I understand and expressly agree that my use of the BurnCraft Fitness LLC DBA Irish Knuckles MMA (one and the same entity “Irish Knuckles MMA”) facility or participation in Irish Knuckles MMA on-site and off-site services involves the risk of injury to me whether caused by me or not. I understand that these risks are inherent in physical activity and my use of the facility or off-site services, and can range from minor injuries to major injuries, including death. In consideration of my participation in the activities and use of the facility, exercise equipment and services offered by Irish Knuckles MMA, I understand and voluntarily accept full responsibility on my behalf for the risk of injury, illness or loss arising out of or related to my use of the facility including, without limitation, exercise equipment and participation in Irish Knuckles MMA exercise programs or use of other services, equipment and/or programs offered to members, guests (“non-paid participants”), and non-member participants (“drop-in participants”).
I understand that Irish Knuckles MMA provides its New Members with one pair of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) gloves upon registration and the payment of the $30 registration fee. I acknowledge that if the registration fee is waived, MMA gloves will not be provided, and I'm responsible for purchasing my own. I acknowledge that to further reduce a risk of injury, Irish Knuckles MMA also recommends the use of hand/wrist wraps in conjunction with the MMA gloves. Hand/wrist wraps are not provided by Irish Knuckles MMA. If I wish to participate in MMA Fitness, I agree to bring my own MMA or boxing gloves to every class. If I choose to participate in MMA Fitness without MMA or boxing gloves and/or hand & wrist wraps, I assume all risk and liability for injuries that may occur.
I acknowledge that if I choose to bring my child/children to any family fitness training offered by Irish Knuckles MMA, I agree that the contents of this liability waiver will apply to my child/children. Therefore, by signing this waiver, I assume all risk and liability for the injuries or illnesses that may occur to my child/children.
I acknowledge that some MMA Fitness drills in adult and kids training programs will involve contact between participants and/or the participant and the instructor via handheld pads, including but not limited to focus mitts, tombstone pads, kick shields and shin pads. I give consent to participate in such contact drills for myself and/or any underage participant under my care. I understand that there are risks of injury inherent to contact drills, and voluntarily accept full responsibility on my behalf and my child's/children's behalf for the injury, illness or loss that may occur.
I further agree that Irish Knuckles MMA, its agents, directors, employees, managers, members, landlords, and independent contractors, as well as its respective affiliated companies and the agents, directors, employees, managers, members and independent contractors of such entities will not be liable for any injury including, without limitation, personal, bodily, or mental injury, disability, death, economic loss or any damage to me, my spouse or domestic partner, my child, guests, unborn child, heirs, or relatives resulting from the negligent conduct or omission of Irish Knuckles MMA or anyone acting on their behalf, whether related to exercise or not.
I affirm that I am in good physical condition and have no medical reason or impairment that might prevent me from my intended use of Irish Knuckles MMA’s facility. I acknowledge that Irish Knuckles MMA strongly encourages all its clients, members, and participants to obtain a physical examination and clearance from a physician before starting any exercise or nutrition program or participating in any of its group fitness classes, any of its challenges and programs, or any special events and fitness/nutrition seminars. Irish Knuckles MMA did not give me medical advice before I joined and cannot give me medical advice after I join. I acknowledge that if I have any health or medical concerns now or after I join, it is my responsibility to discuss them with my doctor before using the facility and/or engaging in the Irish Knuckles MMA services. I acknowledge that Irish Knuckles MMA does not provide physical therapy, and I am the only one responsible for modifying exercises due to medical conditions or injuries.
I agree that Members/Guests/Non-Member participants are responsible for the care, safety, whereabouts, and actions of accompanying minors and/or guests inside and in the immediate vicinity of the BurnCraft Fitness facility, including but not limited to the parking lot.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, I do hereby forever release, waive and discharge BurnCraft Fitness LLC DBA Irish Knuckles MMA from any and all claims, demands, injuries, damages, actions or causes of action related to my use of the facility (collectively, “Claims”) against Irish Knuckles MMA or anyone acting on their behalf, and hereby agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Irish Knuckles MMA from and against any such Claims.
I further understand and acknowledge that Irish Knuckles MMA does not manufacture fitness or other equipment or products available in its facility and therefore Irish Knuckles MMA will not be held liable for defective equipment or products.
I understand and agree with the Irish Knuckles MMA billing and membership cancellation policies.
I understand my release of liability, assumption of risk and agreement to indemnify, defend and hold harmless and I have been given the opportunity to review and ask questions related to my use of the facility, exercise equipment, and any other equipment, as well as my participation in exercise programs or other services and/or programs offered to members, guests and non-member participants.
I agree to comply with Irish Knuckles MMA’s membership policies and club rules that may be communicated to me from time to time, whether in writing, electronically, through club signage or verbally. Irish Knuckles MMA may, in its sole discretion, modify any policy or club rule at any time and from time to time without advance notice.
