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.
