THE UNDERSIGNED PROMISES TO PAY the amount budgeted in equal monthly installments as indicated in the membership terms above. All subsequent installments will be due consecutively each month on the effective date of this agreement and will be paid DIRECTLY to Poolesville Self Defense. At the end of my agreement I will be charged monthly until a request to cancel is received.
I UNDERSTAND that under the terms of this agreement, the school obligates itself to furnish me with competent instruction and suitable facilities for teaching lessons. All class sessions are supervised by qualified personnel trained in the procedure and traditions of the Martial Arts. The regular hourly tuition is $150.00 per hour; however, a substantial discount has been provided me by virtue of enrolling in a regular group course.
THE STUDENT (undersigned) hereby represents that he/she is physically fit to receive and participate in the prescribed course of instruction.
I UNDERSTAND and agree that the school will not be held liable for injuries, damages, etc., not caused by or resulting from the negligence of the owners, operators, employees or persons in charge of such establishment. (This refers to myself and or my child if signing for minor) I will faithfully comply with all rules and regulations of the school and the traditions of the Martial Arts. I further understand that failure to complete the training does not relieve me of my obligation to pay the tuition in full. My membership is for a period of time, not lessons.
THE UNDERSIGNED AGREES to receive and participate and the school agrees to teach lessons. I understand that at the end of my agreement, I will then be charged monthly until a written request (30 days notice) to cancel is received.
