Meyer’s Sidesword (Rappier) – Index of Plays

I just finished the the index of sidesword plays from Meyer’s 1570 text.

http://fechtkunst.wikispaces.com/Joachim+Meyer#Art of Combat, 1570-Sidesword (Rappier)

Of course the text step is to find (or make) videos of all of the plays. But at least it’s a start. In the mean time, here is a summary of part 2 you may find interesting:

  • Right Ochs 12 Plays (2 in the intro, 10 more under Oberhut)
  • Changing Off 1 Play
  • Gerade Versatzung (Straight Parrying) 24 Plays From, 8 Plays Against
  • Left Underhut (Low Guard) 10 Plays
  • Right Underhut (Low Guard)/Nebenhut (Side Guard) 14 Plays
  • Pflug (Plow) 5 Plays
  • Einlauffen (Running In) 5 Plays
  • Summary 6 Plays
  • Sword and Dagger 17 Plays
  • Sword and Cloak 2 Plays
  • Sword vs. Partisan 5 Plays

    Have you had a chance to read Robert Rutherfoords “The Art and Practice of 16th-Century German Fencing: : A guide to the use of Joachim Meyer’s Rappier”? If so, was it anygood?

    • Grauenwolf says:

      Nope, but I have heard good things about it and I’m eager to get my copy.

      • Joe says:

        Well , long story short I bought

        “The Art of Combat”

        “The Art of Sword Combat”

        “The Art and Practice of 16th-Century German Fencing: : A guide to the use of Joachim Meyer’s Rappier”

        I read them, took a few classes and went over some videos etc and decided this art is not really for me. If you know anyone that wants to purchase these books just let me know ,Im wanting to get rid of all 3 of them and am looking for $100 (including shipping).
