Ha ha ! Parasol duelling looks like fun! :)
Ha ha good sports! I love your steampunk themed posts. They are very inspiring and make me long for the steampunk event this summer :)
was this a subset of bartitsu or just sport? looks cool either way
This particular style has its own rules by the blogger who created it, and I think it is mostly in fun. However, there was a baritsu and self defence instructor known as Miss Sanderson who used to teach a form of parasol self defence. There is a snippet about her here: http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/2013/03/miss-sanderson-and-the-womanly-art-of-parasol-self-defence/
Hi LauraQuick followup to your post.There has been a lot of interest being generated by my Parasol Duelling rules.We had a very well attended demo at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo this year. It was the largest Expo yet with 97,000 attendees!Our demo was in a fairly small room, only about a 100 people or so, however the Expo people say they turned away that many again who wanted to see our demo.Most of it was videoed so you can see Parasol Duelling in action at my blog linked below.Thanks so much for your support!http://gearsgogglesnsteam.blogspot.ca/2014/05/parasol-duelling-in-action-at-ccee-2014.html
