Tim Hall, David Rowe and I have just published an article on the 16th century Ringen master Fabian von Auerswald on the Chivalric Fighting Arts Association Blog.
It is meant to highlight the man himself as well as give a video sampling of several of the techniques seen in von Auerswald's amazing ringen treatise, Ringer kunst: funf und Achtzig Stücke (The Art of Wrestling: Eighty Five Techniques), including showing a small demonstration of the historical game Ringen im Grublein, which is described in the treatise. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did writing and filming it!
