Article: "A Kicking Grand Ma: Old Age is a Myth"
Posted 9/26/2007 4:58pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's an article entitled "A Kicking Grand Ma: Old Age is a Myth" which is a summary of a 1978 interview with Jeanne Lieberman in France who "started learning martial arts at the tender age of 63." According to the article, she ended up receiving her black belt in aikido (under Tadashi Abe sensei), judo, and wing chun. "Mme Lieberman’s dedication paid off abundantly. She achieved such a level of prowess that she was able to perform unbelievable feats. She has demonstrated her prowess in several ways: In one demonstration she pinned a trained (black belt), 1.8 m tall, 200 kg athlete to the ground in less than one second and then repeated the feat nine times!"
