Concordance by Michael Chidester

Michael Hundt was a 17th century German fencing master. His inclusion of a griffon with a sword is arms may indicate affiliation with the Veiterfechter fencing guild.

In 1611, he authored a treatise on the use of the rapier entitled Ein new Kůnstliches Fechtbuch im Rappier ("A New Art-Filled Fencing Manual on Rapier"); this, along with Gründtliche Beschreibung der Kunst des Fechtens by Joachim Meyer, was one of the sources drawn upon by Jakob Sutor von Baden for his own treatise of 1612.
