Prior to the death of Hanshi Shintani the organization was primarily directed by Hanshi Shintani himself with the assistance of the senate. The senate consists of senior ranking members appointed by Hanshi Shintani. The Senate held the inaugural meeting on November 1, 1997 in Toronto at that time Hanshi Shintani signed the new constitution and named Sensei Denis Labbé his successor. Sensei Denis Labbé now heads the Shintani Wado Kai Karate Federation assisted by the Senate members.
