This is a story of dedication to a vocation. For most of the ninety years of her life, Keiko Fukuda practiced and taught judo. Her journey involved leaving her homeland, sacrificing a family life, and pushing against the prejudices and barriers that have traditionally restricted women's lives. It was gratifying to see her receive the recognition of the worldwide judo community at the end of her life.
