Sleeping Samurai is a company based around bringing Interactive Entertainment to conventions. We supply hand made foam weapons, made to simulate actual weapons with as much historical accuracy as possible. These weapons are created entirely by the staff of Sleeping Samurai. Most all of the weapons that we create are Asian inspired. We do have some European inspired weapons, though. So, whether you are looking for a foam Katana or a foam Hammer, you should find what you need in our wide array of weapons. Custom orders are always welcome!
Sleeping Samurai was founded in 2007 and since that time we have brought our expertise to dozens of shows, so far. We travel across the U.S. to bring conventions our unique style of foam fighting. Not only do we offer con attendees the chance to participate in the foam battles themselves but we also hold instructional panels, historical panels, choreographed fight routine panels, training sessions and much more. At each convention we attend, we hold tournaments for con attendees to participate in (where available). The winner of each tournament receives their pick of one free item from our inventory. Foam weapons, parasols, hand fans, necklaces, prayer stones and sensual oils are just a few of the items that we carry.
You can check out our web site for a full listing of the weapons that we create and for information on the conventions that we are scheduled to attend. Our web site is www.SleepingSamurai.com. For any questions you may have, we can be reached at TheSleepingSamurai@gmail.com. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
PLEASE NOTE: In the past at A-Kon® you have been able to find Sleeping Samurai in the Special Events space mostly active in the overnight hours. With our move to a new hotel, the group will be moving to a space all their own throughout the weekend. They will still have a table in the Artist Alley, but can be found on the Mezzanine level of the hotel in the Miro room.
