The "K" has gone away....

Lord knows how much it cost to come up with this rubbish!

Well....not anymore it isn't. The WKF's latest bid to get karate into the Olympics has fallen flat, in spite of all the money that has been spent and wasted, and all the back-slapping that has gone on for years to try to have it included. No doubt there are a great many would-be karate "champions" out there who shed a tear when the news broke recently, but these sports folk are a tough lot; so, as soon as they take their gum shields out, get rid of their gloves and shin protectors, put their groin guards away, and step off the lovely soft sponge matting they bounce around on....I'm sure they'll be just fine!

The leaders of the WKF should stop pretending they are relevant to karate, stop pretending they speak for authentic karate-ka, and show a little respect to the martial art they claim to represent, get out of your blazers and gray flannel trousers guys, stop attending meetings all over the place, and get back in to your dogi..(you still have one, right?). Here's a novel idea... why don't you start training seriously, you know, with an authentic sensei; that way you can at least refer to yourselves as karateka......
