Yeah they should have dropped kata and made the kumite events have 16 athletes each.

Btw I find team kata much more interesting than individuals , but considering the fact that Japan put Karate in the 5 suggested sports to dominate it , it's not a big surprise that they add Kata

I'm not against kata being in the Olympics, but if you are going to give the sport so few athlete quotas things need to be cut. Baseball/Softball is the same thing, they should have either made it an 8 team tournament or don't bother hosting it.

I actually think Kata is a more interesting addition than Kumite because it’s much more unique at the Olympics. Kumite just looks very samey. I would be quite happy to give up Kumite for a team Kata event.

it's wrong...

the ranking will be closed on April, 6th 2020

then there will be the world qualification tournament in May (15th-17th) 2020 and some places will be granted also through the Continental Champs of that year (dates TBD in all Continents)...

I know, but if you check the ending timetable you will see a generic qualification period considered as ending on this strange day :d
