True Edge Academy currently has two branches that we simply call ‘True Edge Salt Lake’ and ‘True Edge South’. Each group normally meets twice weekly at the times and locations listed below, also check out the Calendar as occasionally a class is cancelled. There are swords, fencing masks and some additional protective gear available for beginners, but acquiring one’s own gear is encouraged. 

All participants must sign a standard martial arts waiver and a waiver for the HEMA Alliance (HEMAA). Monthly membership dues for True Edge Salt Lake is $30 dollars, which goes to the rental of the space and the purchase of club gear. Dues can be paid through TidyHQ or to an instructor. Club members will also be responsible for maintaining a HEMAA membership after their first two months. A HEMAA membership is only $26 a year and provides discounts for some HEMA vendors and events. 

Membership dues for True Edge South is $40 per semester, read more in the ‘A Beginner’s Guide to True Edge South’ upon joined their Facebook group.
