98-year old woman becomes one of only three 10th degree blackbelts in the world.
Check out this story we found in the San Francisco Chronicle.
98-year old Keiko Fukuda has been promoted to the rank of 10th degree blackbelt by USA Judo. It's a tremendous feat especially when you consider there are only three other 10th degree blackbelts in the world - and they're all men!
Ms. Fukuda has been practicing Judo for almost as long as she can remember. What's even more impressive, she's the last surviving student of the man who invented modern day Judo, Kano Jigoro.
Ms. Fukuda contributes her success to technique and speed. Something she passes on to the students at her academy in the Bay Area.
Keiko Fukuda is truly BORN STRONGER!
