I realize that serious injury is commonplace in martial arts tournaments such as the one I am hereby entering; and that even death is a very real possibility.

I also realize that if I am injured, I might be disfigured, disabled and/or rendered unable to work again, realize that regardless of how these consequences might occur – whether it be the result of an opponentÕs actions, the action or inaction of a referee, the condition of the mats used, the conduct of a non-participant or some other reason -

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

Furthermore, if the competitor is a minor, I hereby certify that I am Parent or legal guardian of the above named minor; 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 on behalf of the minor and myself.
