Any group can become a HEFFAC member if they are located within the Netherlands or Belgium and if they study and teach Historical European Martial Arts on a regular basis. Membership is independent of the legal form by which the group is organised.
• A HEFFAC member school is expected to participate in HEFFAC events and to take partial responsibility for organising affairs and collateral matters.
• Every HEFFAC member is expected to bring forth active representatives to physically attend HEFFAC meetings.
Individual practitioners who research or practice Historical European Martial Arts on an individual basis, but do not teach these arts regularly, cannot currently join HEFFAC. However, HEFFAC can advise you about finding a group to join, or about setting up your own group.
