The Toronto Wado-Kai Yudansha, or active black-belt members, collectively represents the key values of our organization. This group meets monthly to train, refine basics, align organizational ideology and build a cohesive team. This collaborative context is built around the concept that everyone has something to teach and that everyone has something to learn. Synergy is the outcome of our diversity. Led by Sensei Manara, this group is able to develop by harmonizing its different experience, ideas, knowledge and opinions. In order to overcome the challenge of a large international organization, regional Yudansha groups meet and senior ambassadors travel to aid in the integration of the team.
