Description:
Ott Jud ("Ott the Jew") was a 15th century Austrian martial arts master, specialized on grappling (Ringen).

The version of his treatise in Codex Lew states that he was a baptized Jew."Neuerdings hat Ginsburger ('Les Juifs et l'art militaire' in ) nachgewiesen, daß der herzoglich österreichische Ringmeister 'Ott Jud' ein Judentäufling war. Aber ob das wirklich als 'preuve presque certaine' aufgefaßt werden darf, daß der von G. erwähnte Autor eines Buches über Fechtkunst namens Andreas Jude ebenfalls jüdischer Abkunft war, erscheint mir zweifelhaft."Zeitschrift für die Geschichte der Juden in Deutschland, vol. 3 (1931).

Paulus Kal describes him as the wrestling master to the rulers of Austria, and names him as a member of the Society of Liechtenauer.

Ott's treatise on ringen is repeated throughout all of the early German treatise compilations and seems to have become the dominant work on the subject within the Liechtenauer tradition.
