Jobs von der Nyssen (Josts von der nyssen) was a 14th century German fencing master. He is not mentioned by Paulus Kal as being a member of the Society of Liechtenauer, and his exact relation to the high master is uncertain.

Along with Andres Juden, Nicklass Preußen, and "The Priest" Hans Döbringer, Nyssen is one of the four masters credited with writing the addendum to Johannes Liechtenauer's Bloßfechten found in the MS 3227a and the Glasgow Fechtbuch.
