To be honest I'd be happy if they got rid of most combat sports and just had some hybrid sports that could cater to a multitude of martial artists and combat athletes
Olympic Kickboxing:most if not all Striking based combat sports , including Boxing,Kickboxing,Muay Thai,Karate ,TKD,San Shou, with a rule set similar to K1 kickboxing and slightly more protective gear
Olympic Submission Wrestling :grappling sports including BJJ,Freestyle/Greco-Roman/Catch Wrestling,Judo,Sambo,Shaiu Jaoi, with a rule set similar to ADCC Submission Wrestling and maybe have Gi and No-Gi divisions
Olympic Modern Pankration :All of the above and an Olympic event for aspiring MMA fighters , I mean Modern Pankration as seen on Human Weapon where the stand up rules are similar to Kyokushin Karate and the grappling is pretty much the Submission Wrestling
These could all become events and yes I've pointed out they are already seperate events but think of winning an Olympic Medal in one of them?? and the rule sets are fair enough that a practitioner of any of the disciplines involved has a shot at it I mean it's a common ground it's fair and it's also a challenge for Olympic Combat Athletes to add to their base skills , I like the current combat sports involved but I think everyone deserves a shot especially fighters because let's face it the ancient Olympic athletes were all also serving their respective city states military and most of the Olympic events back then related to warfare skills ,ironic tha warfare ceased during the games
I really don't care about IOC policies and regulations I'm just throwing out some ideas that will never be realized because people are to ******* stupid to know a great idea when they see one.
