Jerónimo Sánchez de Carranza (Hieronimo de Carança; 1539-1600?) was a 16th century Spanish knight, philosopher, and fencing master. In 1569, Carranza published a detailed fencing manual entitled On the Philosophy of Arms and its Skill, and Christian Offense and Defense. Amidst extensive philosophical musings, this manual presented a new system of rapier fencing based on science and geometry which he called The True Skill in contrast to the "common fencing" taught by other masters.
