I have just posted my most recent translation – the circle-fencing of 16th century Polish fencing master, Balthasaro Cramonio Pomerano!
This should be of value to anyone working with 16th century German martial arts, as well as anyone interested in the “golden age” of Polish sabre fencing.
Although most likely intended for the rappier (aka sidesword), it can and “should be practised and used with all weapons, according to this ordering”. My own interpretive efforts have involved the rappier, the dussack, and the longsword. I think we can also draw some fascinating parallels with the diagrams in Meyer’s Rostock manuscript.
I hope you find this interesting. If you would like to help fund further resources like this, please support me here by contributing to my coffee fund. Having more coffee definitely makes it easier to do my writing and thinking!
