What is Lonin?

Lonin League is a nonprofit organization devoted to the study and practice of Historical Martial Arts. The group has been operating in Seattle since 2004, and our club members put on the annual Swordsquatch event, which brings together people from around the world, with the motto “Fight. Play. Learn”

Most of what is practiced at Lonin belongs within the realm of HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts), based on documents that date back as far as the early 14th century, but some of our practice groups study martial arts from the Philippines, Japan, India, and Africa.

We have classes running indoors throughout the week at our new 6th and Lander location. Contact info@lonin.org to set up your first visit! Our spectacularly low member fee of $48 a month grants you access to everything our club has to offer.

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to advancing historical martial arts from all over the world. We are a group of groups, each organized and coached by volunteers.
