German school of fencing

The German school of fencing (Deutsche Fechtschule) is the historical system of combat taught in the Holy Roman Empire in the Late Medieval, Renaissance and Early Modern periods (14th to 17th centuries), as described in the Fechtbücher ("fencing books") written at the time. During the period in which it was taught, it was known as the Kunst des Fechtens, or the "Art of Fencing". It notably comprises the techniques of the two-handed longsword (Langschwert), but also describes many other types of combat.
