Sanix 2016 -- Cornel Childs

Dear Mrs. Koyama,

Thank you for supporting me and the rest of the US Judo team in attending SANIX 2016 in Fukuoka, Japan. I enjoyed meeting Judo players from across the United States and all over the world. I also appreciated the cultural experience and the opportunity to visit Fukuoka and other parts of Japan.

Sanix 2016 -- JuKye Johnson

-

Dear Saito Sensei,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to travel to Japan and allowing me to have an amazing, once in a lifetime experience. At first, I was really scared, especially because I did not want to get homesick as my brother did, or choked out as I heard from many other players experiences. Fortunately, I was perfectly fine and happy.

SANIX-TAISET 2016 -- Birmingham Team Coach

-

I would like to start off by talking about our time in Global Arena in Fukuoka Japan. Global Arena consisted of multiple buildings and the dorms were very nice. They have a convenience store, bakery, and two different dojos for practice. The meals were buffet style in the dining hall. I was very excited to try Japanese cuisine, and I made it a point to try something different every meal. I admit it took me a day or two to adjust. One of my favorite things that we had were what looked like fried green tomatoes, but were crunchy and had some type of meat in the middle. They were delicious.

SANIX-TAISET 2016 — A Parent’s Perspective

-

by Julie Cox

As a parent you hope that you are teaching your children to be gracious and appreciate the blessings of their life. The opportunity to join the team and travel to Japan for SANIX 2016 allowed my family many opportunities to reinforce the life lessons of appreciation and gratitude. The blessings began before we even packed for our trip.
