A depiction of a Master of Fence found in MS , thought possibly to represent Liechtenauer though more likely the author. Little is known about the great Master Johannes Liechtenauer outside those references found in the various treatises and manuscripts written by subsequent masters who followed his teachings. Liechtenauer's unbroken legacy directly influenced masters for over years, surviving late into the C16th with Joachim Meyer's manuscript MS Var. It is highly likely that Liechtenauer continued to influence masters indirectly via the study of treatises written by his disciples. Today the School of Medieval European Fencing have dedicated over 25 years of research and study in deciphering the Liechtenauer system and teach what we believe to be the only true martial based system reflecting Liechtenauer's original teachings. No other martial system has influenced our understanding and all that we know about historical European martial arts HEMA has been derived from Liechtenauer sources.

Today the School of Medieval European Fencing have dedicated over 25 years of research and study in deciphering the Liechtenauer system and teach what we believe to be the only true martial based system reflecting Liechtenauer's original teachings.

No other martial system has influenced our understanding and all that we know about historical European martial arts HEMA has been derived from Liechtenauer sources. Johannes Liechtenauer, active in the mid to latter half of the 14th Century, is considered to be the father of high medieval martial arts.

This was primarily the result of the consolidation of his understanding, taken from his experience as a journeyman, into a system of fence that gained renown throughout Europe in the late medieval period.

As a young journeyman, Liechtenauer would have travelled to many countries in search of Masters of the Art from whom he could learn. As his experience grew so did his understanding, gleaning the best techniques and using them to define a series of core martial principles upon which his entire system is based.

His specific reference to, and understanding of, these universal core marshal principles, combined with his Maisterhaw, establishes Liechtenauer as a great Master and sets him apart from his contemporaries during and beyond the Medieval period and continues to be a benchmark for HEMA practitioners to aspire to today. Liechtenauer's teachings were revered by his students and some became masters in their own right.

As a mark of respect and acknowledgement the 'Society of Liechtenauer' was formed in the late 15th Century, many members of whom were to write fencing manuals quoting the mnemonic aids written by Liechtenauer himself.

The verses quoted in the different manuals that follow the Liechtenauer tradition, which have survived to this day, are almost identical, so it is fair to conclude there is a high likelihood they originated from one source, namely the great Master Liechtenauer, and most likely from a manuscript written by him.

Sadly, as yet, we have no surviving evidence of this document although Ringeck alludes to such at the beginning of his manual:. May God be merciful to him! He it was who had the manual written with cryptic and obscure words, so that the art should not become common knowledge. The use of rhyming couplets was a method purposefully adopted to obscure the true meaning of the Art.

For Liechtenauer to divulge his hard-learned knowledge in a fashion that was obvious to everyone was effectively to give away his life's work, and in the process to undermine his own importance and consequential employment.

By using rhyming couplets Liechtenauer gave his students notes in order that they might remember and reinforce his teachings without providing anyone with the full body of knowledge or understanding. Only those dedicated students of the Art, who fully comprehend and understand the core martial principles and the very essence of what is the 'Art', would have any idea as to what Liechtenauer was referring.

German school of fencing

Johannes Liechtenauer Hans Lichtenauer, Lichtnawer was a German fencing master in the 14th or 15th century. No direct record of his life or teachings currently exists, and all that we know of both comes from the writings of other masters and scholars. The only account of his life was written by the anonymous author of the Pol Hausbuch , one of the oldest texts in the tradition, who stated that "Master Liechtenauer learnt and mastered the Art in a thorough and rightful way, but he did not invent and put together this Art as was just stated. Instead, he traveled and searched many countries with the will of learning and mastering this rightful and true Art. Liechtenauer was described by many later masters as the "high master" or "grand master" of the art, and a long poem called the Zettel "Recital" is generally attributed to him by these masters. Later masters in the tradition often wrote extensive glosses commentaries on this poem, using it to structure their own martial teachings. Liechtenauer's influence on the German fencing tradition as we currently understand it is almost impossible to overstate.

Johannes Liechtenauer

Johannes Liechtenauer also Lichtnauer , Hans Lichtenawer was a German fencing master who had a great level of influence on the German fencing tradition in the 14th century. Liechtenauer seems to have been active during the mid-to-late 14th century. Instead, he travelled across and visited many lands for the sake of this rightful and true art, as he wanted to study and know it. His surname indicates he was from a place called Liechtenau modern Lichtenau. There are several places with this name. Of these he treats as the most likely Franconian Lichtenau, because Nuremberg was a center of later Renaissance-era fencing, and Lichtenau in Upper Austria, because of the geographical provenance suggested by the members of the Society of Liechtenauer. Liechtenauer's students preserved his teaching in the form of a mnemonic poem called the Zettel , Early New High German zedel , a German word corresponding to English schedule , in the sense of "brief written summary"; translated "epitome" by Tobler

The geographical center of this tradition was in what is now Southern Germany Augsburg , Frankfurt , and Nuremberg. During the period in which it was taught, it was known as the Kunst des Fechtens , or the "Art of Fencing" commonly mistranslated as the "Art of Fighting". Most authors of writings on the system are, or claim to be, in the tradition of the 14th-century master Johannes Liechtenauer. The earliest surviving treatise on Liechtenauer's system is a manuscript dated to , known as Ms. More manuscripts survive from the 15th century, and during the 16th century the system was also presented in print, most notably by Joachim Meyer in The German tradition was largely eclipsed by the Italian school of rapier fencing by the early 17th century, however, practitioners of the German school persisted at least until the end of the 18th century.
