Storyline

Throwing thousands of years of tradition to the wind, Keiko Fukuda chose to follow her own destiny and become the highest ranking woman in judo. 'Mrs. Judo: Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful,' a 66-minute documentary film, tells the inspirational story of Fukuda's lifelong journey spanning four continents, nine decades and two distinct cultures to overcome adversity and ultimately transform into a living legend. Today, at 98, Fukuda holds the highest rank available in judo, the tenth degree. She also continues teaching judo three days a week from her San Francisco dojo and is the last living link to judo's origins. Written by Anonymous
