Description Alcohol Marker and Ink on Acrylic board. For the Imaginary Super Heroes Swap.

Edith Garrud was one of the first martial arts instructors in the United Kingdom. She and her husband, William Garrud, studied Jiu Jitsu together. In 1908, Garrud began teaching Jiu Jitsi to the members of the Women's Suffrage Movement of Great Britain. Her squad of "Bodyguards", using "Suffrajitsu" were involved in many hand-to-hand combats with the police over their public harassment of the ladies. To aide them against the large opponents, many of the women carried small batons to beat away attackers.
