Risk Agreement

ADVISORY OF RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Safety is not the sole responsibility of instructors and staff. Everyone at the event is responsible for their own safety and the safety of those around them.

All participants have the right and responsibility to excuse themselves from any exercise they believe will be harmful to them. All participants must evaluate each situation in the context of their skill and current physical condition, and conduct each drill in a manner that is safe. If a staff member gives an instruction that is unsafe for the participant, it is the participant’s responsibility to inform a staff member that the activity may be unsafe. A staff member will routinely excuse the participant from unsafe exercises and drills. The staff member may ask for an explanation, and the participant is expected to provide one.

All participants have the responsibility to train and conduct themselves in a manner that helps all participants and staff remain safe. participants must give those who are training enough room to avoid interfering and avoid being accidentally struck by someone else practicing, which is especially important when others are practicing with weapons.

In the event of an injury, participants have the right and responsibility to evaluate the extent of harm, stopping what they are doing even if it includes a partner, and determining if it is safe to continue. Unless a participant is certain that further practice will not create or worsen a problem, all participants are encouraged to stop what they are doing and inform a staff member. In the event of a serious injury or the appearance of a serious injury, all participants, instructors, staff and visitors notably parents, have the right to call a stop to a particular training exercise.

If a participant notes an unsafe training situation, which may include a participant performing a skill incorrectly, a participant not showing due regard for the safety of others, a defective piece of training equipment, a potentially dangerous obstacle or condition on the floor, or anything else that may cause or lead to harm of the participants, instructors, staff, visitors or guests, then the participant is expected to correct the situation if it is within his ability or to notify an instructor or staff member immediately. If something is simple to correct, such as removing an obstacle from the floor, the participant should correct the situation. If the situation may require the authority of the instructor or staff, or if it is not a simple matter, then the instructor or staff member should be notified immediately.

ASSUMPTION OF RESPONSIBILITIES AND RISK

Martial Arts training is a potentially dangerous activity. Bumps, bruises, scrapes, scratches and soreness are commonplace, and most participants will encounter this sort of minor injury from time to time in their competitions. More serious injuries are possible, including sprains, strains, twists, cramps, and injuries of similar magnitude, and the participant can be expected to encounter these injuries frequently. The possibility of more serious injuries exists, including fractured cones, broken bones, torn ligaments, though not all participants encounter such serious injuries. There remains, despite safety precautions, the remote possibility of crippling or death, though this is certainly not expected in this martial arts event.

In understand the above statement of risk, and I understand the rights and responsibilities of participants. I assume responsibility for my own safety (or the safety of my child), understanding and accepting the risks involved with martial arts training. Even if a staff member has informed me that no serious injuries have ever happened in this event or with any of the staff, I understand that this does not mean that there is not possibility of harm. By assuming this risk, I completely absolve all instructors, staff, guests, participants, landlords, management companies and any and all other parties of liability for my harm, unless intentionally caused in criminal conduct.

NOTICE AND CONSENT TO INSTRUCTORS

This event seeks to make use of highly trained professional instructors, with both expertise and experience both in the art(s) that we teach and in teaching. Classes may be taught by the head instructor or any other qualified instructor. Should an instructor be unavailable for a given class, a junior instructor, senior student or guest instructor may teach. The choice of the instructor is left to the discretion of the event organizer.

I understand that I may not always have the instructor I desire, but I shall seek to learn from whoever is teaching, to show the respect due to the position of teacher to whomever is teaching, and to conduct myself in accordance with the etiquette established at this event. I understand that I have the responsibility for my own safety without regard to who may be teaching the class I specifically consent to any instructor of the event, instructors or staff feel are sufficiently qualifies by standards they set to teach the class. I specifically understand and agree that the full force of this document applies no matter who is teaching.

NOTICE OF PHYSICAL CONTACT

Complete martial arts training involves a wide variety of skills. While practicing these skills, participants may have contact with any portion of the body. The groin may be the target of kicks, strikes or grabs. The chest, buttocks, groin or any part of the body may be contacted by any part of the training partner’s body during training with martial arts techniques, or incidentally contacted while performing a martial arts technique which targets another portion of the body. When male and female participants train together, or when adult and minor participants train together, and in any other training combination, the purpose and intent of the event, instructors and staff is to provide an environment for all participants to learn and practice martial arts and self-defense. Participants are expected to conduct themselves appropriately at all times to ensure the best training results for everyone.

Should any participant feel that a partner is engaging in contact beyond the scope of the event, or a partner is taking undue and unacceptable advantage of contact, or if a participant is made uncomfortable by any exercise or partner, then that participant has the right to withdraw from the exercise, drill, or competition. If the contact of a partner appears inappropriate, the participant should inform a staff member privately. If the conduct of the partner or any partner appears criminal, then a staff member should be informed and the authorities may be notified either by the participant or the staff, or both.

CONSENT TO PHYSICAL CONTACT

I understand the nature of physical contact in martial arts training, and I understand that I have the right to immediately withdraw from any exercise or drill in which the contact of any party seems beyond the scope of training and makes me uncomfortable. I agree to abide by the event etiquette in all manners pertaining to training, and I shall not in any way conduct myself inappropriately or take inappropriate advantage of the contact martial arts training allows.

INDEMNIFICATION BY PARENTS

Applicable only to parents enrolling a minor child.

I agree not to bring any claim or suit against the event organizer, instructors, staff, guests, students, landlord, participants, or any other parties on behalf of my child for any injury or harm sustained by any event short of a criminal act, and then only the criminal shall be the subject of such a suit. I further agree that I will not cause to be brought, nor encourage a claim or suit. I also agree not to cooperate in the bringing of such a suit or claim except insofar as I may be legally required to do so. Finally, I shall indemnify the event organizer, instructors, staff, guests, students, participants, and any and all additional defendants covered by this agreement for all judgments, costs, attorney fees and other expenses incurred as a result of a breach of this agreement.

ARBITRATION CLAUSE

Should any dispute arise between me, my child, or anyone acting on behalf of my child, regarding this event, then I specifically agree that the dispute shall be resolved in binding arbitration. Should a suit be filed in Court, I specifically authorize the Court to order the case to a binding arbitration.

SEVERABILITY

If any clause, sentence, phrase or statement is found unenforceable or invalid by any Court of Law, the remainder of the document shall remain valid enforceable and the invalid clause, sentence, phrase or statement shall be struck from the document.

DURABILITY

This document is effective from the date the event tickets are purchased with no expiration. Furthermore, the terms of this document are retroactive to the beginning of the event if this document was signed after that date.

AUTHORITY TO TREAT

I, give the instructors, staff and responsible adults the power to authorize medical or other treatment of the participant named subject to the limitations listed below, if any. If I am not the named participant, I am the parent, guardian or responsible adult for the named participant and I have legal right to grant this power. Treatment may be made without regard to whether I or any other parent, guardian or responsible person has been contacted or has consented to the specific treatment, provided it does not conflict with the limitations outlined below. This authority begins on the date signed and continues indefinitely.

By granting my authorization, I assume responsibilities for all decisions made, provided they are reasonable decisions under the circumstances based on the knowledge and understanding of the person making the decisions, and I trust their judgment and offer the benefit of the doubt to them in any claim or legal proceeding. This presumption may only be overcome by clear and convincing evidence that they acted with malice or willful gross negligence, and if so they may still be liable.

I understand that the instructors, staff, senior students, or others may have some skills in first aid, CPR, and at their discretion, I authorize them to use those skills and techniques to assist in any circumstance in which they judge their skills would be necessary or helpful.
