WAIVER OF LIABILITY
I do hereby submit my application for membership to ATILIM. Additionally, I hereby accept that ATILIM reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, with or without cause, to deny this application.
I certify that I will pay utmost caution for my own safety and the safety of those around me. I have the responsibility to train and conduct myself in a manner that helps all students and instructors remain safe. I will 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.
I hereby certify that I am in good health and have no physical/psychological problem that would preclude participation in ATILIM activities. I certify that I will not participate in ATILIM activities while under the influence of any drug, alcohol, or medication.
I understand that I have the right and responsibility to excuse myself from any exercise I believe will be harmful to me. I will evaluate each situation in the context of my skill and current physical condition and conduct each drill in a manner that is safe. If an instructor gives an instruction that is unsafe for me it is my responsibility to inform the instructor that the activity may be unsafe. Shall the instructor ask for an explanation, I am expected to provide one.
I may be touched by coaches or other participants while I am participating in martial arts training, and I consent to any touching that is customary in martial arts training, and conditioning ATILIM training involves a wide variety of skills. While participating in these skills, students may have contact with any portion of the body.
I understand the nature of physical contact in martial arts training, and 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 school 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.
I understand that ATILIM training is a potentially dangerous activity. Bumps, bruises, scrapes, scratches, and soreness are commonplace, and most students will encounter this sort of minor injury from time to time in their training. More serious injuries are possible, including sprains, strains, twists, cramps, and injuries of similar magnitude, and the student can be expected to encounter these injuries frequently. I hereby assume full responsibility and liability for all damages, injuries, and damages that I may sustain or incur while participating in or watching ATILIM activities.
I certify that I have health, accident, and liability insurance to cover any bodily injury or property damage that may be caused or suffered while participating in ATILIM training, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage to me. I further certify that I am willing to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I may have or am willing to assume and bear the costs of all risks that may be created, directly or indirectly, by any such condition.
I have read this release, waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, and I fully understand its terms. I understand that I have given up substantial and significant legal rights by signing it, and have signed it freely and voluntarily without any inducement, assurance, or guarantee having been made to me by ATILIM or any of its owners, managers, coaches, instructors, employees, personnel, and agents. I intend to be legally bound hereby.
I have read the above membership application and waiver, and agree to its terms.
