The 'textbook' of Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus

Wikipedia has some interesting info on the work and the man ... strange echoes can be heard.

Tangent: spears made with fire sharpened points have been found and dated ~400,000 years of age. Seems that any srious budoka should know a thing or two about how to handle a spear.
Of training:
.....100 days for spear
...1000 days for bow
10,000 days for sword

For our particular interests in power and aiki; Spear teaches many things, but sword remains the hardest and most complete.
