1. Clear any health issues or medications that are relevant to participation in the Ring of Steel classes,
events and training.

breathing, apparent injury) during my participation in any activity at the Ring of Steel classes, events

3. Use all practice weapons only for the fencing/stunt work/stage combat/martial practice use for which
they are intended and not to cause harm or damage of any nature.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK I understand that the inherent risks of participating in stunt work, stage combat,

Theatre and its instructors, from liability for any and all claims that arise from my participating in classes and
training aforementioned (including, but not limited to, organized training activities, classes, individual use of
equipment); and for any and all claims arising from the damage or loss or theft of personal property.
COVENANT NOT TO SUE AND INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT I agree not to sue the Ringstar Studio,
LLC, its directors, officers, employees and/or volunteers and the Ring of Steel, or its instructors for any
present or future claims. I also agree to hold harmless, defend and indemnify the Ringstar Studio, LLC and the
