98 Year old Female Judo Master - Keiko Fukuda

We all heard of, "my daddy is stronger than your daddy" or "Chuck Norris can beat Sean Claude Van Damme!"

How bout we try, "my grandmother can kick your mommy, daddy & Chuck Norris combine!"

The trailer is an up & coming Documentary call "Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful", which profiles the life of 98-year-old judo master Keiko Fukuda. Her destiny down the path of judo was set two generations before her, and in 1934 (at age 21) she begantraining (this was during the final period of the Samurai). Keiko is also the last living member of Kano, the founder of judo. She gave up marriage, family, and Japanese citizenship to pursue a life practicing judo. - She's the only woman in the world to receive a 10th-degree black belt.

A woman that who deserve much recognition for her accomplishment as well as influence for the world of Martial Arts for Women. Once again proving, Age & gender does not limit for someone to follow the path of a Martial arts. 
On behalf of all martial arts age young and old we all bow to you, Keiko Fukuda Sensei
I have an epiphany.  Who wish to see Baby Bruce Lee go against Master Keiko Fukuda? i do!
