In consideration of permission to use, today and on all future dates, the property, facilities, staff, equipment, services, and programs at Point MMA, and others not named in this Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement, I, for myself, or for the minor participant named below, my heirs, children, parents, guardians, executors, personal representatives, administrators, successors and assigns, do hereby release, acquit, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue Point MMA, or any of the directors, officers, managers, employees, agents, affiliates, attorneys, spouses, heirs, executors, administrators, successors, assigns, organizers, volunteers, sponsors, affiliated organizations, coaches, instructors, managers, trainers or doctors, or any other persons involved from liability from any and all claims including the negligence of Point MMA resulting in personal injury, accidents or illnesses (including death), and property loss arising from, but not limited to, participation in activities, classes, observation, and use of facilities, premises, or equipment.
ASSUMPTION OF RISKS
Physical activity by its very nature carries with it certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. Point MMA has facilities for and provides for martial arts activities. Some of these activities involve strenuous exertions of strength using various muscle groups, some involve quick movements involving speed and change of direction, and others involve sustained physical activity which places stress on the cardiovascular system.
I certify that I, for myself or the parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) of the minor participant named below, am familiar with martial arts and training in connection with martial arts and other activities, including but not limited to MMA, and self-defense. I am aware, acknowledge and agree that by the very nature of martial arts, and the physical contact involved, there is a high risk of injury related to participating in martial arts, and I assume all risk relating to my participation in martial arts or other activities in Point MMA.
The specific risks vary from one activity to another, but the risks range from (1) minor injuries such as scratches, bruises, and sprains, (2) major injuries such as eye injury or loss of sight, joint or back injuries, heart attacks, broken bones, and concussion, (3) catastrophic injuries including paralysis and death.
INDEMNIFICATIONS AND HOLD HARMLESS
I further agree, for myself or the minor participant named below, to INDEMNIFY AND HOLD the directors, officers, instructors, volunteers, sponsors, and affiliated organizations HARMLESS from any and all claims, actions, suits, procedures, costs, expenses, damages, and liabilities, including attorney’s fees brought as a result of my involvement at Point MMA and to reimburse them for any such expenses incurred.
My physician has examined me, or the minor participant named below and certified that I or the minor participant named below am in good physical condition and have no disease or injury that would impair my performance or physical condition in training for or participating in Point MMA. I recognize that if I have any existing injuries that may affect my performance, I cannot participate in Point MMA without a report from my physician authorizing my participation, and I verify that if I have any such injuries, the requisite report is attached to this form. I further certify that no coach, doctor, nurse, athletic trainer or other person has advised me, or the minor participant named below, not to participate in Point MMA.
AUTHORIZATION FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT
Further, in the event I, or the minor participant named below, am injured, during my participation in Point MMA activities, I, or the parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) of the minor participant named below, hereby grant permission to any and all of the licensed athletic trainers, emergency medical technicians, nurses or doctors to provide me with medical assistance and treatment and, if needed, to transport me to a hospital or other treatment facility. For myself and for my heirs, children, parents, guardians, executors, personal representatives, administrators, successors and assigns, I forever release, acquit, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue Point MMA, or any of the organizers, volunteers, sponsors, affiliated organizations, coaches, instructors, managers, athletic trainers, emergency medical technicians, nurses or doctors, or any other persons involved any injury I sustain or suffer in connection with Point MMA or said medical assistance or treatment. I accept responsibility to pay for any and all financial obligations incurred as a result of any medical assistance or treatment provided in connection with any injuries or illness that I may sustain in Point MMA.
PHOTOGRAPHY, VIDEO, AND PROMOTIONAL RELEASE
For myself, or the minor participant named below, and for my heirs, children, parents, guardians, executors, personal representatives, administrators, successors and assigns, I, or the parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) of the minor participant named below, hereby gives permission an authorization to Point MMA and its designees, agents and applicable media vendors to use and reproduce any still photographs, videotape or any other media forms that include my name or likeness, or the name or likeness of the minor participant named below, and use or reproduce any recording or other media form that includes my voice, in any approved Point MMA publication, Website, podcast, audio recording, promotional materials, video medium (including but not limited to video clips) or any other medium. The undersigned releases and hold harmless Jiu-Jitsu International, and their designees, agents and applicable media vendors from any and all claims of libel, slander, invasion of the right of privacy or publicity, or any other claim based on the use of my name, likeness or voice, and any and all damages, costs and expenses that may directly or indirectly arise from the use of my name, likeness or voice.
TERMINATION OF PARTICIPATION
I, or the parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) of the minor participant named below, understand and agree to abide by all policies, rules, and regulations. Participant understands that, in its sole discretion, Point MMA or its representative may terminate my or the minor participant named below participation at any time should my actions or general behavior impede the operation of Point MMA or the rights or welfare of any person.
