Venue

The AKA WARRIOR CUP is proud to host the NASKA Awards Banquet at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center.

Do I have to go to the NASKA Banquet to get my awards for 2021?

No. You can order awards to be picked up at the Compete World Martial Arts Championships or to be shipped to you. However, to access the awards and order them, you must register for the banquet and pay the registration fee.

What is included with my banquet registration fee?

Everyone pays the banquet registration fee regardless of whether they can attend. This Banquet fee covers all administrative, handling, and processing of your awards, all shipping for USA-based participants, most of the shipping for international attendees and all costs, including food, for the in-person portion of the event. In addition, it helps cover the cost of the free awards included for all NASKA Overall Grand Champions, Grand Champions, World Champions, and National Champions.

*NASKA as an organization does not pay for or fund the Banquet in any way. It is completely funded and produced by the AKA Warrior Cup. Despite the Banquet fee, the AKA Warrior Cup makes no profit and, in fact, donates much of the expense for the banquet in order to assure the quality and professionalism NASKA competitors deserve.

Can I order awards even after the NASKA Banquet date?

Due to the shorter amount of time between opening banquet registration and the banquet itself, the deadline to claim and purchase awards has been extended. You register and claim and purchase awards through January 31, 2022.

What if my NASKA ratings are incorrect?

Before you decide your ratings are incorrect, please go check the links for World Ratings: HERE and National Ratings: HERE, and search for the competitor’s name in each. This action will bring up all divisions in which the competitor is rated. By clicking on the competitor’s name, you will see a drop down list showing all results included in the rating and points earned for each result. Verify that there is an error through this process before submitting a support request. (Note that 2021 Pan American Internationals was a 5A rated event but competitors received 6A points for results).

If you find that there is an error in placement, missing results, etc you are also asked to verify during the banquet registration process. The first step when you begin to register is to view your ratings and to verify them or to submit a support request if there is a mistake. Rest assured that we will work with you to resolve all issues so that you can select the correct awards.

*Please use this process or the support request link on MATAction.com for any correction requests. We cannot respond to social media messages, emails to other accounts or phone calls regarding corrections.

Does the NASKA Banquet include awards for the NASKA virtual events?

No. The NASKA virtual events are not part of the NASKA Banquet.

Do I need to be vaccinated to attend the NASKA Banquet?

No. Everyone is invited to attend. Masks are mandatory when not eating or drinking, but vaccinations are not. Complimentary masks will be provided for anyone who does not have one.

Will the new Cook County, Illinois COVID mandates mean that the NASKA Banquet will be canceled?

Absolutely not. The NASKA Banquet will go forward as scheduled and we can’t wait to see you there.

What if I need a PCR or antigen test to return home after the NASKA Banquet and AKA Warrior Cup?

The AKA Warrior Cup will provide FREE PCR testing with a 24-hour turnaround for any attendee of the NASKA Banquet and AKA Warrior Cup on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the event. In addition, rapid Antigen tests with 15-minute turnaround will be available for $25-40 each.

I was unable to book a hotel at the official event hotel – what do I do?

The AKA Warrior Cup has contracted with the Embassy Suites as an overflow hotel. If you are unable to secure a room at the Renaissance Schaumburg, the group rate extends to the overflow hotel and it is 0.6 miles from the Renaissance and has a free shuttle that will take you to the Renaissance.
