Is Karate In The 2024 Summer Olympics?

Karate 2024 Olympics

It was announced that karate will not be among the sports included in the 2024 Summer Olympic Games in Paris. This decision caught many Olympic sports fans off guard. After historically being excluded from the Olympics, Karate is finally making its first appearance in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Karate will include mens and womens events for both kumite and kata in 2020, with around 80 competitors in total. However, to the surprise of many, karate will again not be recognized as an Olympic sport for the following 2024 Olympics. The Olympic Committee has not yet elaborated on the reasoning behind karate's exclusion in 2024.

The decision by the Olympic Committee to exclude karate yet again sparked controversy in the combat sport and martial arts communities. A very large population of dedicated karate fans and participants believe karate is absolutely worthy of being included in the Olympics. It certainly meets all the requirements for being an Olympic sport, considering it will make its inaugural appearance in the 2020 Summer Olympics. It is a bit peculiar that karate is being removed from Olympic recognition so quickly after being added to the worldwide event. Several groups are attempting to petition the Olympics to change their decision and include karate in the 2024 Olympics in Paris. Provided that karate has a successful debut in 2020, karate fans may have a strong case for 2024.
