98-Year-Old Woman Reaches Judo's Highest Rank


Our inspiring story of the day concerns Sensei Keiko Fukuda, who was just promoted to 10th degree black belt, judo’s highest level. The 98-year-old overcame gender discrimination that kept her at a lower rank than less skilled men for decades. Fukuda still teaches judo and is now one of only three people in the world to reach the rank of 10th dan. [Via The Daily What]
