A new article by freelance journalist/martial artist Nick Mamatas on Bartitsu, the steamiest and punkiest of the martial arts.  A mostly accurate summary of Bartitsu history, the Sherlock Holmes connection (both via Conan Doyle and the new Robert Downey, Jr. movie) and an account of the author's visit to a modern Bartitsu class in San Francisco, with a Steampunk twist.
