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!
