SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA — Sensei Keiko Fukuda of San Francisco, California, a petite 98 years old woman who is only 4-feet-10 and 100 pounds, was promoted to the rank of 10th dan (degree) black belt in Judo this week by USA Judo, the sport’s national governing body – setting the world record for the First Woman to Earn Highest Level Black Belt.
