Terms of Service
Last Updated: April 17, 2020
YOUR USE OF THE TSMA SITE CONSTITUTES YOUR EXPRESS AGREEMENT TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE, YOU MUST NOT USE OR MUST IMMEDIATELY TERMINATE YOUR USE OF THE TSMA SITE. STRICT TIME LIMITATIONS MAY APPLY TO YOUR CLAIM. IF YOU FAIL TO COMPLY WITH CERTAIN FILING REQUIREMENTS WITHIN THESE TIME LIMITS, YOU MAY WAIVE YOUR RIGHTS FOREVER. IF YOU NEED A LAWYER, CONTACT AN EXPERIENCED LAWYER IN YOUR STATE.
PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL DOCUMENT CAREFULLY. TSMA Franchise Systems, Inc. d/b/a Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts (together with our affiliates, “TSMA”, “we”, or “us”) provides online martial arts classes and related services, content, and features through TSMA websites, including but not limited to www.tsk.com (collectively, the “TSMA Site” or “Site”) and TSMA-controlled social media pages (including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Tiktok, Reddit, Snapchat, Pinterest, and Twitter). By registering as a member or by visiting, browsing, or using the TSMA Site or TSMA-controlled social media pages (collectively, the “Services”), you (“you” or “user”) accept and agree to be bound by these Terms of Service (“Terms” or “Agreement”), which forms a binding agreement between you and TSMA. TSMA franchisees also provide in-person classes at various physical locations; the written agreement between you and the TSMA franchisee at the in-person location will govern the goods and services provided at such location.
THESE TERMS REQUIRE ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS. ALSO, THESE TERMS SET FORTH SPECIFIC REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU. PLEASE SEE SECTIONS 14, 15, AND 20 TO LEARN MORE.
If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms, you may not access or use the Services. Certain elements of the Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions specified from time to time; your use of those elements of the Services is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms by reference.
- Changes to these Terms
- Who May Use the Services
Age Requirement. You must be at least 18 years old, or the age of legal majority in your jurisdiction of residence, to register with and use the Services. However, minors may participate in online classes, provided that (a) they and their parent/guardian have signed a TSMA waiver and release; and (b) their parent/guardian supervises the minors’ participation by allowing the minors to use and access the Services only through the parent or guardian’s account.
Residence Requirement. You must reside in the United States or Canada to use the Services; provided, however, that you will abide by applicable law in your jurisdiction, even where such law may limit or prohibit your full use of, or access to, the Services.
We may, in our sole discretion, refuse to offer the Services to any person or entity and change the eligibility criteria at any time. You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you, and the right to access and use the Services is revoked where these Terms or where use of the Services is prohibited or conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation. Further, the Services are offered only for your personal, non-commercial use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party.
- License to Use the Services
Subject to your compliance with these Terms and solely for so long as you are permitted by us to access and use the Services, TSMA grants you a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-sublicensable revocable right and license to access and use the Services for your own personal, non-commercial purposes. This license includes the right to view Content (defined below) available on the Services for your personal, non-commercial home use only. The periods during which you can view each piece of Content will vary based on the rights availability of such Content and the terms of your subscription (if any). The Services may include different Content offerings, features, and usage rules, which will be explained to you during your sign-up or in other materials made available to you.
This license grant is subject to your compliance with these Terms. This license will remain in effect unless and until you violate these Terms or this license is terminated by you or TSMA. All rights not expressly granted by TSMA in these Terms are reserved.
To enjoy full access to the Services, you must first register for an account on the TSMA Site. Registration makes you a “member”; however, participation in certain classes and access to certain Content (defined below) may be subject to additional fees and/or to a subscription agreement that are separate from registration. You must have an account registered on our website in order to sign up for classes. Additional information about our classes is available on the TSMA site.
Profile Information and Picture. You may not use someone else’s name, or any name, location, other public profile information or image that violates any third party rights, is against the law (including but not limited to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act), or that is offensive, obscene or otherwise objectionable (in TSMA’s sole discretion).
Account Security. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your account, including any activity by authorized or unauthorized users. You may not allow others to use your account except as expressly permitted herein. You must safeguard the confidentiality of your password, and if you are using a device that others have access to, log out of your account after using the Services. If you become aware of an unauthorized access to your account, change your password and notify us immediately.
