LOBRIDO-MAMAR RENUNION IN KAFT TREES,MURCIA, NEGROS OCCIDENTAL

The members of the Original Filipino Tapado Longstick Fighting Association were invited in the Mamar-Lobrido Family reunion in Kaft Trees, Murcia, Negros Occidental to perform an exhibition. They were invited by Grandmaster Benefredo Lobrido . We enjoyed the food and the warm reception of the family. We are thankful to our Grandmaster to have invited us to their family reunion.We are honored to be your students. Here is a video clip showing GM Lobrido and Senior instructor Elmer "Don-Don" P. Montoyo Jr doing basics of Original Filipino Tapado. GM Lobrdio is feeding the stick to SI Montoyo. SI Montoyo is the one attacking/ practicing his strikes. This is risky for the feeder(GM Lobrido) since he has no armor and there is always a risk of getting hit . The strikes are given in full speed and strength. video video video video
This is a video clip taken by me before the exhibition started. This is Kaft Trees, Murcia, Negros Occidental. video

Some basic things about the Visayas

THE PHILIPPINES : WESTERN VISAYAS

MOUNTAIN SYSTEMS:

Negros in the Visayas is divided into two by a range running from northwest to southeast, with Kanlaon Volcano as the notable peak. Panay has a range running from north to south that separates Antique from Iloilo , Capiz and Aklan.

GOOD FILIPINO VALUES

  1. HOSPITALITY
  2. CLOSE FAMILY TIES
  3. RESPECT FOR THE ELDERS
  4. FATALISTIC
  5. LOYALTY
  6. PAKIKISAMA

REGIONAL TRAITS:

The islands south and south west of Luzon belong to the Visayan. He is a happy-go-lucky man more interested in the here and now than in the past or the future. He exceeds the Tagalog in his love for the finer things of life, so much so that, in contrast with the Samtoy, he is ready to spend his last peso to enjoy life to its last drop. Because his is not compelled by his environment to work half as much as his Samtoy brother, the Visayan is a spendthrift. But like his brother in the north, he is adventurous and is afflicted with wanderlust.

The Visayan is a hedonist. Give him a jug of tuba and a piece of dried fish he will sing the wilderness into Paradise . He is a lover like the Tagalog, but he expresses his consuming passion in music, not in poetry. Thus, armed with a banduria, a ukulele or a guitar, he forgets his sorrows, even his hunger, if he is poor, by caressing the strings of his musical instrument and singing to its accompaniment.
