Opinion on Kuniba-ha shito ryu karate?

Shito-ryu was founded by one of the legendary masters- Kenwa Mabuni. I think you mean the "Kuniba-kai" school. It's a style which mix soft and hard techniques. It uses a medium distance fight techniques. However, it won't teach you skills regarding gripping and ground combat.

Who created shito-ryu?

It is a style of karate (one of the originals) founded by Kenwa Mabuni in 1931. Many of his practitioners worked forward to improve the art even after he died. Every master added something to it and that's the reason today there are more than 20 branches of shito ryu!

Why karate-do is not included in the olympic?

Why don't you go and ask the International Olympics Committee?!Ok jokes apart, As you know judo and taekwondo are part of olympic games. Even Karate had been voted several times like in 2005 & 09 but all in vain. Why?First of all there are so many styles in karate like shotokan, shito-ryu, goju-ryu, shorin-ryu and so many much more that you can't even learn their names. Some of these styles are again subdivided like shito-ryu compromises of shito-kai, seito shito-ryu, Itosu-kai,and a dozen more. These all are different from each other in kumite rules Now if IOC finally makes a guideline about the rules then the karatekas would need to practice again to come in accordance with the new Olympic guideline.Secondly in my opinion there are so many fighting sports in Olympics such as Boxing, Judo, Wrestling and Taekwondo that it would be unneccesary to add one more.Karate is more practical martial art i.e., it was made to be used in real fights while taekwondo over the time has developed into a less practical style and is more suitable in tournaments than in real fights. So IOC must have given more importance to the latter.Personally, I think that IOC should at least add Karate as a demonstration sport.
