Kid Tigerz LLC is committed to striving for a safe and injury free training environment. The instructors, directors, and staff will do their best to maintain a safe and accident free environment for both athletes and instructors. It is imperative that all athletes obey the safety rules and regulations of the classroom, and carefully follow the instructor’s directions. However, as with any physical sporting activity, martial arts is a potentially dangerous activity. Bumps, bruises, scrapes, and muscle soreness are common and most athletes will encounter this sort of minor injury periodically during their training. More serious injuries are possible and should be expected at some time during an athlete’s training, including sprains, strains, twists, cramps, and other injuries of similar magnitude. The possibility of more serious injuries also exists, including fractured bones, broken and torn ligaments, and dislocated joints, though these are more uncommon. Despite all safety precautions, there still remains the possibility of extremely serious injury, such as a crippling accident, and even death, although this is certainly not expected to ever occur in this martial arts program. Safety is not the sole responsibility of instructors and staff. All participants, including parents and observers, are responsible for their own safety and the safety of those around them. Athletes who violate the safety rules and regulations WILL be disciplined appropriately, up to and including dismissal from training. I have read and understand the above statement of risk and the rights and responsibilities of participants. I assume responsibility for my own safety (or the safety of my child). I understand and accept the physical risks of martial arts training. I understand that even if the instructor has informed me that no serious injury has ever happened in this organization, or with any of the instructors, that this does not mean that there is no possibility of harm to me (or my child). By assuming this risk, I completely absolve all instructors, staff, guests, athletes, landlords, management companies and any and all other related parties, of liability for my (or my child’s) harm, unless intentionally caused in criminal conduct.
