Liability Waiver and Release
In consideration of my visit and participation in training at Unicorn Jiu Jitsu (“UJJ”), I represent and agree as follows:
I hereby certify and represent that I am in sound mental and physical condition. I understand that participating in any martial arts or fitness activity may have inherent risks, including, but not limited to: muscle and/or joint injuries or soreness, neurological and/or vascular injuries, increased blood pressure and elevated stress levels, as well as the possibility of more serious injuries including fractures or torn ligaments and a remote possibility of crippling or death. In this regard, I am certifying that I am in reasonably good health and physical condition and am capable of taking part in such activity, regardless of whether or not I have received a physical examination or sought the advice of a physician. I agree that all mental and physical recommendations given to me, are undertaken by me, at the sole and absolute risk to myself and that UJJ shall not be liable for any claims for injuries or damages whatsoever to my person or property arising out of, or in connection with, the training and recommendations given by UJJ. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless UJJ, its employees and sub-contractors from all claims by, or liability to me. I also certify and represent that as a student of UJJ I agree to abide by all rules and regulations of UJJ, and that failure to do so may result in my expulsion from training and forfeiture of all moneys paid to UJJ.
I hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless UJJ, assigns, successors, employees, agents and all others connected with them from any and all liability, claims, actions, and damages sustained or incurred by participation in any class or event at UJJ arising in any manner whatsoever, including but not limited to an act or omission, whether negligent, intentional or otherwise caused by UJJ, its assigns, successors, employees, agents and all others connected with them.
UJJ may use for advertising and/or promotional purposes, my name, image, voice and/or biographical information on radio, TV broadcasts, social media, newspaper advertisements and/or any other medium in connection with my participation in UJJ classes and events without the payment of any additional compensation to me.
In the event that I am pregnant, I will not attend classes at UJJ until I have discussed the potential risks to me and my unborn child/fetus with my obstetrician. I agree that I will follow my obstetrician’s recommendations and on behalf of myself, my heirs, spouse, or any other interested party, hold harmless UJJ for any possible injury or illness to myself or my unborn child/fetus.
Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19 (“COVID-19”): COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, UJJ has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, UJJ cannot guarantee that I will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending UJJ may increase my risk of contracting COVID-19. By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending UJJ and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at UJJ may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, UJJ coaches, UJJ members, and their families. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I may experience or incur in connection with my attendance at UJJ or participation in UJJ classes (“Claims”). On my behalf, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless UJJ, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of UJJ, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any UJJ class.
If I am under 18 years of age, I warrant that I have disclosed my age to UJJ and in addition to my signature, have provided the signature of my parent or legal guardian below.
I have carefully read and understand the above information, and have not been coerced or pressured into signing this release.
