actions of your opponent. In addition to cane fighting, fencing and boxing, the French Savate also entered, but the latter discipline was unsuccessful and ceased to be practiced among high society groups.

Finally, these young men acceded to pistols and revolvers of American and European origin that they carried and used indiscriminately. For full disclosure, the Bartitsu Society donated copies of both volumes of the Bartitsu Compendium to the production team for the movie.

Furthermore, nobody should have to go to all the lengths I’ve gone too just to be able to learn the Bonafont system.

Since we had been doing the back heel throw I first taught the defense from a face strike that is blocked and you end up tripping the attacker up with a rear throw back heel.

A Game of Shadows promises a great deal of exciting baritsu action. Wing Chun vs 52 Blocks.

We then worked on the defense from a one handed lapel grasp, since this is pretty much the same defense as the face strike but we did the grasp with the left had so everyone could learn that these techniques can be done on both sides.
