    I've seen this "T-Shirt meme" several times, usually with a "tactical" or "viking" theme, but I couldn't find one with a Judo theme. So I made them myself.

    The custom Dark T-Shirt I designed on CafePress.com
    The custom Men's Classic T-Shirts I designed on CafePress.com
    The custom Sweatshirt (dark) I designed on CafePress.com

    Using this site, you could make your own. If you don't want to go to the trouble, here they are.

    The site is great for making your own, one-off, type stuff. I needed a Tomiki Aikido patch but couldn't find any, so I made one:

    I needed some Bartitsu patches & swag but, obviously, there are none, so I made some:
    Bartitsu - The New Art of Self Defense

    Of course, one-offs, plus shipping tends to be a bit more pricey. You're better off to buy a bunch and save on shipping. It's a good way to get a stock of "club patches," "club T-Shirts," or that kinda stuff. Need a "Mos Eisley Judo Clob" patch? This is the place to make one. I'd be happy to answer any questions about user & creator experience.

    Peace favor your sword,

    I can help you make one. First you'll need an account on CafePress. It's pretty straight forward but let me know when you get to the image. There's one or two little tricks that will help.

    Bartitsu, how did this little known art end up in the USA?
    Do you still use a cane?

    Mostly due to an early 21st Century revival effort carried out with the assistance of early social media such as list-servers and growing from there. The Bartitsu entry at wikipedia has a pretty good time line.

    Yeah. I don't walk with is as often any longer, just occasionally. I still have one that rides by my seat in the car.

    Yes. Cane work is fundamental to Bartitsu, both classic/historic and neo-Bartitsu.
