Hans Czynner was a 16th century German fencing master, possibly from the city of Passau.[citation needed] Little is known about this master, but he seems to have been an initiate of, or at least familiar with, the tradition of Johannes Liechtenauer. He authored a manuscript in 1538 entitled Über die Fechtkunst und den Ringkampf ("On the Art of Fencing and Wrestling"), which contained both his own teachings and several treatises by 15th century masters from the Fellowship of Liechtenauer.
