The best way to gauge interest re. setting up a new club is to post on the Bartitsu Forum email list (via YahooGroups).  Note that the Bartitsu Club of NYC has monthly meetings and an active Web presence - might be a good place to network, etc.

The second annual Bartitsu School of Arms and Physical Culture seminar and conference event will take place at the Forteza Fitness and Martial Arts studio in Chicago, IL, USA between September 8-9, 2012.

The premise of the School of Arms is to preserve and extend the cross-training experiments begun by E.W. Barton-Wright at the original Bartitsu School of Arms in London, circa 1900.

Participants are invited to join a field trip and guided tour of the Hegeler Carus mansion and historic gymnasium in LaSalle, IL on the afternoon of Friday, September 7. Saturday the 8th will include a full day of Bartitsu cross-training instruction followed by dinner, discussions and socialising, and Sunday the 9th will include a further day of training with fellow enthusiasts, finishing with a fun and challenging antagonisticathlon combat obstacle course event, presentation of participation certificates, etc.

Please see the 2012 Bartitsu School of Arms web page at for all details, registration, etc. Also, please feel free to share this link via Facebook, email and appropriate forums.
