Note: Membership subscription privilege is at the Discretion of the ARMA Directors and may be revoked with refund without cause at any time. After one year of Associate status members may be subject to a review of their participation before having renewals approved. The Member or Applicant understands and accepts that the ARMA is an organization not only dedicated to understanding and reviving the forgotten martial sciences of Europe, but also an educational organization committed to teaching and informing the public about our subject. As such, members of the ARMA often give presentations before children and youth organizations. It is mandatory, therefore, that ARMA not accept as members any who have been convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude or felony with a minor. Acknowledgment of this represents knowing affirmation of the policy by the Member or Applicant.
