Martial Arts at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics

This page focuses on the martial arts events at the 2020 Olympics. Martial arts such as Boxing, Karate, Taekwondo, Wrestling, Judo and Fencing are participating as Olympic sports in 2020. The 2020 Summer Olympics will be held in Tokyo, Japan and run from July 24 to August 09, 2020.

Karate was not part of the 2016 Rio Olympics. However, luckily, Karate was approved for the 2020 Olympics because the events are being hosted by Japan. Karate at the 2020 Olympics will include kumite (sparring) and kata. Currently, we are not listing archery as an Olympic martial arts because it does not compete as a combative one-on-one event at the Olympics.
