Hello David,

My name is Jonathan and I teach at my own Aikido dojo in NSW, Australia. I'm also one of Ernie Talag Sensei's long time students. This is a very interesting thread. Thanks for starting this. Anyway, I just wanted to inform you that Talag Sensei and Ki Association have just recently affiliated with the International Aikido Yuishinkai Association founded by Koretoshi Maruyama Shihan. Please refer to this link:

So Ki Association has official recognition now from an International Association, being under Maruyama Sensei - who was an uchi deshi of O' Sensei, as well as Koichi Tohei Sensei's Chief Instructor for many years. Maruyama Sensei actually personally sought Talag Sensei and invited him to be his representative in the Philippines. Talag Sensei accepted.

Thanks and regards.
Dear Jojo,

Please extend my warmest congratulations to Talag Sensei and the rest of his Association.
