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!
