Amrit achieve Takewondo master in the US

LOS ANGELES: There is a saying “The starting point of all achievement is desire.” We all have some sort of desires in life, but everyone can’t afford to stick to their desires. Success happens to those who believe & stand on their dreams. Things weren’t easy in the beginning for 28 years old Taekwondo player Mr. Amrit Mahato. Taekwondo is a Korean martial art in which competitors score points by punching to their opponent’s chest or kicking to their opponent’s chest or head. Four corner judges and one center referee determine whether the kick or punch delivered enough force to earn a point. Spinning kicks and kicks to the head earn additional points.
Amrit, First child of Mr. Ramdin Mahato & Mrs. Magari Mahato started his Taekwondo career participating in 6th District Level Taekwondo Championship in the age of 13 in Nepal and earned silver medal in his weight group. He earned 14 consecutive gold medals in district, zone & national level championships in between 2005 to 2007 in Nepal.

He made his 1st International debut in 2009 in International British Taekwondo championship & made his way to finale. He was awarded with gold medal in International British Taekwondo Championship in 2011. He is also the gold medalist of International Gorkha championship 2010. He made the history defeating his counterpart in the finale of 22nd CA International open Taekwondo Championship in 2014 and lifted the pride of Nepali diaspora to a new level.

After being graduated as a master from Best USA Taekwondo Academy, he is looking forward to a prestigious event named IOFTC which is going to held on 14th & 15th October 2016. What is so fascinating about Taekwondo ? “ It has ancient roots & it has lower injury rates than mixed martial art. It is basically for self defense & I love to defend myself”, Los Angeles based player said.
