Jaime Pons de Perpiñan was a 15th century Spanish fencing master. According to various sources he was born in Majorca, but eventually moved to Perpiñan, where he is credited with publishing a fencing manual in 1474, which is presumed to have been written in Catalan. Unfortunately, no extant copies of his work are known today, but there are references to him and his swordsmanship in later works, along with his contemporary, Pedro de la Torre, and the later Francisco Román.
