Karate South Africa firmly believes “KARATE IS AN OLYMPIC SPORT (Tokyo 2020) AND THEREFORE MUST BE INCLUDED IN THE 2024 PARIS OLYMPICS!!!

The bizarre decision to exclude Karate from the 2024 Paris Olympics by the powers that be needs to be revisited!

We, the karate leaders of the world, cannot afford the OLYMPIC karate dreams of millions of today’s Youth to be shattered!

We, KSA, will not sit back and take no for an answer. WKF be rest assured your fight for justice is our fight !!!

Best sporting regards
