Statement of Informed Consent

The Undersigned (the study group participant) represents that the study group participant so named is in good physical condition, and has no physical or mental health problem that would preclude their participation in martial activities. Specifically, by signing this document you represent that the study group participant has no underlying cardiovascular, neurological or any other illness that would prevent or inhibit participation in martial arts in the same manner as a participant without such condition(s).

Swordfight Canada represents that its personnel have no expertise in diagnosing, examining or treating medical conditions of any kind or in determining the effect of any specified exercise on said medical condition(s). In agreeing to participate the study group participant fully understands and agrees that in any martial arts program, there is the possibility of accident, injury, disability or death. The study group participant therefore agrees to assume these risks and release and discharge the study group leaders, fellow members, Academie Duello Ltd and sponsors/owners of the premises, activities, etc., and their respective servants, agents, officers and all other participants in the stated activities of and from all claims, demands, actions and causes of action of any sort for injuries sustained to the study group participant’s person and/or property during the study group participant’s presence on the premises and the study group participant’s participation in the stated activities.

The study group participant gives consent to Swordfight Canada and its representatives to obtain medical care at your expense from any licensed physician, hospital, or clinic for any injury or illness that may arise during activities associated with Swordfight Canada. The study group participant and the authorized signer agrees to be bound by Swordfight Canada: equipment, facility and safety rules.

Adult Safety Waiver

  1. I acknowledge that martial arts are a potentially dangerous activity. The possibility of bumps, bruises, scrapes, soreness, sprains twists, related injuries or even death is possible. I completely absolve Swordfight Canada and any party acting on their behalf of responsibility for any injury I may sustain during any activities during any Swordfight Canada events or classes.
  2. I acknowledge that physical contact with my body is both part of practicing and learning this martial art. The chest buttocks, groin, or any part of the body may be contacted by any part of the training partner’s body during training of a specific technique or incidentally contacted while performing a martial arts technique targeting another portion of the body.
  3. I understand that Instructors may adjust or manipulate any part of my body to assist in the proper application and understanding of a technique.
  4. I understand that I have the right to withdraw from any exercise or drill for any reason and at any time.
  5. If the conduct of an instructor or training partner appears inappropriate, the student should inform a Swordfight Canada director privately. If the conduct of an instructor or any training partner appears criminal, then a director should be informed and the authorities may be notified either by the student or the director, or both.
  6. I agree not to bring any claim or suit against Swordfight Canada, instructors, staff, guests, students, landlord, or any other parties for any injury or harm sustained by any event short of a criminal act, and then only the criminal shall be the subject of such a claim. I further agree that I will not cause to be brought, nor encourage a claim or suit. I also agree not to cooperate in the bringing of such a suit or claim except insofar as I may be legally required to do so. Finally, I shall indemnify Swordfight Canada, instructors, staff, guests, students, and any and all additional defendants covered by this agreement for all judgments, costs, attorney fees and other expenses incurred as a result of a breach of this agreement.
  7. If any clause, sentence, phrase or statement in this document is found unenforceable or invalid by any Court of law, the remainder of this document shall remain valid enforceable and the invalid clause, sentence, phrase or statement shall be considered struck from the document.
