Why doesn’t Agrippa talk about the longsword?

In his own words…

I had also planned to say something about how to use the two-handed sword. However, anything I say will be useless because of the uncertain rules that govern it blows, which travel so through the air. It seems sufficient to me to say that anyone who does not know how to use it, but wishes to do so, should not try reasoning it out, since any advice or ordering only confuse you without proper lessons and demonstrations from someone of this profession. I only advise that two people fighting with two handed swords can make this same thrusts described above with hefted weapons.
