Project parentage

Welcome to the Karate task force of WikiProject Martial arts and WikiProject Japan. This WikiProject Task Force aims to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Karate and the organisation of information and articles on this topic. This page will ultimately contain suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this community will help to focus the efforts of Wikipedians interested in Karate, especially in light of interest in Karate following its inclusion in the 2020 Olympic Games. If you would like to help, please add yourself as a participant in the project below, inquire on the talk page, and see the to-do list, below.


  • Improve Wikipedia's coverage of Karate by improving, adding and re-working pages.
  • Better connect and flesh out pages concerning Karate, for example mapping out katas and styles and ensuring they are properly referenced.
  • Improve referencing of articles on Karate, particularly replacing primary references where possible.
  • Improve articles that are associated with the Karate at the Summer Olympics from the 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.
  • Create advice pages for articles about Karate.


  • The project covers all articles about or touching on Karate!
