As well as training in Renaissance sword arts, we produce translations of original treatises. We interpret and attempt to implement these teachings.
We have two major translations:
‘The Sword of Combat‘ by François Dancie
‘Treatise or Instruction for Fencing‘ by Hieronymus Calvacabo
Coming soon, we will have a new translation of ‘The Book of Lessons’, a manuscript in French from c.1610, attributed to Pedro de Heredia!
In addition, we have free translations, which can be found below:
The mauscript which probably formed the basis for The Sword of Combat. This translation is from a transcription by Olivier Dupuis.
