I would get to know the person a bit before sparring. Some guys are pure hard core and others are just looking for someone to take to court. Be careful.

Im in a "club" similar to this. My friend and I started it. What we did was invite people we knew. Only invite the ones you trust and know that they wont sue you. Then get each of them to invite more. Still, make them all sign release forms anyway, and if possible, get a video of them signing it (heh, it always helps to be able to prove that THEY signed it). Have fun!

Plain and simple. Yes, you can get sued. Especially if you are the (and I used the term loosely) "organizor". If you bring people together, you ae responsible for their saftey, formal club or informal club.

You can be sued for anything in the US. I would suggest that there always be a designated referee to stop the action if it gets out of control, especially if there are people participating that you do not know well. Good luck!
