Terms and Conditions
The use of the term student is referring to anyone who participates in Training with Tiger Martial Arts, which could be a child, or an adult, male or female.
1.0: Attendance and punctuality
It is of the utmost importance that the student is punctual to each lesson. If it is your child that is training, and they arrive before the instructor has arrived on site, it is required that you please remain with them until a member of staff is present. Until a member of staff is on site you are responsible for their safety and well-being. Should you choose to leave them unattended, we hold no responsibility for them. It is also important that you arrive promptly and on time to collect your child. Many of our instructors have other classes to teach and need to leave immediately after the class. If your lateness inconveniences other customers, or our instructor, we reserve the right to charge the cost of loss of earnings to you.
1.1: By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, I hereby agree that should I drop my child off early to their lesson, I am responsible for my child should anything happen, and that Tiger Martial Arts and its owners, operators, officers, employees, instructors, students, or agents hold no responsibility over your child until the lesson has begun, and they are in the training room with the instructor. I also agree that if I do not collect my child at the specified time, I may incur a charge related to inconvenience caused and loss of earnings.
1.2: By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, I hereby agree that if I do not collect my child at the specified time, I will incur a charge of whatever Tiger Martial Arts deems acceptable for the inconvenience caused and loss of earning, to be demanded at any time.
2.0: Change of location and time.
Tiger Martial Arts reserves the right to change the time or location of any class for any reason. Should the student be unable to attend following any changes made, although we reserve the right to retain payment for the remainder of the month, upon request we will often refund the remaining month’s payment. In the unlikely event that a class is cancelled for any reason, a refund would not usually be offered, although the student is welcome to attend any other classes in the area, provided those classes are open to all Tiger Martial Arts students and are open to their age bracket.
2.1: By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, I am fully aware that changes may be made, and it is my responsibility to accommodate to these changes.
Payment will be made monthly via Direct Debit on the 1st of each calendar month. Failure to pay will incur a charge of £5 for the first month of non-payment, and £10 for any following months that the payment owed is not paid. After one week we will make arrangements to contact you about the payment. Should you refuse to pay within one month then you forfeit the students right to participate in training, and the student will unfortunately not be allowed to train with us until all payments and fees have been paid.
3.1: By agreeing to these terms and conditions, I hereby agree that Tiger Martial Arts has the right to refuse service to those who are not up to date with payments, as well as for those who continually make late payments.
We reserve the right to discontinue training for any student that we deem as persistently disobedient. Should we feel we are unable to control the students behaviour, and that the child’s behaviour is detrimental to the other students training, then we will be in contact and the student will be dismissed from further lessons. Discipline is embedded in the culture of martial arts, and traditionally pressups would be given as reasonable punishment, to help reinforce good behaviour. This is made clear to the students from their first class, so that they know what is to be expected.
4.1: By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, I hereby agree that pressups can be used as reasonable punishment, and should the students behaviour be uncontrollable, then they will be dismissed from future lessons.
5.0: Image Consent
We would like to take pictures, and occasionally video the students performing their Martial Arts for promotional and advertising purposes. The photos will always be appropriate, and available for the customer to view upon request. The images, be they photo or video, will be stored in a safe and secure place.
5.1: , I hereby grant permission to Tiger Martial Arts and Nicholas Henshall the use of the student’s image, likeness and voice, recorded in digital format, without payment. I understand the images and film may be edited, exhibited and distributed through any media that Tiger Martial Arts/Nicholas Henshall sees fit.
6.0: Personal Belongings
We cannot be held responsible for any personal belongings lost or stolen during a training session. It is strongly advised that anything of value be left at home. Should a child need to contact a parent, or parent need to contact a child, then the instructor will have a phone.
7.0: Health and Safety
Should the student suffer from any of the following medical problems, please consult with your doctor to ensure that intense physical exercise will not pose a problem to the student. In addition, please inform us via email so that we may take a note. We must be informed of any conditions before any instruction is carried out.

Dizziness, or loss of unconsciousness during exercise
Joint problems, such as arthritis, that is aggravated by exercise
Chest pains when exercising
Any prescription medication being taken

7.1: Should the student suffer from anything on this list, please inform the instructor immediately to discuss what action should be taken to ensure safety and well-being. It is advised that you consult a doctor if you suffer with any of these conditions before participating to ensure it is safe.
7.2: By agreeing to these terms and conditions, I agree that I have consulted a doctor recently and the doctor has agreed it is safe. I also agree that I have informed the instructor or Tiger Martial Arts of any medical problem the student has, and that I choose to let the student continue in this class at my own risk. I also agree that I understand fully that the student will be participating in a semi contact sport. I hereby agree that I would like the student to participate in what can be intense physical exercise, including, but not limited to, running, stretching, aerobic and resistance exercise, all of which can result in injury or in incredibly unlikely circumstances, death.
8.0: Agreement and Liability Waiver
I hereby agree that I have discussed any health problems with an instructor. I agree that I hold responsibility for any unlikely injury to the student and that the owners, operators, officers, employees, instructors, students, or agents at Tiger Martial Arts cannot be held responsible for these injuries or death.
I hereby agree to the following:
1. I am fully aware that the Martial Arts used will be unarmed combat, and that semi contact will be used during the session, which could result in accidental injury, or in incredibly unlikely circumstances, death.
2. I understand that from time to time, there is the occasional use of safe versions of weapons, for example, foam nunchaks, wooden swords, bo staff, lightsabers, and I consent to the students use of these.
3. I understand that the student will be participating in strenuous physical exercise that could lead to minor or serious injury to either the student, or that in unlikely circumstances that myself or my child could inflict these injuries on another student. These injuries could include bruises, abrasions, broken bones and cartilage, concussion, organ damage, or extremely unlikely circumstances, death.
4. I understand that the injuries caused in paragraphs 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3 could be inflicted accidentally, but also in extremely unlikely circumstances, through inadvertence or negligence, or malfunctioning equipment.
5. I understand that the risk to the injuries described in paragraphs 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3 cannot be reduced without severely limiting the instruction and class technique offered.
6. I understand that no one at Tiger Martial Arts has given the student the authority to use any of the techniques taught to the student on any person other than in training, matches, or demonstrations, where the student and the instructor have agreed that they are sufficiently trained and qualified to do so. I also understand that the student does not have the authority to demonstrate their martial arts outside of the lesson, or in the absence of an instructor.
7. After having fully read the risks to injury and death, I hereby waive my right to a lawsuit in the unlikely event of injury or death during a lesson with Tiger Martial Arts, or outside of the lesson while using the Martial Arts taught.
8. I hereby agree that no legal action shall be taken up Tiger Martial Arts, its owners, operators, officers, employees, instructors, students, agents, or any other connections that Tiger Martial Arts has.
