Welcome to the Tokyo Olympics 2020!


:kungfu: This thread is all about Karate :kungfu:

That is a new discipline that was accepted by the IOC for this year. The traditional Japanese martial art has two sections, the Kumite and the Kata. While the Kata are a demonstration detailed pattern of movements, the Kumite is the one for the battles with fists and feet. Both sections are separated in two genders and in three different weight classes. The 36 best Karatekas win a medal.

The shedule can be found here: https://olympics.com/tokyo-2020/olym...nd-results.htm

Use this thread to discuss about the results, the events in general and have fun!

Besides, 04MR17 and CheeseIsVeg support me where they can. Thanks in advance!

Look at the schedule, it begin pretty late, at the 5th August. What do you like more? the Katas (demonstrated imaginery fight) or the Kumites (real fights)?

Grace Lau will now fight for bronze. I think her opponent is some Turkish athlete. I hope she does it!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
The first bronze medalist for the women's kata is Grace Lau from HK! It's our 5th medal in Tokyo!
Watched the match on channel 82 (TVB J2) and her brother was one of the commentators. He was really proud of her.
