Karate at the olympics sign now

Karate is more popular than judo and taekwondo in the world (Karatй - 895.100
Judo - 30.180
Tae Kwon Do - 28.735)
, but unlike its martial arts siblings, it is not an Olympic sport.
However all that may change at the 117th IOC Session in Singapore.
The Olympic Karate Movement has already brought us a democratic structure that governs the international and national federations. As in any other democratic entity, all members must actively join in the decision-making process. If we fail to act now, we all must share the responsibility of failure!!!

We , the world karate community(athletes, coaches, and fans would finally like to see karate at the Olympics)

We ask the world karate community to act and sign this petition.

Taekwondo which made its first appearance in the 2000 Sydney Games, has been under pressure to make reforms due to cases of impartial biasness and judging criteria.
It will be represented in the 2008 Beijing Olympics but its place in the 2012 Games is not guaranteed.
Choose the right way to promote the sport while preserving its traditional honor, spirit ,integrity and sportsmanship values!



Voici les dernieres nouvelles du CIO au niveau du vote :
Nouveaux sports
Le baseball et le softball n'ayant pas йtй retenus pour les Jeux Olympiques de 2012, les membres du CIO ont votй pour l'ajout de deux nouveaux sports au programme olympique, puisque ce dernier peut en comporter jusqu'а 28.
Cinq sports non olympiques - roller, squash, golf, karatй et rugby а sept - ont йtй examinйs par la commission du programme olympique lors de son йtude.
Sur ces cinq sports, les membres du CIO en ont retenu deux
- le squash et le karatй - susceptibles d'кtre admis au programme olympique des Jeux de 2012 а Londres.

Toutefois, pour que ce choix soit entйrinй, а savoir qu'un sport non olympique devienne sport olympique et figure donc en tant que tel dans la Charte olympique а la Rиgle 46, la majoritй des 2/3 de la Session est requise. Or, ni le squash ni le karatй n'ont obtenu cette majoritй.
Ils n'ont donc pas йtй admis au programme des Jeux Olympiques de 2012 а Londres. Les rйsultats complets du vote figurent ci-aprиs.
Choix de deux sports susceptibles d'кtre admis au programme olympique pour 2012

Karatй : 54 Rugby : 38 Le karatй fait partie des deux sports susceptibles d'кtre admis au programme olympique pour 2012. Il ne faut pas baisser les bras!!!


Voici quelques chiffres dйmontrant le nombre de licenciers en Amйrique du Nord et en Amйrique Latine :
Karatй - 895.100
Judo - 30.180
Tae Kwon Do - 28.735
