Mrs Judo: Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful
This is the story of one of the great martial artists of the 20th century. Mrs. Judo is the story of Keiko Fukuda, the last student of Kodokan Judo founder Jigoro Kano and the first women to be awarded 10th dan in judo. This documentary is her story, from Tokyo in the 1930s where she started judo to America and her journey through the traditional world of judo. In a time when women just didn't, she was invited to study judo by Jigoro Kano himself.
Fukuda Sensei trained at the Kodokan and rose to the rank of 5th dan, the highest rank then awarded to a woman. Following a trip to the US to teach judo, she was invited to stay permanently. She remained in the US, teaching judo and perfecting her own technique, inspiring generations of students to master judo.
