I STARTED PLAYING TAEKWONDO AT THE AGE OF 4 YEARS UNDER THE EXPERT GUIDANCE OF DADOJI KONDEV PURASKAR VIJETE COACH, SHRI BHASKAR KARKERA SIR AT B.K'S ACADAMY. In the ACADEMY, SIR OBSERVED potential in me and encouraged me to further practice and participate in different Local and State competitions. I performed remarkably in all competitions by winning GOLD and SILVER medals in all Local / State and National level Competitions. After winning GOLD medals in State level competition, Sir insisted my parents to SEND me to play in the International competition which was scheduled at Bangkok, Thailand. My parents believed in Sir and dared to send me to THAILAND to play in my first INTERNATIONAL TAEKWONDO COMPETITION where I performed to my potential and won the Gold Medal in that competition.
