Please read this waiver carefully. If you do not understand anything in this waiver, please contact us for clarification. No enrolments will be accepted without express acceptance of this waiver.
I understand that any moneys paid in advance by me for the purpose of receiving instruction, once paid are not refundable. I consent that any pictures furnished by me or any purpose taken of me in connection with the International Karate Organization Kyokushinkaikan / North Bondi Kyokushin Pty Ltd (hereafter, “NBK”) can be used for publicity, promotion or television showing, and waive compensation in regard thereto. I understand that NBK reserves the right to terminate or suspend my membership, without recompense, for reasons of unacceptable behaviour or unreasonable length of absence to be determined by said corporation at its sole discretion. I solemnly swear that I am a law-abiding citizen and that at no time shall I ever use the techniques of karate or self-defense in a manner that will inflict personal injury or bodily harm to anyone, except in cases of emergency needs whereby my life and safety, or the lives and physical safety of others may depend upon my knowledge and application of these techniques. I will not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of any training session or other participation in karate.
*Furthermore, for myself, my spouse, legal representatives, heirs and assigns, hereby release, waive and forever discharge NBK, its officers, staff, interns and fellow members (collectively, the "Releasees") from any and all claim, demand, action or right of action, of whatever kind of nature, either in law or in equity, for damages for death, personal injury or property damage which I may have, or which may subsequently accrue to me, arising out of or connected in any way with my participation in the karate program at NBK, whether caused by the negligence of NBK or otherwise. I further release the Releasees from any claim whatsoever on account of first aid, treatment or services rendered to me during my participation in the karate program at NBK. I further understand that serious accidents occasionally occur in the sport of karate, and that persons engaging in karate occasionally sustain mortal or serious personal injuries and/or property damage as a consequence thereof. Knowing the risks of karate, nevertheless, I hereby agree to assume those risks and to release and hold harmless the Releasees who, through negligence or otherwise, might be liable to me, my spouse, legal representatives, heirs and assigns for damages. I expressly agree that the provisions of this release, waiver and indemnity are contractual (and not a mere recital) and are intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the State NSW, Australia, and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the remaining provisions shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
This waiver, release and assumption of risk is to be binding on my heirs and assigns.
