Sometimes I daydream and imagine myself training with martial arts legends. Imagine being a student of Jigoro Kano - yes, legendary master and creator of modern day Judo. The thought itself almost makes my head explode. Now imagine training with him, being a female and just receiving your 10th Dan in Judo. Well Keiko Fukuda did just that. Keiko is one of 4 people in the world ever to receive the prestigious honor of 10th Dan, and, to top that off, she is the only female to do so. She is an ass kicking 98 years old and she still teaches in Noe Valley, San Francisco.

Watch this video, learn some history and be inspired, grapplers.
