The book is divided into three parts: Fencing, Boxing and Wrestling. Each part pays attention to the history of art; some cases in the art of fencing, boxing and wrestling are confirmed by excerpts from ancient literature works. Each section of the book provides detailed description of the technical elements. This treatise is a useful source for both beginners and experienced practitioners about presented types of martial arts.
