Be an Instructor at SoCal Swordfight 2023

Interested in Being an Instructor at SoCal Swordfight 2023?

If you are, please let us know, and let us know about the classes you would like to teach.
We are open to offering classes within traditional Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) curriculum as well as some from outside of that scope (even from other disciplines) that will support the understanding and application of our art.

Submit your Application to be an Instructor along with the description of your class or classes by clicking here.

You can submit up to 4 potential classes, but we are really looking to offer as much quality curriculum and instruction as possible at this year's event from a plethora of instructors, so please don't feel the need to spread yourself too thin. 

We are making this form available so that anyone can submit to teach a class, with the goal of providing a larger pool of classes from a diverse group of instructors for our attendees to choose from.

Please consider the following before submitting this form:

  • Submission of a class is not a confirmation of being invited to teach a class at SoCal Swordfight 2023. We will review all classes and choose the ones that are most appropriate for our event. There are many reasons we may pass on a class, including having too many similar classes or having filled the slots on the days you are available to teach. You will be contacted to confirm the details of the classes and times you are selected for.

  • There is a second or alternative class description field included if you would like to submit two options. We will contact you via email to confirm your selection or discuss further details, by the end of September 2022.

  • The class submission form will remain active until September 15, 2022. Any submission that does not include a proper bio or class description will be asked to re-submit.

  • Instructors invited to teach at SoCal Swordfight are generally required to staff about 10 hours across the four days of the event, including any class time, in exchange for the full cost of registration being covered by SoCal Swordfight. You will be given a code that waives this fee when you register on the website.

  • Instructors who don’t perform this staffing requirement outlined above will need to register at the normal registration pricing.

  • Instructors who participate in tournaments will need to register for tournaments and pay tournament fees.
