What we're about

South Coast Swords is the most active HEMA group in Southern California.

HEMA is contact martial arts based on research of historical training manuscripts. South Coast's instructors teach longsword, dagger, staff, spear, sword and shield, rapier, armored fighting, langesmesser (German heavy machete), poleax, cane fighting, medieval wrestling, Scottish combat, and more.

If you're too far away to come to our regular practices at South Coast Fencing Center, look up the other Kron Chapters in Fullerton, Burbank, and Phelan. If you're not near enough to any of those, maybe we can help you start a medieval martial arts study group.

We also have a kids program which you can learn about at Swordscholar.com, but this Meetup group is for our adult martial arts programs. Come try a class!

South Coast Swords - Youth Program!

South Coast Fencing Center

South Coast Swords is happy to host our Youth Program. Ages 7 and up are welcome to attend 1:30-2:30pm every Sunday. We will cover a variety of techniques with the longsword and dagger, as well as plenty of games and activities that build coordination and fitness! Our students enjoy access to a wide variety of training tools and extremely experienced instructors with training in over a dozen unique historical weapons. Students may also join the adult classes taking place in other time slots, with instructor permission. ************** The Youth Program has a drop-in fee of $25 per class, but with a 10 class bundle (does not need to be consecutive), classes are only $15 each!
