Hi Michael,
I like the last link, naturally because it mentions texts written by a Portuguese King , in the following passage:
'The King of Portugal, Dom Duarte, produced several training texts in the 1420s'.
This reminds us that, also in the same website, there is a link where the same King is reported to encourage the training of fencing, namely with the historicaly famous wooden swords (wasters).

Hi Fernando,

It's good to know that there is finally one brave guardsman to watch over Portuguese history!
