I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated no matter the amount of care, caution, instruction or expertise is used without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity and while particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury does exist and is inherent in the activity. The risks include, among other things: Collision with other participants, the walls or other fixed objects; falling down; the failure of my own equipment, the failure of The IDSA’s equipment or the equipment of others; my own negligence or the negligence of others; and objects or conditions on the surface that might cause injury, broken bones, sprains, head and back injuries, abrasions, and bruises.
