Sometimes an often over used expression, not in this case. What an unfreakingly -believable accomplishment.............AWESOME.

98-year-old woman becomes first woman ever to earn Judo's highest-degree black belt

s earning a black belt on your life list? Then this elderly woman in San Francisco just might be your ultimate hero.

Just two years before her 100th birthday, Sensei Keiko Fukuda has become the first woman to achieve a tenth-degree black belt—the highest rank in the martial art and combat sport Judo. Fukuda is now one of only four living people who've earned the tenth-degree (or dan) black belt. To put the accomplishment into better perspective, throughout history, only sixteen people have ever achieved this honor.

Highly recommend watching the vid in full...............you might learn something about character and culture that puts ours to utter shame. Some of the very things I respect and admire most-------desire--passion--commitment ---beauty of mind body and soul wrapped into one 98 years young and very very special lady.

Really cool stuff.
