Joachim Köppe (Köppen) was a 17th century German fencing master. Little is known of this master's early life, but as an adult he attended University of Wittenberg and received doctorates in philosophy and medicine. While at the university, he also studied fencing under a master named Heinrich Beler[n] von Bautzen, apparently an initiate of the tradition of Salvator Fabris. After he left the university he went on to become a fencing master in Magdeburg, where in 1619 he published his own treatise on rapier fencing titled Newer Discůrs Von der Rittermeszigen und Weitberůmbten Kůnst des Fechtens ("New Discourse on the Knightly and World Renowned Art of Fencing").
