I just read about this. I'm amazed that a woman that old can still throw. I didn't realize it was possible for there to be any surviving students of Kano.

I don't believe Fukuda-sensei is still throwing anyone, although I believe she was doing so well into her eighties.

Does her school really not have a website? Wiki lists http://www.joshijudo.org/ but it's "down for reconstruction". If they really don't have a website, I'd be more than happy to make one for them.

I am saddened to report that Keiko Fukuda Sensei passed away yesterday. She was an amazing woman who was very much a head of her time.

Aw man, that's sad news. She more than deserved her Judan, exceptional as she was!
