Ryo Kiyuna may well go in to his home Olympic Games in 2020 as one of the most likely gold medal winners in the entire Japanese team. The 27-year-old is the 2014 and 2016 World Karate Federation (WKF) world champion, the 2017 World Games gold medallist and is unbeaten in major competition since 2013.
Like so many of his fellow elite athletes, Japan’s karate sensation Ryo Kiyuna puts his success down to hard work, pure and simple. It may sound clichéd, but on close examination his training schedule does give new meaning to the term dedication.
To be an Olympic sport should be a great opportunity for karate, especially considering the ties of karate with the Japanese traditional culture, It will be the chance to make the discipline even more popular in Japan. Ryo Kiyuna
