K Mix, c’est pour Karaté Mix, la version MMA du K. Son héraut ? Loïc Marty. Formé au Shotokan, ancien membre d’un Pôle Espoir Kata, il part à l’aventure à 18 ans aux US, pour « voir ». Il deviendra combattant professionnel de la Team Shamrock. Depuis son retour en France, il s’attèle à développer le Karaté Mix en alliant tradition et modernité, fondamentaux et renouveau, ce qu’il appelle la « continuité logique » de l’art martial. « Rien n’est créé. Tout se réinvente », développe-t-il dans son interview, entre autres choses.

Tested positive for the Covid just before her departure for Tokyo, Ana Chernysheva had missed the Olympics. The young Russian wins again at the Karate1 Moscow which ended this afternoon. The world tour veteran Arkania from Georgia continues his good streak of the year and wins a new K1, like Sanchez Jaime. Italian Semeraro beats Zaretska and then Olympic champion Abdelaziz to win her 1st K1. A competition in which many people were missing. All the results.

Since his gold medal, the Frenchman has continued to defend the presence of karate in Paris, to the point of irritating the OCOG. National and regional press, Hanouna’s show… He has never miss any opportunity. The Sports Minister took his side, as well as a hundred or so parliamentarians. But only one man can change the situation: the President of the Republic. What strategy (s) are currently adopted to move from the Elysee to Olympus ?
