Becoming a Member

How do I join?

Joining is a three step process. After doing the following, you can attend classes regularly:

  1. Contact us, ask questions, and see if we're right for you.
  2. Get your HEMA Alliance Membership and come watch a class.
  3. Get your Resurgam HEMA Membership.

Resurgam HEMA is a HEMA Alliance Affiliate, meaning we are essentially a branch of their organization. You must be a member of the Alliance to attend our class and be a member of Resurgam. Both the HEMA Alliance and Resurgam use a management service called Tidy HQ, so you only need one account to manage both your memberships.

The HEMA Alliance offers a free two-month introductory membership for beginners who are just getting started, or you can simply jump in and get yourself a yearly membership. Either way, we must have proof of your HEMAA membership for you to attend class - forwarding your confirmation e-mail to us is probably the most efficient way to do this. We can work out any questions about the process when you first contact us.

After that, you're free to come in and watch a class or two. We'll get your waivers signed and if you think we're a good fit you can sign up for the Resurgam HEMA Membership to pay club dues and become a student!

HEMA Alliance Membership - Before formally joining, All prospective Resurgam students must also be individual members of the HEMA Alliance. Click the button below and select the "memberships" tab. For the free introductory membership, select Intro Class Coverage. It lasts for two months. Once you're ready for commitment you can select a yearly membership.
