An Interpretation Of Antonio Manciolino's Opera Nova of 1531

This book is the interpretation and teaching notes of Antonio Manciolino's fencing system, as described in his 1531 treatise Opera Nova. This material has been authored by Richard Cullinan.

So that others may follow my logic and understanding I have tried to incorporate references back to the original manual as much as possible. The source material used is elaborated in the Introduction.
