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:

Competitor will have 3 minutes to perform 3 to 5 self-defense sequences. The competitor must demonstrate each sequence twice, once full speed and once in slow-motion showing the mechanics of the techniques and what exactly is being done (manipulations and strikes that may not be seen full speed). The competition ring for this division will be matted. Each competitor must have their own partner/attacker "Uke". All partners/attackers or "Uke's" must report to the ring with the competitor. If your partner is competing in a different ring, please let the ring coordinators know and we will make sure we accommodate you. There are no restrictions on the rank, age, size of your partner. Each competitor may only have one attacker for each defense, and must have the same attacker for their entire performance. Weapons may be used, only knives, guns & sticks/bats are allowed. There should be no live weapons only training safety weapons.

The Self-Defense divisions will be judged on the EFFECTIVENESS of the technique and the competitors ability to control their attacker and the situation efficiently and collected. Flashy movie style self-defenses will not score high if they lack street practicality.
