...Or for anyone else who possesses knowledge on the topic.

Do you know if there was a specific way that the Romans trained to use the gladius? I know that they (the Romans) excelled in formations and units, but how did they do in individual combat? Was there possibly a sword art created for the gladius?

I found a treatise online a while back, but it didn't help much. It was in "Ye Olde Speakee", and I would never be able to find it again anyways.
