Johannes Liechtenauer










“You're using Bonetti's defense against me, ah?”  “I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain”  “Naturally, you must expect me to attack with Capo Ferro”  “Naturally --but I find Thibault cancels out Capo Ferro, don't you?”  “Unless the enemy has studied his Agrippa -- which I have.”
