Risk of bodily harm

I hereby assume full responsibility and liability for all damages, losses, and personal injury, including death, that may be sustained by me or incurred while participating in or watching the Tournament/Event.

I acknowledge that serious injury is commonplace in combat sports events such as the one I am hereby entering and that death is a possibility. I also acknowledge that if I am injured, I might be disfigured, disabled, and/or rendered unable to work again. By entering into this competition, I agree to and fully accept and assume liability for any and all injuries that I may incur and expressly give up and waive any and all claims that I or anyone acting on my behalf or through me might have against the organizer, it's board members, the promoters, operators, sponsors, officials, participants, non-participants, or volunteers for any injury regardless of its nature, effect or impact on me as a result of my participation and/or presence at the Tournament/Event.

I authorize and agree to hold harmless, whatever medical personnel may be present at the tournament/event, to take any action necessary, should I become injured.

I represent that I am in good health (fit to compete); that I am not presently, nor will I participate while under the influence of any drug or medication; that no one affiliated with this tournament has encouraged me to enter or made any representations regarding my fitness or ability to participate; that I have read and understood every provision of this release; and that I am legally competent to and freely enter into this waiver, release, and assumption of risk agreement.

Privacy and personal data: I understand that by using my Smoothcomp account to register for this event, I am giving the organizer the right to contact me via newsletters, event reminders, and more general promotions of offers or information.

I understand that I am responsible for checking and tracking my registration information for the event on the website on the registration list for weight, belt, academy, age division, and name information by the specified registration check day.

I understand that tickets might be sold to spectators to watch the event, that news media and others might cover the tournament, and that it may be videotaped or otherwise shown to audiences worldwide. I hereby expressly and irrevocably forever consent to have my likeness delivered, publicized, commented and/or reported on; and I do not expect to, and in fact, waive any compensation I might otherwise be entitled to as a result thereof disputes.

The organizer hereby expressly reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, with or without cause to deny a potential athlete/competitor's registration/application for permission to compete in the event. The terms athlete and/or competitor may be used interchangeably. If any dispute arises out of or in any way related to your participation in this event, by entering your registration application, you are hereby expressly waiving and giving up your right to file a lawsuit in the city, state, or federal court and a trial by jury. As used above, the word "dispute" refers to anything, including injury claims (which you have already waived) that may have occurred or your claim did not occur at the event.

In the case of minors under 18 years old; suppose the competitor is a minor. In that case, I hereby certify that I am the parent and/or legal guardian of the minor named above, who has been given my express permission to compete in the event we register. And that I have read and understood every provision of the release of liability and that I am legally competent to and freely enter into this release of liability and assume all risk on behalf of the minor (competitor) named herein and any and all successors, assigns or any other representative acting upon the minor's behalf.
