Bartitsu

If you read the previous post and immediately lost all respect for weapon fighting, I do not blame you. There are a lot more realistic people though as shown here in an example of another style made up by portly middle aged white guys. But you know what, they kept with what they knew and developed bartitsu, a style of fighting with your cane.

Now while the idea behind this style is outdated and silly, I respect it 100% because of the way they seem to train: These guys seem to spar with all resistance, allowing grappling moves as well as the canes themselves and I also saw punches. This aliveness is what makes a martial art and these Bartitsu guys at least seem to train right, however few people still carry walkingcanes around.
