• On the 26th of September 2015, the Slovak Judo Association held an event to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Judo in Košice. Twelve members were honored, who were instrumental in building the foundations of Košice Judo over six decades. This is my speech I prepared for the event.

I would like to thank Judo Košice for honoring my father, Vaclav Dusil.

From childhood I admired my father, and I have admired him my whole life.

My father studied veterinary medicine in Košice and was the only student to graduate with honors. Together with my mother they established a successful veterinary practice, that exists to this day.

Before emigrating to Canada, my father won many awards in Judo and received his second degree black belt. He was a national champion in Slovakia, and in the 60’s became head coach of Lokomotiva Košice. My father was very popular among judoka, his fellow colleagues in university, in business and especially among friends and family.

He married the best wife and the best mother in the world. To have a better future for his family, we immigrated to Canada to begin a new chapter.

Not only was Vaclav the best father in the world, but also the best man I ever knew.

Thank you once again for your honoring my father, Vaclav Dusil.

Začiatkom môjho príspevku by som sa rád poďakoval Judo Košice za špeciálnu cenu pre môjho otca, Vaclava Dusila.

Môj Otec je mojim nekonečnými vzorom. Od detstva som ho obdivoval a budem ho obdivovať cely môj život.

Štúdium na veterine v Košiciach skončil ako jediný študent s červeným diplomom, ktorý mu pomohol v budúcností rozvíjať svoje schopnosti. S mamou založili úspešnú veterinárnu kliniku kto existuje dodnes.

Pred tým ako emigroval do Kanady, získal v jude veľa ocenení a získal 2 Dan. Bol majstrom Slovenska a v 60tych rokoch sa stal hlavným trénerom Lokomotívy Košice. Môj otec bol veľmi obľúbený medzi judistami, v skole, v biznise ale aj medzi priateľmi a rodinou.

Oženil sa s najlepšou ženou a najlepšou mamou na svete. Kvôli mne a mojej budúcej sestre, aby sme mali lepšiu budúcnosť, emigroval do Kanady kde začali svoj život od nuly.

Pre mňa nebol len najlepší otec na svete ale bol to najlepší človek akého som kedy poznal.

Ešte raz vám ďakujem za vaše ocenenie môjho otca, Vaclava Dusila.
