About the area:
There are several restaurants within easy walking distance, Denny's, Wendy's, Starbucks, Togo's, Jack In The Box and a Mexican taqueria. But there are numerous restaurants within a short drive including Vietnam Town, an Asian themed shopping district with many fine restaurants and "Plant Shopping Center", your familiar large outdoor mall.
Auto Parking: TFC has 50 parking spots. The curb directly in front of the building is a bicycle lane and tickets are issued for parking there. The Walmart Market just down the street has graciously allowed us to use their parking lot. They are approximately a 8 minute walk from TFC. Please park toward the street and avoid their customers or the north wall where their associates park. It is suggested that fencers be dropped off with their gear at the front of the venue before parking cars. Note that the Walmart is a grocery outlet and carries full line of sport drinks, fruits and snacks. Here is a google map of the path between:
Hotels: TFC is within easy reach of downtown San Jose and its numerous hotels by car/taxi/bus. But for convenience we recommend "The Elan" which is only a few hundred feet away. It is a two star, no frills but clean and tidy motel which is generally available on weekends. http://www.hotelelansanjose.com/
