Karate - Olympics 2020

Karate Poised to Exemplify The Olympic Core Values in Tokyo 2020

Posted by Hayabusa Karate on June 22, 2015 at 2:20 PM

You might be surprised to learn that karate is not yet an Olympic Sport when even popular action movies about Kung Fu use the name "Karate Kid" . Could this be an indicator that the public is interested in karate? Karate has one hundred million practitioners worldwide, ten million competitors and two thousand karate events held every month worldwide. (Enkamp, 2015) . The World Karate Federation has evolved to become inclusive as the world wide passion for karate grew and its benefits became known around the world. The WKF now includes all styles of karate (WKF , 2015), holds events for peoples with disabilities such as 2014 World Championships in Bremen (WKF News, 2015) includes a significant number of both male and female competitors and a growing number of female officials.


Karate, originating in Japan, is allegedly amongst the most popular contenders for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Gillon reports that the chair of the European and the World Karate Federation organizing committees believes that karate's chances were further enhanced by the recent 2015 European Games in Baku. Rafael Aghayev (aka The Maradona of karate), Irina Zaretska and Fidovsi Fraliyev from Azerbaijan, Luigi Busa and Mattia Busatta from Italy, Sandra Sanchez and Damian Hugo Quinero from Spain, Serap Ozcelik from Turkey and Bettina Plank from Austria certainly made lasting impressions at the Baku Tournament.


The WKF, along with other federations of the short-listed sports will present to the Tokyo organizers in August and a final proposal will be made to the International Olympic Committee on September 30th.(Wire, 2015) Other shortlisted sports include baseball, bowling, roller sports, climbing, squash, surfing and wushu. (Tokyo 2020 News, 2015)


Although all shortlisted sports are worthy contenders, karate exemplifies the Olympic Core values like no other. Karate models excellence for it is a life-time study that demands the practitioner to pursue a lifelong attempt to perfect her character. It is built on friendship through the encouragement of values such as modesty and courtesy from grassroots to elite levels. Most importantly, every karate bout begins and ends with a bow as a sign of respect for fellow competitors and officials. Beyond the spectacular technique and mesmerizing excitement that karate brings to the games, it exemplifies the Olympic Core Values in all authenticity.
