Eigentliche Beschreibung des Stoßfechtens ("True Description of Thrust-Fencing"; MS Dresden C.13) is a German fencing manual created by Johann Georg Pascha in 1671. The original currently rests in the holdings of the Sächsische Landesbibliothek in Dresden, Germany. This manuscript is a compendium of Pascha's own lessons on fencing as well as teachings of other masters, including Salvator Fabris and Gérard Thibault; interestingly, Paschen states that he became acquainted with the Fabrisian school through a friend who was a student of Heinrich von und zum Felde.
