I noticed that your exemplar Rip-off Agreement" seems to pan any school that attempts to insulate itself from liability for damages or injury arising out of the use of the school, "including those arising from negligence on the part of ROYA." I must totally disagree with that insinuation. There is nothing wrong or untoward about a school attempting to limit its liability from lawsuits, especially in today's overly-litigious climate. Unfortunately, many honest businesses, like many local TKD schools, are simply trying to share the benefit of their knowledge, passion and joy of learning and studying TKD with everyone they can. What they don't always realize, however, is that behind every smiling face could be the next lawsuit (and plaintiff's lawyer) ready to tear the school down. To do that, the claimant will argue everything is wrong with the school, from the instructor to the front door. Thus, as a lawyer, I completely advocate the inclusion of the above-referenced language in any company's disclaimer, especially on behalf of a reputable and honest TKD school owner.
