‘ Whoever wishes to acquire honor
Before princes and before lords
In fencing with the sword,
That is good and proper
That follow my lessons
They triumph continually.
Hold the six courses in guard
They are quite praiseworthily good
In them is well understood
Many good masters’ wisdom
From Hungary, Bohemia, Italy,
From France, England, and Alamannia,
From Russia, Prussia, Greece,
Holland, Provence, and Swabia.’
