Karate will be making its Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020. In August 2019, Hungary's karate team visited Tomigusuku in Okinawa Prefecture to undergo training and to foster an exchange between the kids of Hungary and Okinawa. The kids discover that karate was first developed in Okinawa as a means of self-defense without the use of weapons, and that it was introduced to Hungary after the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Through their research, the kids discover the true meaning of karate and its message for peace.
