http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bartitsu

Actually, there is a long history of martial arts training for suffragettes. Bartitsu, more famously known as baritsu in the Sherlock Holmes stories, is a very early Mixed Martial Art, but it has quite a lot to do with judo, Mr. Barton-Wright having studied under Jigoro Kano himself.

I rather suspect the video you found is a descendant of that legacy.

Oh, of course. I don't have time at the moment (should be getting blood drawn for a lab) but I intend to edit this later to add some context. Or not, depends on my work load.

That's pretty cool. Yeah you should look up the history of other martial arts designed to help women defend against men like Wing Chun and the like. I love the way she slams these guys on the ground...

That's what i need a woman I can work my ground game on.
