Korean coach trains Taiwanese judo team

Korean coach trains Taiwanese judo team

Korean chief judo coach Lee Chang-soo married Taiwanese judo athlete Chen Mei-zhen in 1992, and became the judo trainer of National Taiwan University Of Sport.

Chen and Lee have been married for 23 years. She didn’t speak Korean in the beginning, but now she is able to translate for her husband, and has become Lee’s best helper in the training field. A student who was under Lee’s training indicated that the teacher has brought many new judo knowledge and new opinions to the Taiwanese judo team, and they have made great progress under his guidance.

Lee said the common problem for Taiwanese athletes is muscular strength, especially the female athletes. “But everyone practices a lot and we still have a chance to win in the Universiade.”
