And it's fucking point karate and kata because the IOC recognized the WKA as the governing body. **** everything.

"We want to take sport to the youth," said IOC president Thomas Bach. "With the many options that young people have, we cannot expect any more that they will come automatically to us. We have to go to them.

WKF not WKA. AFAIK that's fundamentally a Shotokan organization. There's also the ITKF, which was founded by Nishiyama. Not sure if this will encourage a merge now that he's dead.

Doesn't matter. The world will be exposed to more tippy tappy bullshit, and I will continue to get weird looks when I visit MMA/Boxing gyms when I get asked what my past experience is after they see me train a bit. ****. We need another Mas Oyama to come along and continue the process of making karate great again.

I can promise you more than your share of street if you got to the Olympics that are happening right now.

So wrestling is out because its too much like judo and bjj gets no chance for the same reason, but stop and go foot tag in a gi isn't too similar to an existing olympic sport?

Wrestling got voted back in for 2020 as far as I'm aware.

What in your opinion does karate do better than Muay Thai?

Hopefully BJJ will never get into the Olympics. Olympic inclusion is the worst thing that can happen to a martial art.
