I am not very surprised to hear that a student of GM Lee is so successful. The man was so generous, and gracious. When I visited, it was during my friends Poomse class that GM Lee was teaching. When I arrived, he invited me into his oiffice, and was very curious about me, asking alot of questions and being very friendly. We shared tea, and he insisted I follow him over to a computer and look at his webpage. He gave me an autographed certificate with his picture meeting Queen Elizebeth, and an autographed copy of some Korean Taekwondo magazine featuring him on the cover. He was very kind to me, something that I was surprised about considering I am basically a nobody in the TKD world. For him to invite me to tea, and spend even a few minutes chatting and offering me some momentoes says alot about him as a person. Though I have to be honest, he is friends with my Master back in America, GM Jun Lee, so knowing I was a student of his, perhaps had something to do with the generosity he showed me. Either way, I was totally impressed with him, and to me, meeting him on that rainy fall afternoon, after tea and watching him go into very intricate details about poomse as the rain fell through orange and red leaves outside that practice room is something I will never forget.
Probably the best Taekwondo experiece I have had since being in Korea. If it werent that Keimyung University is so expensive, I would be a student there next spring.
