Inspiration for our judokas

10th Dan Keiko Fukuda,
Last Student of Jigoro Kano, passes

Keiko Fukuda, the first woman awarded the rank of 10th dan in judo, passed away yesterday in San Francisco. She was 99.

“This is a dream come true,” Fukuda said in the summer of 2011, shortly after she was awarded judo’s highest rank by USA Judo, the national governing body for the Olympic sport in the United States.

Fukuda’s first reaction was “total surprise,” according to her caretaker, Shelley Fernandez, interviewed at the time. Then came a sense of great pride, “especially knowing that this promotion would help women’s judo,” Fukuda told Fernandez.

The last surviving student of the founder of judo, Jigoro Kano, Fukuda had separated from tradition as a young woman, choosing to train in judo under Kano rather than marry.

Fukuda eventually followed Kano’s wish that she and other students teach judo around the world. She came to the United States to do just that in 1966. She became a leader in women’s rights by example and voice, forcing away the ceiling that had prevented her from ascending in rank sooner.

Fukuda’s life is the subject of a documentary, ”Mrs. Judo: Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful.” Go to the website for trailers to the film at

USA Judo will report details on services as soon as they are available.

Happy birthday to the founder of Judo, Kanō Jigorō! Without him, the characters jū (柔) and dō (道) would mean nothing but "gentle way." But with him, Judo means a way of life to judoka around the world.


It's Throwing Technique Tuesday! Nage-Waza, the Japanese term for a grappling technique that involves off-balancing or lifting an opponent, and throwing them to the ground. Throws usually involve a pulling and rotating motion, the one performing the throw usually stays balanced on their feet - standing techniques (tachi-waza). However regularly when performing the throw both fighters finish on the ground. Certain throwing techniques called sacrifice throws (sutemi-waza) involve putting oneself in a potentially unfavorable position, such as on the ground, in order to execute a throw.
