All of our classes require your review and consent to a few legal disclaimers.
Each person training must complete this waiver form prior to class.
Please read carefully and complete the form below:
The individual named below (referred to as "I" or "me") desires to participate in Training "Activity" provided by the FTA member (the "Member") (Reality Based Training, Firearms and Tactics - John Czerwinski, Critical Impact Group - Adrian Alan, Spartan Tactical - Craig French). As lawful consideration for being permitted by the Member to participate in the Activity, and the intangible value that I will gain by participating in the Activity, I agree to all the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement (this "Agreement").
I AM AWARE AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE ACTIVITIES ARE DANGEROUS ACTIVITIES AND INVOLVE THE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY, DEATH, AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE. I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANY INJURIES THAT I SUSTAIN MAY BE COMPOUNDED BY NEGLIGENT EMERGENCY RESPONSE OR RESCUE OPERATIONS OF THE MEMBER. I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I AM VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN THE ACTIVITIES WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THE DANGER INVOLVED AND HEREBY AGREE TO ACCEPT AND ASSUME ANY AND ALL RISKS OF INJURY, DEATH, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE MEMBER OR OTHERWISE.
I hereby expressly waive and release any and all claims, now known or hereafter known in any jurisdiction throughout the world, against the Member, its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, members, successors, and assigns (collectively, "Releasees"), on account of injury, death, or property damage arising out of or attributable to my participation in the Activities, whether arising out of the negligence of the Member or any Releasees or otherwise. I covenant not to make or bring any such claim against the Member or any other Releasee, and forever release and discharge the Member and all other Releasees from liability under such claims.
I shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Member and all other Releasees against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, actions, judgments, settlements, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses of whatever kind, including reasonable attorney fees, that are incurred by the indemnified party arising out of or related to any third-party claim alleging any bodily injury to or death of any person, or damage to real or tangible personal property caused by my negligence or other more culpable act or omission (including any reckless or willful misconduct) in connection with my participation in the Activities.
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be determined by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures ("Commercial Rules"). There shall be one arbitrator agreed to by the parties within twenty (20) days of receipt by respondent of the request for arbitration, or in default thereof appointed by the AAA in accordance with its Commercial Rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final, non-reviewable, and non-appealable and binding on the parties and may be entered and enforced in any court having jurisdiction. The place of arbitration shall be Los Angeles, California. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration without the prior written consent of both parties, unless to protect or pursue a legal right. The arbitrator will have no authority to award punitive damages or consequential damages.
I IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT I MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL ACTION, PROCEEDING, CAUSE OF ACTION, OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO MY PARTICIPATION IN THE ACTIVITIES. I CERTIFY AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I MAKE THIS WAIVER KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY.
This Agreement constitutes the sole and entire agreement of the Member and me with respect to the subject matter contained herein and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter. If any term or provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. This Agreement is binding on and shall inure to the benefit of the Member and me and their respective successors and assigns.
BY SIGNING, I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT I AM VOLUNTARILY GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE THE MEMBER.
By signing below I understand that I am of legal standing to possess a firearm in the United States and the State of which my training "Activity" occurs. I acknowledge the national, state, and local laws governing my use of firearms and confirm that I am in no violation of current laws and regulations. Should I be found to be in violation of these laws by Rapid Defense or the training partner, or not be legally able to possess a firearm in the United States or State of which my training "Activity" occurs, I understand that I will be reported to the agencies regulating such use with no right to a refund.
I hereby expressly waive and release any and all claims, now known or hereafter known in any jurisdiction throughout the world, against the Member, its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, members, successors, and assigns (collectively, "Releasees"), in the event of any violation of law and subsequent loss of property or monetary value stemming from such a violation.
For good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, I hereby grant Rapid Defense, LLC permission to use my likeness in a photograph in any and all of its publications, including but not limited to all of Rapid Defense, LLC's printed and digital publications. I understand and agree that any photograph using my likeness will become property of Rapid Defense, LLC and will not be returned. Should I opt out of this photo release, I am aware that I may still appear in photographs with my likeness concealed and not readily apparent.
I acknowledge that since my participation with Rapid Defense, LLC is voluntary, I will receive no financial compensation.
I hereby irrevocably authorize Rapid Defense, LLC to edit, alter, copy, exhibit, publish or distribute this photo for purposes of publicizing Rapid Defense, LLC's programs or for any other related, lawful purpose. In addition, I waive the right to inspect or approve the finished product, including written or electronic copy, wherein my likeness appears. Additionally, I waive any right to royalties or other compensation arising or related to the use of the photograph.
I hereby hold harmless and release and forever discharge Rapid Defense, LLC from all claims, demands, and causes of action which I, my heirs, representatives, executors, administrators, or any other persons acting on my behalf or on behalf of my estate have or may have by reason of this authorization.
