Abstract
A finales del siglo XVI y comienzos del XVII se consolida en España un sistema de esgrima que se conoce como Destreza Verdadera, reflejado en las obras de Jerónimo Sánchez de Carranza y Luis Pacheco de Narváez. Estos autores hacen referencia a un estilo contemporáneo denominado Destreza Vulgar; aunque poco de éste ha llegado a nosotros. Se conoce la existencia de autores españoles que publicaron sus obras antes de Carranza y Pacheco, aunque todavía no se han localizado sus obras. Presentamos un pequeño texto de esgrima que podría datarse en la última mitad del siglo XVI, y probablemente sea uno de los textos de esgrima en español más antiguos existentes en la actualidad-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------At the end of the sixteenth century and the beginning of the seventeenth in Spain a new fencing system is emerging, called ¿Destreza Verdadera¿ (literally, True Skill). Jerónimo Sanchez de Carranza and Luis Pacheco de Narvaez are the foremost defenders of this new system. Both writers made reference to a contemporary style called ¿Destreza Vulgar,¿ but very little about this style has reached our times. We also know of some Spanish authors who published their works before Carranza and Pacheco, although extant works have not yet been located. We present a small fencing text that could be dated at the second half of the XVIth Century and probably is one of the oldest extant Spanish fencing texts.
