Wassmannsdorff's Fechtbuch is a German fencing manual written in the 16th century. It was owned by Karl Wassmannsdorff in the late 19th century, but its location is currently unknown.

Wassmannsdorff describes it as a manuscript attached to a copy of the 1516 edition of Andre Paurñfeyndt's Ergrundung Ritterlicher Kunst der Fechterey; the manuscript portion includes the date 15 December 1539.[1] It contains at least two fragments of the wrestling treatise of Ott Jud, one of which was transcribed and included in Die Ringkunst des deutschen Mittelalters ("The Art of Wrestling of the Middle Ages", 1870), and the other of which was referenced extensively in the footnotes to his edition of the Augsburg version in the same book.[2]
