Kron -- "crown" in medieval German -- is an affiliate of the HEMA Alliance, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to research and teaching of HEMA: Historical European Martial Arts. We teach a complete combat system including longsword, dagger, ringen (grappling), staff, spear, and other weapons. The first practice session is free. Regular practice sessions are $5 each for guests. Members pay $52/year ($1 per week) to attend as many sessions as they like, and members vote on how this money is spent on the club. Kron LA is a chapter of Kron OC. Any paid OC members are permitted to train with us at no extra cost. We take safety seriously, but this is not role-playing or games. This is a martial art where practitioners are expected to defend themselves with sparring appropriate to their training level.
