AUTHENTIC German Martial Arts

Döbringer's Fechtbuch (MHG “fight book”) written in 1389 describing German martial arts as taught by Johannus Liechtenauer. Note that Döbringer states that the art was already hundreds of years old when he wrote his treatise, indicating that the art came from arch-heathen times. Includes facing page New English/Middle High German translation. http://www.thearma.org/Manuals/Dobringer_A5_sidebyside.pdf


  1. I've been a fan of all the fechtbuch. I really like the kriegsmesser.

  2. Unfortunately, that is one of the versions without the drawings. The drawings are important.

  3. Agreed, the drawings are important for one who wishes to learn the art. This was posted more to give a "feel" than as instruction, in the hope that it might spark some interest in persuing more.
