According to Springfield Connection, “The sixth-degree black belt (“Roku”) in American Marine GoJu-Ryu Karate has been written about hundreds of times in Nepali and American newspapers for his accomplishments. Today, he lives on Leebrad Street in Springfield with his wife Priyanka and daughter Elizabeth, 13. He came to the U.S. 18 years ago after spending his childhood in Kathmandu, Nepal. Thakuri is an expert in American Marine GoJu-Ryu Karate and also does Shito-Ryu Karate, which means karate with empty hands or no weapons. Strictly an amateur fighter, he receives no financial rewards for his hard work but holds more than 30 national trophies, medals, belts, and cups for competitions inside the U.S.”

As per Springfield Connection, “His biggest accomplishments include the world record for the most full-contact knee strikes in three minutes (226 on one leg); he holds two world records for his Van Dam-style weight lift – a split and weight lift (142.48 pounds); the feat is named after Rob Van Dam, whose record he broke two times. His other records include a World Championship Belt – the 2017 Kuro Bushi Martial Arts Organization Champion; a World Title Belt from the Battle of Baltimore 2016 World Karate Championship. Another is a first-place Black Belt in Creative Form at the Amerikick International Championship.”
