    Fair enough.

    I hope you enjoy it. :)

    I've been getting really interested in the broad history of grappling around the world so I really want this book. Could anyone recommend other historical wrestling manuals to keep me busy? I'll do a search but recommendations are always helpful.

    http://www.klocktower.org/ringen/aue...ranslation.pdf - a very nicely produced facsmilie of Fabian von Auerswald's 1539 treatise on what is basically sport wrestling, with translations.

    http://www.wiktenauer.com/wiki/Volls..._Georg_Pascha) - Pascha's 1659 unarmed combat manual. It's at least as much "how to win a tavern brawl" as it is wrestling per se.

    Most historical German, Italian etc. martial arts treatises have substantial unarmed combat sections; NB that it often segues into dagger combat. Try searching for "Kampfringen" (German).

    Here are a few videos:

    Thanks a lot, tbh I don't mind if it goes into dagger combat. I'm only limiting myself to reading about grappling because I tend to try and read everything at once and get no where, just a bad habit. I also train in grappling so it seems the logical place to start.
