Some accidents involve active participants and others involve spectators and bystanders. Participants do assume the risk of injuries which is part of playing the game. However, unless the activity is karate or boxing, a competitor does not assume the risk of intentionally violent attacks which are intended to kill or maim. Many other sports such as ice hockey or football have an inherent danger or violence to them. Skiers and snowboarders are involved in thousands of collisions annually. Equestrian sports have an added risk involving the uncertainty of large animals and uneven terrain.
