2022 UPDATE

Save the Date - August 13th, 2022

We are excited to Announce that for 2022 we are BACK, to a full caliber event! Thank you to everyone who supported us in 2021 as we brought back SAFE, In-Person Martial Arts Competition!

Safety will continue to be our number one priority moving forward, acknowledging that the pandemic is not over, and that the community, its rules and dangers, are changing week to week.

As we work towards bringing you the North East Open, please be patient with us, as we can expect smaller participation as we all work to rebuild. What you can count on is our continued commitment to organization, fairness and most importantly, camaraderie! 

 

Descriptions of event

 

Rules:

The Creative Division allows forms to include an array of techniques. These forms may be devised in their entirety by the competitor, or be a traditional form in which modern aspects were added.  In this division, the competitor may perform any movements whether they originate from traditional or contemporary martial arts systems or otherwise. However, at least half of the form must originate from martial arts techniques.  Emphasis is placed on the quality of execution of techniques and movements, martial arts skills, balance, speed, power, degree of difficulty, and showmanship, solid stances, focus,  spinning kicks, jump spinning kicks, flying kicks, multiple kicks, splits and other creative martial arts techniques are permitted. In addition, only those movements that portray a definite offensive or defensive martial arts purpose, or are included to illustrate extreme flexibility or agility, are allowed. We are now allowing: extreme gymnastic-type movements in the creative form and weapons divisions, as well as spins greater than 360 degrees.
