The World Union of Karate-Do Federations (WUKF) has made an official statement on yesterday’s exclusion of Karate from the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
“As a major worldwide Sport Karate body, the WUKF stands ready to work alongside all international federations to ensure that any future dialogue on Karate in the Olympic Games places inclusivity and universality at the heart of any proposal. We will instigate these discussions in due course.
“Olympism promotes the highest values of sport, culture, education and international cooperation. This should be the bedrock of any effort to gain Olympic recognition for Karate.”
