    Shotokan? Shorinryu? Okinawan? Kempo?

    Which style(s)?

    I would love it if it was Okinawan as that is what I'm familiar with.

    Would there be a problem with just allowing any type of Karate, just as long as it's an established form of Karate?

    WKF rules, probably. You could be from any style you want as long as you use the WKF ruleset.

    Expect to see some ITF TKD guys pop up, too. The rules are similar.

    I don't know if Kata is an event, but WKF allows most Kata from most Karate styles.
    SFV: Ken, with THAT ORANGE COSTUME

    I have nobody to play with, so I typically talk out of my ass.

    From wikipedia:
    At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, she received considerable international media attention following an incident during the 5000m heat in which both she and American Abbey D'Agostino fell. The two women helped each other finish the race and were allowed to compete in the final, however D'Agostino had suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus and was unable to participate further. Hamblin's injuries were less serious and she was able to compete in the final, however she finished last. Both athletes were praised for their sportsmanship and "olympic spirit",[3] and were subsequently awarded the Rio 2016 Fair Play Award by the International Fair Play Committee.[4][5]

    Apparently tickets aren't selling nearly as well as expected due to NK being in the news. Might be able to scoop some seats to the less popular events for hella cheap.

    This is the only good to ever come of curling:
