This transcription / translation of mine was first released online in 2005 (Waldmann,
2005 and Waldmann, 2006), and in print in 2008 (Clements, 2008). Since that time we
have been using these teachings extensively in our school, in the armoured classes.
Together with Marcell Tóth, who is also a trainer in the same class, we have been using
this translation as basis for our work; moreover, he wrote his Free Scholler paper from
the very same material (Tóth, 2012). Thus, this new release of the article incorporates
those seven years of practice and research.
