  1. This is a translation of a text from that was written in 1570 by Joachim Meyer It is a full guide to German martial arts of the time The introduction is very informative and gives historical details of the time that helps the reader to fully understand the text This includes earlier forms of martial arts and how they were taught compared to Meyers preferred method.The actual writing is fairly easy to understand and pretty fun to read The translator Jeffrey Forgeng mentions that there was difficu [...]

  3.
