Theory and History

The purpose of this section is to provide some of the necessary theoretical and historical information necessary to satisfy the scholler requirements. It is extremely important that the student begin to develop a deep level of understanding of swordsmanship and all the aspects that surround it, i.e. the theoretical aspects as well as the historical aspects. Most material is available on the AEMMA website at, while others will require some investigation on the part of the student.

The student must review and study the works written by historical masters that include Fiore dei Liberi, Hans Talhoffer and George Silver. The units below will aid in identifying the salient points that should be understood from each manuscript.
