 Later Sensei Johnny Tenegra merged his two aikido organizations into one under the name of the Pilipinas Aikido Propagation Association – PAPA (PAPA AIKIDO) “The Hombu Loyalists Group," a registered national aikido organization.

PILIPINAS AIKIDO PROPAGATION ASSOCIATION – PAPA (PAPA Aikido) was founded at the early time when Aikido is still in its infancy and growing stage, not so popular and far behind compared to judo and karate at that time.  Sensei Johnny Tenegra and his organization, the Pilipinas Aikido Propagation – PAPA (PAPA Aikido) helps a lot in aikido propagations and make Aikido more popular and known.  Sensei Johnny Tenegra and PAPA Aikido introduced and propagate aikido to the general public, to Malacanan Palace, to the military, to organizations, to associations and etcs.  PAPA Aikido is known nationally and internationally.  Hosted several masters / senseis of different foreign aikido organizations.  Produced talented students locally and internationally.  He spent money, time, efforts, and any available resources in aikido propagations.  Sensei Johnny Tenegra used newspapers, T.V. demonstrations and exhibitions outdoors or indoors, with mats or no mats and other means in Aikido Propagations.

Sensei Johnny Tenegra’s leadership efforts, dedication and hard work in aikido propagations earned him and his PAPA Aikido organization a recognition, authorization, and certification from HOMBU and he was appointed SOLE AIKIDO AREA REPRESENTATIVE of Aikikai Foundation / Aikido World Headquarters (HOMBU) Tokyo, Japan, in the Philippines to organize, develop, and propagate aikido by the Great Beloved Doshu Kisshomaru Ueshiba, President of Hombu and by the Great Beloved master Kisaburo Osawa, General Director of Hombu.

His organization, the Pilipinas Aikido Propagation Association – PAPA (PAPA Aikido) “The Hombu Loyalists Group” was appointed, certified and authorized SOLE AIKIDO ORGANIZATION IN THE PHILIPPINES of Aikikai Foundation / Aikido World headquarters (HOMBU) Tokyo, Japan by the Great Beloved Doshu Kisshomaru Ueshiba and by the Great Beloved master Kisaburo Osawa for instructions and training in the art of Aikido.

MOST OF THOSE PRESENT PHILIPPINE AIKIDO ORGANIZATIONS DO NOT EXIST DURING PAPA AIKIDO PROPAGATIONS EVEN FOR A LONG TIME AFTER HOMBU AUTHORIZED AND RECOGNIZED PILIPINAS AIKIDO PROPAGATION ASSOCIATION (PAPA AIKIDO) AS HOMBU SOLE AIKIDO ORGANIZATION IN THE PHILIPPINES AND THOSE WHO EXIST LATER WERE UNDER PAPA AIKIDO UMBRELLA.  Some of the aikido organizations that affiliated with PAPA Aikido are MINADANAO AIKIDO PROPAGATION ASSOCIATION (MAPA) headed by Sensei Javier, former student of Sensei Johnny Tenegra, covers Mindanao area, and CEBU AIKIDO CLUB headed by Sensei Tian, Sensei Buot and Grand Master Chiuten, all friends of Sensei Johnny Tenegra, covers Visayas area.

Later, he temporarily left his organization for a month trip abroad for aikido and business.  He temporarily assigned (Capt. Nicdao) an advisor/member as temporary caretaker with the help of instructors, officers, advisers, and members until his return from the trip.

Unfortunately, while abroad, he met an accident that delay his return, then before his trip back home, another accident which again delayed him in returning home.  Then later he was diagnosed with cancer.  He was treated with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.  He decided to stay for a while abroad for treatments.

Despite the accidents and cancer, Sensei Johnny Tenegra is active in Aikido.  He founded the Pilipinas Aikido Propagation Association – PAPA in USA (PAPA Aikido USA) “The Hombu Loyalists Group” that will continue the work / mission in aikido propagations of the Pilipinas Aikido Propagation Association – PAPA (PAPA Aikido) in the Philippines “The Hombu Loyalists Group” to spread and propagate traditional aikido based on the teaching of Great Beloved O’Sensei Morihei Ueshiba to other countries / overseas / abroad.  There are schools / dojos in different locations abroad and plans to expand.

PAPA Aikido USA and PAPA Aikido are ONE only in different countries.  They coordinateate and work together for the common good of everybody / members and for the good of the whole organizations as ONE.

THOUGHTS OF THE DAY

-          The color of the belt, certificate and rank represent the level of skill acquired.  The question is, can you defend it?  Are you worth it?

-          Practice, practice, practice is the key word.  Right and constant practice lead to mastery and perfection.  In mastery and perfection come real satisfaction.

-          Acquiring the mastery skill of the arts is a long process.  There is no shortcut to it.  It cannot be done overnight.

-          Some people have doubts on what some people “say” but believe on the doings they “see.”  Translation: Actions speak more than words.

-          Remember the Great Beloved O’Sensei Morihei Ueshiba is DANLESS (no rank).  He humbly use O’Sensei (Great Teacher) as title.  He even sometimes use white uniform.  He is humble, simple, modest, but the greatest.  Can you be a follower of the Great Beloved O’Sensei?  Think of it.

FRIENDSHIP – Is a way to harmony, love, and peace.
