In the first half of the 15th century, fencing master Sigmund Ringeck compiled a book with comments based on the fencing lessons from Liechtenauer's verses first written down in ca.1389. Ringeck's original hand-written manuscript, which contains no illustrations, is of great importance due to its detailed instruction on longsword, wrestling, sword and buckler, armoured combat and mounted combat. Ringeck's greatness is that he starts with the basics and then teaches the student the secrets of the longsword step-by-step. He offers clear and precise instructions in the actual handling of the sword and how to use it to win a fight. And herein lies Ringeck's claim to posterity: he gives instruction in the true understanding of the longsword as a weapon. Today, the longsword instruction found in Ringeck's manual has been given new life by two modern students of the arts. Author David Lindholm has translated Ringeck's text and added extensive interpretations and comments. Illustrator and sword aficionado Peter Svard has created hundreds of instructive drawings capturing every nuance of the medieval swordsman's art.

Also included in this impressive volume is advice for modern practitioners, such as physical training, evaluation of historical resources and the importance of test cutting. Finally, master swordsmith Peter Johnsson shows how to sharpen a sword and describes how the shape of the blade dictates its function. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Diese Arbeit von Lindholm und Svard gehört eindeutig zu den besseren Werken dieses Genres. Bei Rekonstruktionen der Lehren alter Fechtmeister bleibt naturgemäß einiger Raum für Interpretationen. Die meisten Arbeiten, die ich hierüber gesehen habe, nutzen diesen Raum eher fantasie- statt sinnvoll. Das trifft auch auf die meisten "großen Namen" dieses Genres zu. Bei der Beurteilung dieser Bücher sollte man niemals die Realität aus den Augen verlieren. Danach verbieten sich viele der Interpretationen ganz von selbst.
Dieses Buch jedoch ist eine gute Arbeit und wirklich empfehlenswert.

Excellent translation 16. August 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This work is absolutly essential for anyone interested in the medieval art of swordsmanship. The text includes in depth analysis that along with the illustrations make it easily accessible for anyone. An added bonus is that the authors have included the original german text,lacking in Toblers book Secrets of medieval german swordsmanship, which gives me the option to evaluate the interpretations. Both Ringecks comments and Lichtenauers verses are included in german and translated to english in a parralell text. The book is a perfect handbook for anyone interested in starting practice with the longsword,or for the advanced student who wants to go deeper into the meaning and sayings of the old masters. I highly recomend it.

Excellent resource 21. September 2005
Von Camilo Brokaw - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have been studying historical longswordsmanship for more than 7 years now and I can only wish this book had been around the whole while. I began studying Ringeck several years back and have only recently felt as though I have really grasped the elegance of the Liechtenhauer style. This book is perfect for cementing your basic concepts and for clearing up most questions a practitioner might have and hasn't been able to answer through their own experimentation. Beginners should probably find a teacher or at least a competent study group/partner to really get what they can out of this book, however this is the best I've seen for one to start cold with. Also, I have read Tobler's book and though I really appreciate the work he did and is doing (and definitely refer to his book from time to time)... I personally see higher quality of interpretation in this work.

Absolutely awesome 28. Oktober 2004
Von R. LAU - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is probably the best book I've seen on the subject of longsword. Currently it is my source book when I teach class

on longsword combat. While "Secret of German Medieval Swordsmanship" is a great book to have, I still prefer the

simplicity and explanation of this book.

An amibitious project 17. August 2003
Von "dolcinio" - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I started to study historical fencing manuals for three years ago and I'm very happy to see that more and more of these manuals are translated, transscripted and published. David Lindholm is the head of the historical fencing community in Malmö and his school of fencing is simple as well as brilliant. He teaches us that what works well according to the physics of Newton and the way our bodies work has to be the best way to perform the cuts, thrusts and all the various techniques. These teachings is now available in print. I do sincerly recommend this book to all who got a serious interest in the old, european way to fight, I think this is one of the best books written today on the topic.
Lindholm is very methodic in his writings, he first presents the original text in old-german, then the english translation and finally his own comments as well as drawings and instructions on footwork. This is the great strength of this work, with the original text as well as the translation side by side everyone is able to participate in the study of Ringeck's text and may find better translations or interpretations.
This book does not only contain the teaching of the longsword of Ringeck, Lindholm joins forces with the highly skilled swordsmith Peter Johnson (See Albion Armouries for more informations about Peter's work) to write a couple of articles about the swords used, about how to take good care of your blade as well as how to perform good test-cutting.
In all, this is a great tool for anyone that practise historical fencing.

Outstanding 17. Oktober 2004
Von Chris J. Van Slambrouck - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have many books on longsword combat and the like, this is top notch.

Most books and manuscript reproductions are very expensive and one would do well to research the title and author before purchase.

The book is clearly presented, well researched and practical.

A grand tool, and in my opinion better than Tobler's work, but I still suggest his as well.

It is worth it's cost, and a valuable addition to a serious (medieval) martial artist's toolbox and library.
