I wasn't familiar with karate, so i looked it up on youtube, so umm, is Kata like synchronized dancing? why is it in the olympics?

 

If thats in maybe they should've added pro wrestling, it's japan after all, Omega vs Okada for the gold

WKF is extremely quick in updating the ranking   I made some calculations, this is the list of athletes with realistic chance (even small chance) to qualify directly to the Olympics. I remov

and for women   Women's Kata Sandra Sanchez - 10582.5 Q Viviana Bottaro - 6585 Q Grace Lau - 5790 Sakura Kokumai - 5197.5 Dilara Eltemur - 3667.5    

WKF updated the Olympic ranking. we have lots of changes because of the continental championships. someone corrects me if I'm wrong but it seems right now only except Oceania we have continental Champ

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.
