Now how about some fighting! As always check the news/updates section for more info and anything new going on.


  Every Wednesday since 1989, and Friday since 2001, a group of people who have come to be known as "those Shinai people" have been getting together to practice sword fighting with Shinai . On any given week the number of Shinai fighters can range from 2 to 60. An equal number form to watch and have fun on the sidelines. It can't hurt to come and see what it is like.

 Because we are a non-official group, we often practice in parking lots that we get permission to use. We started in a Denny's lot in the spring of 1989, and have moved to several parking lots and open spaces in the area. We have spawned several other groups in the areas surrounding Orange County, and inspired groups to form across the US.

When: Wednesday, 9PM till ~12AM, Friday 9PM till 1AM
Current Wednesday Location: Huntington Beach, CA  7212 Edinger Ave  <-- This practice is currently on hiatus. Email me  for more info.
Current Friday Location: Fullerton, CA. 120 E. Santa Ave.
Why: because it is really fun!!
