COVID-19 UPDATE

After spending a lot of time working with the Capital Center, and the local school owners, to best understand what our options are and what the local martial arts community's thoughts are on having this years event, our conclusion, very sadly, is that an in person event like we are used to, just is not feasible this year due to Covid19. We are all very disappointed.

That being said, we are trying to make the most of the situation, and we all know that we cannot go a full year without seeing all of our NEO friends and family. So the NEO Planning Committee is working very hard on a virtual concept that will combine both virtual competition as well as opportunities to connect and showcase with our NEO family.

Please hold the original date of Saturday August 8th - and read more informationbelow about how we will be celebrating NEO on that day!

In an event of this nature, the success lies directly proportional to not only the quality of the organization but also the quality of the officials.  Judges for the North East Open are hand selected. Only the highest ranking, most experienced martial artists are recruited.  Each a Master or school owner and an expert in their discipline.  These top martial artists from throughout the region, all have to sign a contract of commitment to the event, give an oath to unbiased judging based on style or school and participate in a pre-event meeting one month prior to the event. These extraordinary prerequisites ultimately lead to the highest quality of judging and the most well run martial arts competition possible. Each year each division is judged by a panel of different martial artists, representing different style knowledge and background. This diversity helped create a level playing field for the competitors. Because each judge was a master in their field as well as a seasoned martial artist, they had the ability to judge based on technique rather than style.
