A dinner jacket to the face will change that tune, good sir.

There's a name for "gentlemanly combat". It's all about stuff like that, and fighting with umbrellas and walking canes. It's called Bartitsu. There's some gym in Chicago that has started teaching it. I guess it gained in popularity way back when due to Sherlock Holmes using it in his stories.

I could see it making some kind of comeback if the Sherlock Holmes movies weren't explosion-a-riffic movies, since it's more like Bartitsu kind of reminds me of what Victorian Parkour would be like; efficient ways to disarm villains and evil-doers with what you have.
