Da T.yuy Files, the first and only and longest running comedy talk show on local cable TV in Bacolod City and Negros Occidental, will be featuring a martial artist guest for a second time in its 6 years run as a program that educates and entertains. T'yuy, hosted by Anthony Peter Yulo, will premiere its feature episode on Yuishinkai Aikido this coming Friday, March 1, 2013, 10:00 PM on OnTV12 (Channel 32). Guest will be Lodel Magbanua Sensei, Chief Instructor of Bacolod Aikido Yuishinkai (BAY), which is the official representative of Ki Association international (KI-AI) of Philippine Aikido pioneer Ernesto “Ernie” T. Talag Sensei, 6th Dan Aikido Yuishinkai, which in turn is affiliated with Aikido Yuishinkai International (AYI) of Maruyama, Koretoshi Sensei (B: 1936), an uchideshi “inner disciple” of Aikido Founder Ueshiba, Morihei (1883-1969). Magbanua, with the help of Yulo and other BAY members, sponsored Talag Sensei to conduct the Yuishinkai Aikido Seminar & Belting Advancement last September 8, 2012 at the 3/F High School Bldg., St. John’s Institute (Hua Ming), Hilado St., Bacolod City, which was attended by 19 aikidokas from four Bacolod groups. Magbanua Sensei, a nephew of 1964 Asian karate champion Jimmy Magbanua of Bacolod, used to train in Aikido under Rene F. Cornel Sensei (1951-2005) in Bacolod and upon the death of Cornel sensei, started his studies with Talag Sensei in Manila in 1991, while managing NGO’s; Cornel Sensei was once Talag Sensei’s representative in Bacolod. Magbanua Sensei has a small group in Bacolod, the latest revival of which was last September 2011. Da T.yuy Files started going on air in 2007 and has over the years tackled serious issues but from a relatively comedic perspective to further liven the discussion. The first martial artist guest was James U. Sy Jr., Founder/Master of the Conceptual Arnis System and the Conceptual Martial Arts Society (CMAS), Inc. with hi students Montano Mondia IV and Eirine Kimberly O. Longno. March 1, 2013 will be the premier of the Yuishinkai Aikido episode and succeeding replays will be the following week, MWF 10:00-11:00 PM and TTHS 3:00-4:00 PM.
