1.ACTIVITY AND ASSOCIATED RISKS: I have voluntarily chosen to participate in the following activity either by myself or through person to person training and or coaching :

This waiver will serve to cover all activities and training methods created by or endorsed by VA whether performed in person or conducted remotely without a VA representative on site.

I understand that:

  • I verify that I have been medically cleared by a physician to participate in arduous physical activity to be conducted both indoors and outdoors on uneven and unpredictable terrain using a wide variety of heavy training implements and tools with potentially sharp edges. I represent and warrant that I have no medical condition that would prevent my participation in the activity;
  • the Activity is inherently arduous and can be hazardous due to unforeseeable factors or circumstances, and I may be exposed to a variety of physical or environmental dangers and hazards, including but not limited to some of the following: hazardous or venomous flora and fauna, dust and allergens, falls, fractures, concussions, strains, sprains, overexertion, overheating, hypothermia, dehydration, rhabdomyolysis, injuries due to my poor techniques or lack of fitness or experience or conditioning, death, equipment failures, and negligence of others;
  • as a consequence of these risks, I may be seriously hurt or disabled or may die from the resulting injuries, and my property may also be damaged;
  • I am responsible to secure permission to conduct any training or practice on any private property or public lands. I also am responsible for my own safety and well-being while conducting any such activity.

In consideration of the permission to participate in the Activity, I agree to the terms contained in this document.

I also understand that any equipment that I use, weather the property of VA or my own, I use at my own risk and that any such equipment is provided without any warranty or guarantee about its condition or suitability.

RELEASE OF LIABILITY:I hereby RELEASE VA, its employees, agents, officers, and contractors, the providers of any equipment used in the Activity, land owners, municipal or governmental providers of use permits, and their respective employees, officers, and directors (“the Released Parties”) FROM ALL LIABILITIES, CAUSES OF ACTION, CLAIMS, AND DEMANDS that arise in any way from any injury, death, loss, or harm that occur to me or to any other person or to any property during the Activity or in any way related to the Activity, including during transportation to or from the Activity. This RELEASE includes claims for the negligence of the Released Parties and claims for strict liability for abnormally dangerous activities. This RELEASE does not extend to claims for gross negligence, intentional or reckless misconduct, or any other liabilities that California law does not permit to be excluded by agreement. I also agree NOT TO SUE or make a claim against the Released Parties for death, injuries, loss, or harm that occurs during the Activity or are related in any way to the Activity.

I agree that in the event of my death or disability, the terms of this agreement, including the indemnification obligation in this Section, will be binding on my estate, and my personal representative, executor, administrator or guardian will be obligated to respect and enforce them.

AGREEMENT TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS: I agree to follow the guidelines and safety tips for the Activity provided to me and to follow directions given to me by any leaders of the Activity, including USING ALL OF THE PROTECTIVE GEAR that I am instructed or encouraged to use.

 INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS AND TRAINERS:I acknowledge that VA has no control over and assumes no responsibility for the actions of any independent contractors or trainers providing any services for the Activity.

USE OF MY LIKENESS:I understand that during the Activity I may be photographed or videotaped. To the fullest extent allowed by law, I waive all rights of publicity or privacy or pre-approval that I have for any such likeness of me or use of my name in connection with such likeness, and I grant to VA and its assigns permission to copyright, use, and publish (including by electronic means) such likeness of me, whether in whole or part, in any form, without restrictions, and for any purpose.

SEVERABILITY:I agree that the purpose of this agreement is that it shall be an enforceable RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNITY as broad and inclusive as is permitted by California law. I agree that if any portion or provision of this agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then the remainder will continue in full force and effect.

APPLICABLE LAW, FORUM & ATTORNEY’S FEES:This agreement is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California, without any reference to its choice of law rules. I agree that any dispute arising from this Agreement or in any way associated with the Activity shall be brought only in the Superior Court of Ventura County, in Ventura, California, or in the U.S. District Court for the District of Southern California, and I agree to the jurisdiction and venue of those courts for any such dispute.
