Meet our Roomies at Forteza: The Bartitsu Club of Chicago

As we recently announced, next month the CSG will be vastly expanding its programs in a new home: Forteza Fitness & Martial Arts. Located in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood, Forteza is a 5000 sf facility, whose brick and timber construction, wooden floors and turn-of-the-century (20th c, that is) appointments and gym equipment makes it a perfect home for the study of 19th c martial arts.

Bartitsu has recently been popularized by its appearance in the Robert Downy-Guy Ritchie reinterpretations of Sherlock Holmes. We are excited to be sharing our home at Forteza with one of Bartitsu’s chief revivalists, renowned martial artist, movement expert and fight choreographer, Tony Wolf.
