In the Press

“A few weeks ago, my mother’s friend, a graduate student at the Seoul National University in South Korea, came to visit Minnesota. He is currently traveling the world, and for the first time in his life he’s outside of Korea. So far, he has traveled to France, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Italy, among others.

In college he was president of the Judo club. So in every country he visits, he also visits university Judo clubs. When he came to my house after attending the University of Minnesota Judo Club meeting for the first time, he was deeply impressed by Minnesotans.

He said that there could be no people nicer than the people he met that day. According to him, when he asked someone where the gym was, someone actually guided him to the gym entrance. I was told that when he entered the gym, the Judo club members warmly welcomed him and even gave him a judogi — a judo uniform — to join their practice. He attended several more meetings until the day before he left Minnesota. In the last meeting he attended, they held a pizza party for him. He said these were the friendliest people he met throughout all his travels.”
