<p>In hope that it should please the honor of the illuminated and highborn sovereign and lord, Lord John Frederick, Elector of Saxony, my gracious Lord, have I, Fabian von Auerswald taken upon myself, the honorable and noble art, and the knightly virtue of wrestling which I have, by the authority of the wise and illuminated, highborn sovereign and lord, Lord Ernest, Elector of Saxony, blessed and Christian in his thought such as from the same widely-famed wrestling masters, as have instructed the Elector and the young men of my gracious Lords, the Electors' sons, and other sovereigns Counts and Lords who have from those noble men and myself learned. And I have, in the same knightly and noble art, instructed and drawn together, and in an artful and systematic report and text, brought into print which is also the righteous art of wrestling, and previously the figure of it never came. Which high report I also beg my gracious sovereign and lord with God's help I have been bestowed, and from which many honorable and good people may profit, honorably and with piety, to honorable and knightly causes it will be brought to light. And it is my hope, my humble and friendly prayer that when any so high or low in station, should my work and labor encounter or acquire, That he would take from me the same gracious friendship and aid, and keep myself and my children in his aid, Now that I am old man well beyond my days, For I was born in 1462, And have this work in the Year of Our Lord 1537, in Wittenberg, completed.</p>

Fabian von Auerswald (1462 - after 1537) was a 15th-16th century German wrestling master. He served as wrestling master to John Frederick, Duke of Saxony, and mentions in his introduction that he instructed the children of the Elector and of members of the court in wrestling.

In 1537, Auerswald completed an extensive treatise on grappling, which was later illustrated by Lucas Cranach the Elder and published posthumously in 1539 by Hans Lufft under the title Ringer kunst: funf und Achtzig Stücke ("The Art of Wrestling: Eighty-Five Devices"). One of the earliest printed treatises on wrestling, the book includes lucid descriptions and detailed illustrations of all of its 85 devices, including one of only two known descriptions of the game called "wrestling in the pit". This treatise saw relatively wide circulation, and at least one wrestling master went as far as to commission a careful manuscript copy (2º Col.MS.Philos.62), to which he added his own annotations on many of the techniques. Auerswald's work also formed the foundation for Paulus Hector Mair's treatment of the subject in his own compilation fencing manuscripts of the 1540s.
