participant letter of understanding

Read carefully and complete this form prior to participation in Exuberant Animal training events:

Exuberant Animal training events are highly focused, engaging and immersive. All our events are based on the martial art model and are conducted by “dojo rules,” a set of behavior guidelines that are common in martial art studios around the world:

  • respect for people, process and place

  • full end-to-end participation

  • everyone works with everyone else

  • simple, clean, orderly empty cup, ready to learn

The Exuberant Animal experience is highly physical and you’ll be expected to engage to the best of your ability. This is an athletic experience: You’ll sweat. You’ll work your legs, hips and core. You’ll be sore for a few days afterwards. You’ll be encouraged to modify your participation to adjust for any pain or injury, but you’ll also be expected to try your best.

Electronic devices, including phones and laptops are not permitted at Exuberant Animal events. (In the case of long training events, short periods of access will be permitted.)
