Description

This is a hand carved, hand printed linocut portrait of the great judoka, Keiko Fukuda. I hand make each print, so every print has it's own unique blemishes and quirks, as hand made things will. The ink is a lightened oil-based Prussion Blue, the print image measures slightly larger than 8 x 10" and the print measures 11" x 14".

I hand sign and title each print. Some of these prints have been donated to Sensei Fukuda's Foundation to help fund judo schools in rural India.

Keiko Fukuda (April 12, 1913 – February 9, 2013) was a Japanese American judoka / martial artist. She was the highest-ranked female judoka in history, holding the rank of 9th dan from the Kodokan (2006), and 10th dan from USA Judo (July 2011) and from the United States Judo Federation (USJF) (September 2011), and was the last surviving student of judo's founder, Jigorō Kanō

She was a revolutionary pioneer of women's judo. In 2006 the Kodokan promoted Fukuda to 9th dan. She is also the first and, so far, only woman to have been promoted to 10th dan in the art of judo. After completing her formal education in Japan, Fukuda visited the United States of America to teach in the 1950s and 1960s, and eventually settled in San Francisco. She continued to teach her art in the San Francisco Bay Area until her death in 2013.

A film was made about Fukuda Sensei, Mrs. Judo, by Yuriko Gamo Romer. THe trailer can be found on yourtube.