Publicly Visible User Information. If a portion of the Services allow users to upload User Content, the users’ Usernames are publicly visible when you interact with certain portions of the Services, which means that other TSMA users will be able to view your username. YOU MUST NOT USE PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION OF ANY MINOR IN YOUR USERNAME OR (i) OTHER PUBLICLY VISIBLE CONTENT YOU POST TO THE TSMA SITE OR (ii) OTHER CONTENT POSTED TO PORTIONS OF THE TSMA SITE THAT ARE VISIBLE TO OTHER REGISTERED USERS.
- Membership Structure and Fees
TSMA will provide information on its then-current online membership and subscription requirements on the TSMA Site and/or by other means through the Services. Features and prices are subject to change.
Free Trials. On occasion, we may offer free trials to particular Content, subject to specific terms explained during your sign-up. We reserve the right to determine eligibility for free trials, which may vary based on factors including the Content selected, how recently you redeemed a free trial, and whether the Content is part of a combined offering. Certain limitations may also exist with respect to combining free trials with any other offers.
It is very important to understand that you will not receive a notice from TSMA that your free trial has ended and that payment for your subscription is due. If you wish to avoid charges to your payment method, you must cancel your subscription prior to midnight Eastern Time on the last day of your free trial period. Because the Services are offered in multiple time zones, for consistency, a “day” for purposes of these Terms begins at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time and ends at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time of that same calendar day. You may cancel your subscription at any time as described in the “Account Deletion/Cancellation and Refunds“ section of these Terms. If you cancel your subscription during a free trial or while using a promotion, cancellation may be effective immediately.
Promotions. If we offer you a promotion (e.g., a promotional price or bundled subscription), the specific terms of the promotion will be disclosed during your sign-up or in other materials provided to you. We will begin billing your payment method for your subscription at the then-current, non-promotional price after your promotion ends unless you cancel prior to the end of your promotion or unless otherwise disclosed.
- Termination; Account Deletion
Term. These Terms begin on the date you first use the Services and continue as long as you have an account with us and/or continue to use the Services.
Termination. TSMA may, in TSMA’s sole discretion, suspend, disable, or delete your account (or any part thereof) or block or remove any User Content (defined below) that you submit, for any lawful reason, including if TSMA determines that you have violated these Terms or that your conduct or User Content would tend to damage TSMA’s reputation or goodwill. If TSMA deletes your account, you may not re-register for or use the Services under any other user name or profile. TSMA may block your access to the Services to prevent re-registration.
Effect of Termination / Account Deletion. Upon termination of these Terms or account cancellation or deletion by you or us, all licenses and other rights granted by TSMA to you will terminate; provided, however, that the provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive cancellation or deletion of your Account shall survive such termination, cancellation, or deletion. In the event of account deletion for any reason, User Content may no longer be available and TSMA is not responsible for the deletion or loss of such User Content. If you cancel your account or subscription or it is terminated for any reason, you will lose access to all live and on-demand classes and any other Content or features provided through the Services. TSMA, in its sole discretion, may make available a very limited amount of Content or features to non-subscribers from time to time, and any use of that Content is governed by these Terms.
- Account Deletion/Cancellation and Refunds.
Any user who has an account can delete your account or cancel your subscription by logging into your TSMA account and following the instructions on your account page. You must cancel your subscription prior to 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on the day before your next recurring billing date in order to avoid being charged. If you cancel your subscription, you will continue to have access to the Services that are subject to the subscription through the end of your current billing period. However, if you modify your subscription during your billing period, you may not have continued access to your original subscription Services. If you cancel, you will also forfeit any service, referral, or other credits.
Payments are nonrefundable. If you cancel, modify a paid subscription, or if your account is otherwise terminated under these Terms, you will not receive a credit or refund, including for partially used periods of Service. There are circumstances where TSMA may provide credits or refunds on a case by case basis. The amount and form of such credits or refunds, and the decision to provide them, are at TSMA’s sole and absolute discretion.
- User Content
“Content” means text, graphics, images, music, software, audio, video, works of authorship of any kind, and information or other materials that are posted, generated, provided or otherwise made available through the Services “User Content” means any content that users (including you) provide to be made available through the Services.

You further grant all users of the Services permission to view your User Content for their personal, non-commercial purposes.
If you make suggestions to TSMA or through the Services about improving or adding new features or products to the Services or you otherwise provide feedback, product or service reviews or testimonials, you hereby grant to TSMA a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable (through multiple tiers), transferable royalty-free license and right to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon and otherwise exploit your suggestions, feedback, reviews and testimonials for any purpose (including for marketing), without any notice, compensation or other obligation to you.
You can remove your User Content by specifically deleting it. However, in certain instances, some of your User Content (such as posts or comments you make) may not be completely removed and copies of your User Content may continue to exist on the Services.
