TONIGHT'S FOCUS

Sensei Fran Kicks Ass
by Simone Fary

After traveling the world with the foreign service, octogenarian Fran Vall still lives life on her own terms, as a black belt in martial arts, a master teacher of skiing and snowboarding, and a quest to never stop learning. This is the story of one woman’s pursuit to redefine what it means to age.
