2021 UPDATE

We know it has been a while since we provided an update, we apologize about that, however, unfortunately with the ups and downs of the pandemic, there really has not been any opportunity to make any decision and provide any update.

Now that we are entering 2021, and a very different changed world, we want to start looking at how we may be able to resume the NEO this year. The pandemic has brought us many challenges and many opportunities.  We have seen the rise in virtual events out of necessity, and they have shown their benefit. We still have a love for our live event and are hoping with the introduction of the vaccination this year, that we can hold the NEO this year in a modified “in-person” format.

Descriptions of event

 

Rules:

Competitors in these divisions will perform Forms (patterns, kata, poomse, etc.) traditional to a specific style of martial arts.  These forms must capture the essence of classic martial arts movements, showcasing the traditional techniques, stances and footwork of the specific style. All competitors of a specific age and rank division will compete against each other, regardless of style.  Emphasis is placed on execution of technique, application of technique, balance, speed, power, solid stances, and focus. Forms may be unmodified or modified from what a system or school considers to be the original version of the form; however, performance of a form voted by the judges as inappropriate for the division will result in a unanimous decision, of a "no score".  Competitors should use weapons of a traditional design.
