EDINBURGH, UK: British Judo Association president and judo expert George Kerr from Edinburgh today received the Order of the Rising Sun at a ceremony held at the official residence of the Japanese Consul-General, Masataka Tarahara. The badge which features rays of sunlight from the rising sun is considered to be one of the highest honours from Japan and is generally only awarded to politicians, military leaders, or royalty. Last year he was given the sport's greatest honour when he was awarded the 10th Dan, a title held by only five other people in the world. Pictured George Kerr with the Order of the Rising Sun medal.
