The Bartitsu School of Arms 2013 is now being publicised and details can be found here: http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/about/the-bartitsu-school-of-arms-beamish-museum-2013/
This looks like an amazing event and as it is happening on our doorstep I am hoping a good number of us will be able to make it along to pick up new skills to bring back to the group. Also would be a fantastic chance to meet some of the leading names in the world of Bartitsu and get a better grounding in how the art is being practiced and explored by other groups. On top of that, as if you needed more persuasion, there will be a chance to socialise (read drink!) with the other attendees so should be a lot of fun as well as a lot of hard work.
Between now and September I will be covering all the core material required for the event so anyone who wants to go will have the necessary skills. Nearer the time I will also make sure we have enough equipment so that anyone who wants to go will be able to make the most of it. However, as you will see from the webpage above, we already possess most of the required skills and equipment.
So have a look and get excited, this is an amazing opportunity for us so lets make the most of it.
