Thanks to a longstanding friendship between Gayle Fillman Sensei at Ukiah Aikido and Keiko Fukuda, 9th Dan Judo, we were graced with a visit by this 96 year old - the Ukiah Daily Journal (http://www.ukiahdailyjournal.com/community/ci_12475716) runs a short version of a longer article that will appear in the iaido journal. Additional links to follow.
Nice article, Janet. Congratulations for having it published and thank you for sharing it with all of us.

Thank you Pat. I'm sorry I never got to train with her in her prime!
The Daily Journal archives and then charges people to see articles so I posted a version at http://zanshinart.com/UkiahAikido/fukuda.html

One of my judo instructors trained with Keiko Fukuda when she (my instructor, that is) was a child. She mentioned it in passing the other night. It went totally over my head - I didn't realize who she was talking about til the next day. :blush: I'll have to see if I can get some more stories out of her.
