Ankush Bakuli started taking Isshinryu Karate classes at FSDC during the summer of 2011, when he was 10 years old. His initial interest in karate soon became a passion. He wants to continue karate as it has taught him self-confidence and has helped him understand and appreciate the amount of effort and dedication needed to reach any goal. It has also helped him to understand the importance of community and he has regularly participated in “Light up the Night,” Memorial and Labor Day parades.
He enjoys participating in various karate tournaments. He also enjoys teaching the younger karate-kas whenever called upon.
Outside of FSDC, Ankush enjoys swimming, running, biking, and spending time with his friends.
