Martial arts at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

Martial arts at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and that have become 2021 due to the global Covid pandemic but still nothing Jiu Jitsu but karate arrives.

The 2020 Summer Olympics (競技, From sanjūni-kai orinpiādo kyōgi taikai), informally known as Tokyo 2020, were due to be held in Tokyo, Japan, from July 24 to August 9, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, dates have been postponed by one year, from 23 July to 8 August 2021.

Despite this, the name Tokyo 2020 will be retained for marketing and branding reasons.

This is the first time the Olympic Games have been postponed rather than cancelled.

Martial arts at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics will be joined by a new discipline, Karate.

Martial arts such as Boxing, Karate, Taekwondo,Olympic Wrestling, Judo and Fencing will be the fighting disciplines as Olympic sports in 2020 that will be held in Tokyo, Japan and will take place from July 23 to August 8, 2021.

Karate was not part of the 2016 Rio Olympics.

However luckily for lovers of this art, Karate was approved for the 2021 Olympics because the events are hosted by Japan.

Coincidentally in Japan, too bad that could also be inserted the Jiu Jitsu in Brazil and then continue it in Japan.

I have listed in an article the reasons for the non-inclusion of the discipline of wrestling so beloved but nevertheless I am glad that a discipline like Karate has been inserted.

At the 2020 Olympics, Karate events will include both Kumite (combat) and Kata.

2020 Tokyo Olympics

According to the Tokyo Olimpico website, for the Karate kata segment, athletes can choose from “75 types designated by WKF.

At the tournament, competitors are required to demonstrate a different kata for each session, including the final.

Karate’s kumite at the 2020 Olympics will be contactless.

Competitors send tsuki, or punches, and Keri, or kicks, with explosive force to the prescribed regions of the opponent’s body.

However, a tsuki or Keri does not actually hit the opponent because the competitors perform each tsuki and Keri with absolute control, allowing them to stop the sudden movement a few millimetersbefore coming into contact with the opponent.

Ps. I didn’t insert archery as martial arts, because I didn’t just consider the one-on-one disciplines

Karate will then make its debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

In the infographic we find out what is the mechanism that will allow our karatekas to participate in the event they have always dreamed of.

Olympic medals will be awarded in the following specialties:

  • Men’s individual kata
  • Women’s individual kata
  • Male kumite categories: -67 kg -75 kg +75 kg
  • Female kumite categories: -55 kg -61 kg +61 kg

there are 80 athletes who will take part in the Games in total.

The period in which the Olympic qualifiers will take place runs from July 2, 2018 to June 30, 2020 and there will be three ways to get the pass:

  • the Olympic ranking (Competitions valid for the Olympic Ranking: World Championships, Continental Championships, Karate 1 Premier League and Karate 1 Serie A)
  • the world qualifying tournament
    continental representation combined with the ranking
  • the top 4 finishers for each weight category in the Olympic rankings will have access
    directed to Tokyo 2020.

3 athletes will get the pass during the Olympic qualifying tournament that will take place in Paris from 15 to 17 May 2020.

Finally, after all the other passes are assigned, 4 seats will be assigned by a special committee.

The combat disciplines at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics:

  • Boxing
  • Fencing (Fencing)
  • Judo
  • Karate (first time at the Olympics, randomly in Japan)
  • Taekwondo
  • Wrestling

Jiu Jitsu?? 🙁 still nothing, for fans of this art there is still a struggle to be able to see the Soave Art at the Olympics.

What about jiu jitsu?

Unfortunately even at the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo still nothing Jiu Jitsu.

I do not agree with this choice also because in recent years this discipline has grown in the world beyond the fact that clearly I am on the side but perhaps the fault is also related to the fact that internally in the world of Jiu Jitsu it is not possible to find a common understanding to build an idea of Jiu Jitsu world while too often it is linked to personal economic interests that I share in part but that certainly do not allow to bring at the Olympics this discipline not finding a single or at most a couple of interlocutors.

Con una passione per la difesa personale e gli sport da combattimento, mi distinguo come praticante e fervente cultore e ricercatore sulle metodologie di allenamento e strategie di combattimento. La mia esperienza abbraccia un vasto panorama di discipline: dal dinamismo del Boxing alla precisione del Muay Thai, dalla tecnica del Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu all'energia del Grappling, dal Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW) all'intensità del Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Non solo insegno, ma vivo la filosofia di queste arti, affinando costantemente metodi e programmi di allenamento che trascendono il convenzionale. La mia essenza si riflette nell'autodifesa: Filipino Martial Arts (FMA), Dirty Boxing, Silat, l'efficacia del Jeet Kune Do & Kali, l'arte della scherma con coltelli e bastoni, e la tattica delle armi da fuoco. Incarno la filosofia "Street Fight Mentality", un approccio senza fronzoli, diretto e strategico, unito a un "State Of Love And Trust" che bilancia l'intensità con la serenità. Oltre al tatami, la mia curiosità e competenza si spingono verso orizzonti diversi: un blogger professionista con la penna sempre pronta, un bassista dal groove inconfondibile e un artigiano del coltello, dove ogni lama è un racconto di tradizione e innovazione. Questa sinfonia di abilità non solo definisce la mia identità professionale, ma dipinge il ritratto di un individuo che nella diversità trova la sua unica e inconfondibile voce e visione. Street Fight Mentality & Fight Sport! Andrea
