    whats your favourite WMA manual of all time -

    Mine would have to be toss up between petters work on wrestling,the goliath fectbuch or the codex wallerstein.

    i think however the goliath clinches it for me.

    I must choose Fiore (3 manuals, actually, but I count them as one) Allthough I currently study german, there's somthing special about ones first love :D
  3. Cudgel

    Cudgel The name says it all

    George Silver's Brief Introduction on My Paradoxes of Defence

    I would say that Ringeck is my favourite, followed by Goliath and Codex Wallerstein. I'm also a fan of the so-called Dobringer manual.

    Best regards,

    I like Mendoza too. But I'm a coward that dare not box bareknuckles, so I stick to wresteling and stuff. (Pretty ironic, as I have no problem sparring full speed, light contact with metal swords :p )
