Is karate going to be in the Olympics?

If Karate is able to obtain 2/3 votes of the Olympic committee then it can. Recently, the Committee announced that Wrestling is not a part of the Olympics, so karate has got a chance. But still, as there is already taekwondo in the Olympics, they can argue as to why to keep another martial art (karate). Part of the issue with karate is that it is not designed as a sport. There is no single governing body to set rules for competition. Judo was designed as a sport and Taekwondo has been codified to make it a sport, which allows them to be eligible for the Olympics.
