Important information for 2015 and 2016:

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have been unable to solidify a date for 2015 and unfortunately will not be able hold an event this year. We are in the process of working on the American Open World Tour event for 2016. With the additional time to prepare, the 2016 event promises to be the best American Open yet. We look forward to seeing you next year and thank you for your time and support. We apologize for any inconveniences, please feel free to contact us with any further questions or comments.
American Open Traditional Empty Hand Forms

In contrast to the NASKA Traditional forms divisions, the American Open Traditional Empty Hand Forms divisions are separated into groups where competitors compete within their own discipline groups of Japanese, Kenpo, and Korean. Competitors of all age groups, all experience levels, and all belt ranks are encouraged to compete in the American Open Traditional Empty Hand Forms divisions and are equally encouraged to compete using their school’s discipline forms. NASKA rules will be used in the American Open Traditional Empty Hand Forms divisions. They will start the competition on Sunday at 9:00 am; ring side check-in time is no later then 8:30 am.

18 & over Black Belt Korean and Japanese competitors may want to compete in the NASKA World Tour Black Belt Adult Forms divisions. These divisions will run on Sunday morning following the American Open Empty Hand Forms division. Ringside check-in time is 8:30 am.

Competitors are also encouraged to compete in the NASKA World Tour Black Belt and the NASKA / AKA Under Belt Forms, Weapons, Point Sparring divisions and Team Sparring, and the AKA American Open Continuous Sparring divisions. These divisions will begin competition on Saturday and Sunday morning will follow the American Open Empty Hand Forms Division. Ringside check-in time is no later then 8:30 am.
