Anyone who stands on the shoulders of giants can see a little further. Here is my list of I.33 giants:-

Callum Forbes for his encouragement which started many years ago and continues with this project
Clerus Lutegerus the original author
Colin McKinstry who told me to go back to the source, for sharing his insights into how to study the I.33 things like how to move between wards, the meaning of Priest's Special Long Point, and artwork clues such as noting the inertia evident in the actors robes
David Rawlings for his Obsesseo DVD
Dieter Bachmann who kindly provided the translation upon which my work has been based
Guy Windsor for his analysis of ward to ward transitions, and their connection with strikes and counters
John Clements for his various essays on the importance of training with intent, his interpretation of foot positions, his recommendation to use well balanced swords, and his suggestion that to train with historic footwear which has a different grip to modern sport shoes.
Roland Warzecha for his Sword and Buckler DVD and sharing his insights via email
Royal Armouries for scanning the I.33
Stephen Hand & Paul Wagner for their book Sword and Shield which was pivotal in inspiring me to study I.33.
