East L.A. Sports Scene follows its commitment to bring attention to all sports that have an impact on both our youth, and our community. Join us as we present the perfect story about the growing sport of Karate and the Martial Arts. We invited Enrique Mares, “Sensei” (Translation: Instructor) and Director of the Boyle Heights Karate-Do, to tell us about the outstanding program he conducts on a year-round basis. Also, you will meet Enrique’s granddaughter, Mariel Mares, who has won the privilege to compete at this year’s USA National Karate Championships & US Team Trials in Greenville, So. Carolina, July 9-14. In rounding out this family’s involvement, you will meet Enrique’s son, Ramon Mares, a former competitor at the National Championships, who now serves as an instructor at the Karate-Do. Parents may come during one of the three weekly classes to obtain more info on registering their children. Minimum age for beginners is 8.
