Re: Pseudo Peter von Danzig's Verkehrer (half-hew)

My interpretation : The Half-hew is an " Unter Zwerch Hau " that can also be understood as an inverted Unterhau (short edge). I don't think Mair is related to PvD in that matter. PvD refers to Verke[h]rer as inverting the blade while Ringeck and P.H. Mair refer to it as the reversion of t...

Schnappen = umb schlagen?

Hi, would you have references to show that they're the same thing or different in traditional KdF please? I found that Meyer defines both differently. Ringeck and "Danzig" define Schnappen but not the other. Meyer's other Schnappen seems to correspond to the first technique against versetz...

Re: Zucken

The "push pull" idea with the hands is a very inefficient way to do anything, especially if you want your hits to be able to cut and do some damage, rather than just landing as touches. A better set of mechanics is to keep the sword directly in front of your body, and move the body to the...

Re: Zucken

How do you Zucken faster and more efficiently regarding mechanics?

The only thing I could come up with was that push-pull (I mean, pull with the front hand and push with the back hand).

Re: Resources for FNHD, MHD, and other early Modern languages

For German, I'd add these as additional but not so reliable resources: they are very concise and not well-sourced. Still, they might help and are easy to look up. - Schola Artis Gladii et Armorum: Middle High German Dictionary http://www.middleages.hu/english/martialarts/middlehighgermandictionary.p...

Ringeck's Additional glossa transcription

Greetings, Do you guys know if and where I could get Glasgow's or maybe Rostock's additional glossa transcriptions? I'm translating Ringeck into Portuguese (about to finish the draft) and other texts would help. I see the transcription on Hammaborg's page but it seems Wiktenauer is still missing Gla...
