You mean like Judo? Yes, boxing? yes Karate? yes. Aikido? yes.
Then there's photo competitions, drawing competitons, painting competitions, craftmaking competitons (have you never been to a fair?). Then there's horseback riding, archery and just about every sport in the Olympics started out as an art.
How do you know the arts you mentioned aren't considered a sport in other parts of the world? I presume they are because of the human nature to compete. Anything that requires skill will eventually be a competition and hence, a sport. Btw, what makes a competiton a sport?
