Bruce Lee?

Wada's name is from Bruce Lee. Everytime he fights with bad guys, he will shout 'wo da' (in Chinese) which means 'I beat you.'
Bruce Lee is cool. He breaks wood, walls, barriers, human ones. Everyone is met with challenges. It��ïÿý�ï�ÿ�ý���ï���ÿ���ý��ïÿý���ï��ïÿý���ÿ��ïÿý���ýs life. When one is met with challenges too tough, one must face them, stand above them and conquer them ,otherwise he has failed by not trying. Bruce Lee exemplifies this virtue. He was one who wanted to share the world a beautiful art.
