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.

Self-Defense:

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.
