Olympic News

5 new sports have been added by the International Olympic Committee for the Olympics in Tokyo 2020, including baseball, skateboarding, surfing, climbing and KARATE!

This is great news for karatekas and people who have never been exposed to the art of karate. What a great time for it to be introduced in the perfect location Tokyo, Japan, the country where karate was established.

It’s been a long time coming, and I’m so excited that we are going to be able to watch the best karatekas from around the world perform from our TV screens!

Judo was brought into the Olympics in 1964 when Japan hosted the Olympics last time and Judo seems very popular in Japan now, and has over shone karate. No doubt karate will start a new adventure throughout the world after it is televised in 2020. Let’s hope it inspires others to take up the art.

It would be great if our Zen-Shin students could be involved. It will take a lot of hard work and time.

The best preparation for tomorrow is to do your best today” H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

  1. I’ve sent a message to Kyo-shi and Afiya on FB Messenger as I lost this link. Basically after explaining the level of work and especially focus required Ruaidhri would very grateful if Kyo-shi would consider training him for the Olympics. He and the club would have full back up from us. We know he is young and have given thought to his schooling but believe in the talent Kyo-shi sees in him . We feel this this is the best opportunity for his future and as always Zen-shin had our full commitment
