Powerful Self-Defense

Our Urban Defense program is based on the mixed martial art of Neo-Bartitsu and is intended to give you all the necessary skills to defend yourself in any situation. It is unlike any self-defense program in Columbus.

As a combat laboratory, we encourage our students to use improvised weapons and innovative techniques in self-defense situations. We cater to people of all physical abilities aged 16 & up. This is a great program for women looking to feel more confident in their abilities to defend themselves.

What Is Bartitsu?

Check Out This Video From Our Founder

Originally created by Edward William Barton-Wright in 1898, Bartitsu was meant to be a gentlemanly form of self-defense for both men and women in England. Bartitsu is often known as “self-defense in all its forms” and incorporates English boxing, French kickboxing, Vigny cane fighting, and Japanese jiu-jitsu with self-defense tactics.

If you are familiar with Sherlock Holmes, you have likely come across Bartitsu (or as Conan Doyle misspelled it, “baritsu”), and we have this literary reference to thank for keeping it from being completely forgotten. While Barton-Wright’s Bartitsu Club was only open for 3 years, his articles on the style were popular across England and were digitized in the 1990s which brought about a new wave of popularity with the modern era.

Today, we practice Neo-Bartitsu, a combination of the classical methods developed by Barton-Wright and modern self-defense techniques. This is the core of our Urban Defense Program.

Our Belt System

There are no black belts in Urban Defense/Neo-Bartitsu. The core of Neo-Bartitsu is to be a combat laboratory, and since we encourage our students to continue learning other techniques and adapt to changing times, there is no end to the curriculum like in other martial arts programs. Self-defense is ever-evolving and our rankings reflect that. Bartitsu originally did not have any ranking system, and while different schools use different forms of ranking, our Founder, Daniel L. Bellware, implemented this ranking system drawing from his background in TaeKwonDo. We have four belts in our system: White, Green, Blue, and Red.
