  • You enter this agreement with the knowledge that martial arts and fitness training are both potentially dangerous activities. 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. The possibility of more serious injuries exists, including fractured cones, broken bones, torn ligaments, though not all students 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 and fitness class.
  • Everyone (members, guests and staff) in class is responsible for their own safety and the safety of those around them.  Members have the right and responsibility to excuse them self from any exercise they believe will be harmful to them even if they are working with a partner.
