Sobre el arte de la esgrima ("On the Art of Fencing") is a brief, anonymous passage in a Spanish manuscript (MS II/1579(2)) that dates to ca. 1580.[1] The original rests in the holdings of the Biblioteca del Palacio Real de Madrid in Madrid, Spain. This is one of very few sources for instructions on the use of the montante, an Iberian greatsword.
