The Comprehensive Guide to Combat with Renaissance Polearm Weaponry

Centuries ago in Medieval Europe conflicts were often settled by dueling with handheld armaments other than swords. Such staff weaponry also proved useful in battle, and a variety of techniques for using them effectively developed and evolved over time. German fencing master Paulus Hector Mair (1517-1579) summarized and preserved these fighting traditions for future generations. Compiling and distilling knowledge from earlier texts on the combative arts of the Liechtenauer tradition, Mair produced a comprehensive reference compendium called Opus Amplissimum de Arte Athletica (or Ultimate Book of the Art of Athletics).
