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

Latest

Our inspiring story of the day concerns Sensei Keiko Fukuda, who was just promoted to 10th degree black belt, judo’s highest level.

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]
