Codex Amberger is a collection of long missing illustrated plates from a medieval fight book. There are only a handful of illustrations in the found book, but they appear to lineup with other illustrations from the time period where we get treatise collected together by Paulus Hector Mair. By itself it's not much information, but as part of my growing fight book collection it adds to the overall history.

There is no delight comparable to that receiving a box of books long-awaited. To receive that box on a Saturday which had most unexpectedly and unavoidably turned into a workday is both delight and balm. Happy February!

Excellent overview of historical martial arts, with everything from how to train to how to teach a class. Highly recommended for any practitioner of a historic martial art, especially one involving weapons training.

This is a very academic look at the German swordsmanship tradition that comes down from Johannes Liechtenauer. It examines the connections of all the major players around Liechtenauer and their possible connections to him in society. It also examines the influence of the Aristotelian scholasticism, taught during this time, on Liechtenauer's infamous Zettel and the further commentaries made by his fellows and later masters. Highly recommend. #HEMA

I absolutely loved this translation of the Von Danzig longsword treatise. This one is easier to understand than others I've looked at since it focused on making it easier to read in modern English than it does on being exact in the translation.

The Medieval Knights | Louise Park, Timothy Love

Just spent a weekend at Fechtschule New York learning and being exposed to lots of new sword techniques. It was an incredible camping weekend and highly recommend for anyone practicing #HEMA. This knight was in the final mass melee battle they had this weekend.
