This is a work-in-progress sample clip during the making of MRS JUDO: Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful. Keiko Fukuda's destiny was set two generations before her birth, during the final days of the samurai era. In 1934, at 21 years of age, Keiko Fukuda embarked on a long journey with judo as her vehicle. This path meant giving up marriage, family, and her Japanese citizenship. She has endured war, discrimination, and crossed oceans, to become the only woman to attain 10th degree black belt. She was the last living student of judo's founder, Kano. She continued to teach until just weeks before her death in 2013.
