Keiko Fukuda of San Francisco, California, was promoted to the rank of 10th dan (degree) black belt in Judo this week by USA Judo, the sport's national governing body. This is the highest ranking one can achieve in judo, but Fukuda is not featured in Bloody Elbow's world scouting report, nor is Fukuda being courted by the UFC, Bellator, Dream, or any other MMA organization, because Keiko Fukuda is a woman, and she's also 98 years old.

She may be a black belt but I belt I can beat her with both arms tied behind my back.

On a serious note, this is truly inspiring. I bet 99.9 percent of us will not be able to walk when we are her age - if we live to be her age.
