The only Olympic combat sports are freestyle wrestling, Greco-Roman wrestling, Tae Kwon Do, judo, and boxing. If bushi ban prepared you for one of those then you could compete in the Olympics, but that is extremely unlikely.

Fencing is also an Olympic combat sport, coming in three varieties (foil, epee, and saber). – David H. Clements Dec 9 '13 at 16:01
@DavidH.Clements I apologize for my bias towards unarmed combat. Perhaps you could you edit my answer to include fencing? I assume firearms don't count because combat sports require competition against a live opponent instead of a target. – Dave Liepmann Dec 9 '13 at 16:27
