1st Tong-Il Moo Do Martial Arts Philosophy Seminar in Tokyo

The Tong Il Moo Do Phil-Japan Organization held a half-day Martial Arts philosophy seminar on July 6, 2008 in Nakameguro Square, Meguro-ku, and Tokyo, Japan with the Theme: “MARTIAL ARTS FOR A BETTER SOCIETY AND THE WORLD”. There were 26 participants came including our special guests from the Philippine Overseas Labor Office of the Philippine Embassy, who are also our TIMDP-J advisers, the Labor Attache Atty. Danilo P. Cruz and Welfare Officer Mr. Saul De Vries. The President of Theatro Kanto Organization (TKO) in Japan, Ms. Mary Nihie and the new President of Japan Association of Nuevo Ecijanos (JANE), Ms. Francisca dela Cruz were also present.

The purpose of the said seminar is to further the education of our members on TIMD Philosophy as well as to give knowledge of what is TIMD to the new comers. Mr. Robert Alcamfor, Pres. of TIMDP-J gave the welcome address to the guests and participants as well as reading the special message from Master James Paranada, one of the pioneers of TIMDP-J in Tokyo and followed by a Video Presentation of the activities of Tong Il Moo Do Phil-Japan and World Tong-Il Moo Do Federation. Atty. Danilo P. Cruz gave a very powerful and inspiring message to the members and the participants.

He said: “We, at the Philippine Overseas Labor Office, cannot pass this opportunity to personally meet the members and officers of Tong-Il Moo Do Phil.-Japan and extend our sincere appreciation for your great work in the joint celebration of Migrant Worker’s Day and 110th anniversary of Philippine Independence. We are truly pleased to see your dedication in fulfilling your assigned responsibilities before and during the said event. We hope that you will not waver in helping us undertake worthy activities for overseas Filipino workers and other Filipinos here in Japan.

I would also like to congratulate your organization for conducting this seminar on Martial Arts. According to Gaku Homma, a respected and known Martial Artist, Martial Arts is actually a study of oneself. This means that those of you who are participating in this seminar would actually be studying yourselves. I hope that you will see martial arts beyond self-discipline, self-control and self-defense I hope that you will see martial arts as a means in opening up yourselves for the service of others. Your theme conforms to the real purpose of martial arts.

The principles of Tong-Il Moo Do are truly admirable and worth pursuing. It emphasizes the importance of having mature character and capacity to love; of establishing a happy and healthy family and of using creative abilities for the good of society. If all of us can apply these principles in our daily lives, then there is no reason why we cannot expect to have a better society and a better world”. Some of his messages were spoken in Tagalog.

Master Takamitsu Hoshiko, Pres. of the World Tong-Il Moo Do Federation Japan, was the lecturer of the day. He lectured the Spiritual Origin in Martial Arts and the Philosophy of Tong-Il Moo Do on Character Education. His lecture was very encouraging and very inspiring and everyone seemed to be very attentive. After the lecture, some participants signed up for regular membership and others, associate membership. It was an exciting day for all of us. We also prepared snacks and drinks for everybody and we enjoyed together. Ms. Mary Nihie delivered her very inspiring closing remarks and she personally expressed her support and even said that she wants to be a member of Tong-Il Moo Do.

Lastly, congratulations to all the members and Officers of Tong-Il Moo Do Phil-Japan for the successful 1st TIMD seminar in 2008 and also to our sisters who spent sleepless night just to prepare our snacks.
