As pointed out by the gentleman writing the below blog, Schmidt was likely a student of Bruchius! Comparing the treatises there are great similarities, both in content and in writing style, suggesting Schmidt may have had a copy of Bruchius' book as a reference while writing his own. The fencing style seems to be very similar as well!

Only person I know of who has translated these German texts into English is John "Doc" Lennox- and even then only enough to make working notes for his Ph.D.

During the preparations for one of my workshops in Dijon, I made an English translation of the second part, On Cut-fencing (Hieb-Fechten), which is available here:

I just can't stop myself ;)

Fabris describes "L'Andare di Risolutione" or "Proceeding with Resolution", a set of special exercises in which the principles of rapier fencing are applied to approach and hit the enemy with a continuous walk, without standing still. These exercises were also taught, and described, in Germany in the 17th and in the 18th century, and they are mentioned by Bruchius as "Camineren". Johann Andreas Schmidt also taught the "Caminiren" in his 1713 treatise. I hereby present my English translation of his description: http://www.bruchius.com/docs/A%20great% ... %20RvN.pdf

Jan Schäfer had finished some transcription work on Schmidt years ago, and I happened to have done some more. There were only a few bits missing here and there, so that was easily remedied.
With the addition of an intro, and some layout work, it is now my pleasure to present a nice complete transcription of Johann Andreas Schmidt’s Fecht-Kunst for you all to enjoy over Christmas.
