July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Los Juegos Olímpicos de Verano 2020, la XXXII Olimpiada, se realizan en Tokio, Japón.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games feature 339 events in 33 different sports, encompassing 50 disciplines.

Karate is making its first appearance at an Olympic Games, in Tokyo this year. Men and women will compete in Kata (an artistic display of offensive and defensive moves) and Kumite (an explosively combative sport).

It is the second time that Japan, and specifically Tokyo, has hosted the Summer Olympic Games – the first being in 1964.
