Tatakai Fightwear, President
 
I just saw this in the Atama BJJ section and came in here to see if there was a discussion yet.

As I am sure most, if not all of you, know that she was the last surviving person to train directly under Kano. She was the first woman to hold the ranks of roku-dan, k?-dan, and the only woman to ever be awarded j?-dan.

She has been a huge part of a sport that has touched so many lives and will be missed by many. Phone Post

RIP to an amazing woman. Very glad I had a chance to visit her last year. Hopefully the documentary "Mrs.Judo" about her life will come out soon.

We posted a small tribute to her on our Facebook page.
