Karate program promotes community service

Special to the PARADE

Mia Escamilla recently spent a Saturday morning at South Padre Island for more than just fun in the sun.
The 12-year-old brown belt joined her martial arts team from Metamorphix Martial Arts in Harlingen for an Earth Day Adopt-a-Beach cleanup.

“This was my way, our way, to help our community by keeping our beaches clean,” she said. “Being able to serve our community, while helping our environment is a good feeling.”

As an aspiring martial artist, her goal is to make this world a better place and she said her instructor and owner of Metamorphix Martial Arts, Anastacia Ortiz is instilling these values in all her students.
