Report on 3rd Tong-Il Moo-Do Workshop in Japan
The workshop was held from Feb. 10 to 17. Because of the exam period of the universities, 4 students couldn't attend and only 11 could. 2 of them were sisters.

Our Purpose were

1) to establish 12 TIMD clubs in campuses
2) to prepare for the upcoming tournament in Korea.

During the opening ceremony, Mr. Tada, the head of the education dept. of CARP HQ?and the instructor of Chon-Dul-Soo, said, "We have to spread out TIMD more." "When we become alone, or are confronted with a difficulty or powerful enemy, we have to admit our weakness as well as strength." "When we work with Heaven, we become truly strong. And that strength will change into gentleness."

Every day we trained for 3 hours in the morning, and 2 hours and half in the afternoon, and practiced kicking half an hour using mitt.

During the first half period, we focused our training for the tournament, using "Ki" power against punching and kicking without retreat. Philippine instructor Master Rico Santos who had been teaching self-defense using "Ki" for years gave us many practical advices for this and also taught self-defense. The students came to realize the greatness of "Ki" power. Mr. Matsuzaki who is taking "Aiki-do" course in his university became his good partner and made the training more stimulating. Master Tae Won Kim explained the basic of the circular movement and kicking clearly. Both instructors sacrificed their precious time for this workshop till Feb. 14. The students had to learn many things during this short period and suffered by the muscle pain, but persevered.

During the second half period, the training was focused upon the basics including the circular techniques, falling, and forms, One Step Sparring to prepare for the promotion test on Feb. 17. One morning the students were facing the physical limitation especially in practicing all kinds of kicks without so much rest on Feb. 15. Then after lunch, 5 black belts were so determined that instead of taking rest, they continued to practice forms with shout which we could hear from outside. Other students, being stimulated by them, also practiced outside that time. The lower belts students, who also committed themselves to catch up quickly, practiced every day so hard by helping each other . And we were so fortunate because Master Kensaku Takahashi who was visiting his home town came on Feb. 16, and made the workshop more exciting. He gave clear and detailed explanation of techniques, and his presence itself was such a benefit for the students. Every evening, we spent one hour from 8:30pm in listening to the testimonies and lectures of the Masters.

The first night, Master James Paranada Jr. , who was the 3rd president of TIMD in Philippine, shared with us his precious experience of starting TIMD clubs in the universities in Philippine. His talk included, "One of the qualification of attaining the first degree of black belt was the ability of giving TIMD philosophy lecture." "Even though we were not accepted in the campuses, we gained the membership by practicing in the parks." "We went to different campuses and helped each other to start TIMD clubs."

2 nights were spent by Master Hoshiko's presentation of "The Philosophy of Martial Arts" (from TIMD manual) using power point. One of the students was so inspired by the presentation that he himself wants to give this presentation after going back. Other student wrote that he had gained a lot from the lecture material.

At night of Feb. 16, Master Takahashi answered the questions and gave us a great hope and vision of TIMD by sharing his real life experience of TIMD.

One day before the test, all of a sudden, the coach of junior-high school baseball team, came to the Dojung asking if we could show some of the techniques to straighten up some of his team members because they were mentally off the center. Immediately I accepted his request and prepared for the demonstration in less than one hour. Then 25 junior high school students, 6 mothers, and the coach?gathered in the Dojung.

At first, Master Hoshiko introduced Dr. Sun Myung Moon as the Inspirator of TIMD and Dr. Seuk as its founder, and briefly explained about TIMD. The demonstration was about 20 minutes. All of us became one as we took seriously this event. During?the performance of the form of 4 Position Foundation, the audience listened to the lecture of 3 Great Blessings. The audience was nervous at the beginning, but gradually started to applause and enjoyed.

On Feb. 17, the final day, the promotion test was conducted under the supervision of Master Takahashi, and the participants challenged at their limitation. At result, 2 of them were promoted to the first degree of Black Belt.

Among them, there were 3 beginners, but they had progressed so quickly within such a short period. There were also the opportunities of developing true brother- and- sisterhood, and tearful sharing.

Just one week of the workshop has given us a wonderful experience!

Hoshiko Takamitsu
President of TIMD Federation of Japan
