THIS VIDEO WAS TAKEN ON HOLY THURSDAY 2006 IN MY HOUSE IN MURCIA, NEGROS OCCIDENTAL. MURCIA IS A MUNICIPALITY IN NEGROS OCCIDENTAL. A PART OF WESTERN VISAYAS,REGION 6 OF THE PHILIPPINES.
IN THE VIDEO ARE TAPADISTAS ENJOYING THE HOLY WEEK WITH A LIGHT PRACTICE. EVERY HOLY THURSDAY WE CELEBRATE THE LAST SUPPER OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE CATHOLIC FILIPINOS. IN OUR HOUSE WE USUALLY HAVE A RE-ENACTMENT OF THE LAST SUPPER DURING LUNCH TIME.
My fellow doctors were present. They compose the core members of CMAS (Conceptual Martial Arts Society) Iloilo City. They are Dr. Rey Mollenido( Head Tuburan Chapter, Iloilo), Dr. Jason Rojas(Head Texas. USA), and Dr. Eugene Alicante. The head of the Iloilo Chapter is Dr. Raymund Antonio A. Maguad(author). My guests were GM Benfredo Lobrido(Headmaster -ORIGINAL FILIPINO TAPADO), GM Elmer Montoyo Sr.(Filipino Tang Soo Do/Senior Instructor OFT), Senior Instructor Hans Alojado, SI James Sy, Jr., SI Joefrey Deriada and Moises"Jung-Jung" Nifras.
GM Lobrido gave us a Tapado Clinic to polish our strikes. He taught us how to improve our speed, strength and skill.
Tapado is a simple but effective art. It is easy to learn.
Tapado videos are available in VCD format. Tapado sticks are also available. Tapado sticks are made of "tula-tula", coffee, and "calamasi" wood. They are the ones used by Tapadistas because of their resiliency and durability.
Tapado Classes are available to all. Refer to the author's past articles on Tapado for more information.
