Rusty, Worlds greatest judo player. by 

Rusty Kanokogi , Worlds greatest judo player..
Recieved the emperior’s award from japan, for outstanding achievments .. She holds a 7th Degree black belt.. She is undefeated in the world of judo,, even with men..
50 years ago, they gave her this award, but took it away due to the fact that it was only given to men… Now they gave it back to her.. She is now 70 years young… A wonderful woman..
I’m so proud to call her FRIEND..
