GETTING HERE IS EASY!! For those of you traveling from up north or out of state, we have three convenient airports for you to choose from. Each is within 30 minutes of the Long Beach and Huntington Beach areas where we recommend you book your hotels.

Los Angeles Airport (LAX) / Long Beach Airport (LGB) / John Wayne Airport (SNA)

For those families that want to minimize their time away from work or school, we suggest you arrive on the evening of Friday, October 26th and depart on the evening of Sunday, October 28th. That will allow for you to take full advantage of the two mornings of training with Z-Masters, and the two afternoons of fun and adventure with your family, friends, fellow students, and instructors.

Round Trip Island Transportation

ROUND TRIP ISLAND TRANSPORTATION will be provided to and from Catalina Island on Saturday, October 27th. Catalina Express Ferry departs from the Port of Long Beach around 8AM - Exact departure time will be provided ahead of your arrival. Helicopter flights are also available, but will need to be booked and paid for directly through IEX (Island Express) Helicopters in Long Beach.

Recommended Hotels

We recommend that you book the hotel of your choice near the cities of Long Beach or Huntington Beach so you are conveniently located near our scheduled events. The Catalina Express Ferry departs near downtown Long Beach for our DAY ONE of training and adventures, and our DAY TWO training and adventures will be in Huntington Beach. Since most of our time will be training and enjoying the beautiful cities and sites, it is further recommended that you access one of the many online discount travel sites to ensure you are able to secure the best rates for your stay.

Weather Forecast

Both Catalina Island and Huntington Beach are a mild subtropical climate with warm year-round temperatures. The average temperature for late October ranges from the low 60's to highs in the upper 70's, which would prove to be PERFECT WEATHER for our mornings of training and our afternoons of fun and adventure!!

No gi tops, rank belts, or sparring equipment will be necessary, so that should lighten up your travel bags. For your afternoons of fun and adventure, it is suggested to bring clothing and footwear that will best fit your chosen activities. And as with all other type of island and beach styled travel, be sure to bring your sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, and a fun filled attitude for an AMAZINGLY GREAT TIME!!
