Karate Competition

Karate is now one of five proposed sports to be recommended adding to the program of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics by the Tokyo organizing committee.

Under the recommendations, Karate would have eight men’s and women’s events – Kata (men and women) and Kumite (three weight classes each for men and women) – for a total of 80 athletes.

Since the recommendation will be submitted to the International Olympic Committee, the final decision will be made in August 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.
