Olympic Karate


In August 2016, the International Olympic Committee endorsed WKF Sports Karate for inclusion in the 32nd Olympiad in Tokyo, Japan, in 2020.

The events will be individual Kata (Forms) and individual Kumite (Sparring) in three weight divisions.

After decades of lobbying the IOC for inclusion, Karate will appear in the 2020 Olympics for the first time in history.

This is a momentous occasion for a sport, and many initiatives will now unfold as the Sport of Karate, under the auspices of the World Karate Federation, makes preparations for the Olympics.

The Chief Instructor of Kodomon Karate-Do, Sensei Glenn Irvine, is the State Coaching Director for Queensland for the Australian Karate Federation, and one of the Queensland State Coaches, and has prepared several elite competitors of Sports Karate for State, National, and International competition.

There have been three Australian Representatives in the Kodomon Karate-do organisation who have represented the Nation in International events such as the Commonwealth Championships (Jack Megraw – Canada 2013, Zac Henderson – India 2015), Oceania Championships (Jack Megraw and Maggie Henderson – Fiji 2014), World Youth Cup (Jack Megraw and Maggie Henderson – Croatia 2015), and Jack Megraw represented Australia at the World Junior Championships in Indonesia in November 2015.
