Johann Georg Paschen, Vollstandiges Ring-Buch, 1659

Hall in Sachsen: Melchior Oelschlegel

A 17th century book focused entirely on unarmed fighting techniques comprised of 3 parts beginning with an explaination of the concepts of the strong, half-strong and weak as they relate to the parts of the human body. The first part continues with a focus on the upper body, specifically arms with respect to strikes and counters. This is followed by the "other part" which the grapples now include the mid-section followed by the third part which looks at the lower targets.
