Martin Huntsfeld (Martein Hündsfelder) was an early 15th century German fencing master. Based on his surname, he was likely born in Psie Pole, a district of present-day Wrocław, Poland; alternatively, it is possible that he was from the village of Hundsfeld, about 20 km east of Würzburg. While Huntsfeld's precise lifetime is uncertain, he seems to have died some time before the creation of the Starhemberg Fechtbuch in 1452.[1] The only other thing that can be determined about his life is that his renown as a master was sufficient for Paulus Kal to include him in the list of members of the Fellowship of Liechtenauer in 1470.[2] Attributed to Huntsfeld are teachings on armored fencing (both with the short sword and grappling), dagger, and mounted fencing.

Treatises

Note that the Augsburg, Salzburg, and Graz versions of Huntsfeld's treatise on short sword fencing are erroneously credited to Lew, while that of Andre Lignitzer is credited to Huntsfeld.[3]

The text of the Krakow version of Hundsfeld frequently refers to intended illustrations that were never added to the manuscript. The appropriate blank pages are included in the illustration column for reference. It's possible (though not likely, given what we know about its origins) that this manuscript was replicating another one with a complete set of illustrations; if this ever surfaces, the illustrations will be replaced.
