Days Gone Past: Police Judo Black Belts Meet Judo Legend

Police Judo Instructor Chin-I Hsiang and Police Judo Assistant Instructor Adelphie Cheng were fortunate to have the opportunity to attend an all-female judo training clinic sponsored by Sensei Keiko Fukuda at the Joshi Training Camp in San Jose California in 2012. At the time, Sensei Fukuda was the only living student of Kano, and despite being wheelchair bound attended the camp as she had since starting the annual kata/freestyle clinic in 1974 (Sensei Keiko Fukuda passed away in Feb 2013 at age 99). Her history as a pioneer of judo is amazing. Here is a link to a short overview of her bio:
