Karate is a beloved sport by millions around the world. We do this sport because we truly believe in it. If there ever were a modern day sport that captured the true meaning of budo, fighting spirit, it is karate. Let's bring budo to the Olympic Games.

Karate is not only exciting to watch but I believe embodies all of the values and athletic attributes that the Olympics movement represent. It is time that the World should see how great sport Karate is and what the sport has to offer.
