The Senior Jundokan Leaders are grateful to Kancho
for recognizing a need and promptly organizing this conference. We
appreciate Kancho for, not only asking, but encouraging , open and
truthful discussions regarding present challenges and future
opportunities with respect to the Jundokan.
An interpreter was
provided for this conference which greatly facilitated the necessary
flow of discussion and enabling everyone to listen and share their ideas
respectfully and with clarity.
In conclusion of our conference,
The following decisions have been reached by unanimous consensus.
The creation of a strong and effective communication mechanism.
To provide quality dialogue for the benefit of all Jundokan members.
that communication regarding important matters will be directed by the
Jundokan through their Sensei. The decision of what seminars/
etc. a Jundokan student attends, is best decided by his/
her Sensei. As the Sensei is in the best position to advice the
student whether the event/ seminar is appropriate or beneficial to the
individual student's development.
It has been discussed and agreed upon that the Jundokan is not well served
by having an ultimatum placed on it's members. Therefore, effective immediately,
the letter(s) regarding Taira Sensei have been removed from the website.
The Senior Jundokan Leadership
have commissioned the creation of Three North American Directors
Sensei Michael Mancuso
Sensei Chuck Merriman
Sensei Yurio Nakada
to greatly improve dialogue with all North American Dojos.
This new Executive structure has been approved by
