Domingo Luis Godinho was a late 16th century Portuguese fencing master. Little is known of this master's life, but in 1599 he wrote a treatise on fencing entitled Arte de Esgrima ("On the Art of Fencing"). Although written after Jerónimo Sánchez de Carranza developed the Verdadera Destreza, Godinho's terminology and techniques appear to align with surviving fragments of the esgrima común ("common fencing") of earlier Iberian masters such as Jaime Pons, Pedro de la Torre, and Francisco Román.[1] His work also shows some similarities to the work of the French master Henry de Sainct Didier, though that is likely due to both sharing similar influences.[citation needed] Arte de Esgrima contains information on sword alone, sword and shield, sword and buckler, sword and dagger, sword and cloak, double swords, and the montante.[1]
