The story of Daystar In Action begins with a little boy, orphaned at age 10. Luckily, he came to live in the United States from the Philippines with his aunt and uncle. He was encouraged to participate in many team sports growing up. He found refuge in painting at an early age. Painting gave him solitude, peacefulness, expression, and strength.
However, he found martial arts training built his mental discipline, focus, respect, obedience, perseverance and patience.
A scholarship for Fine Arts to college paved the way to his success. Exercising was another way to stay fit and he found it exhilarating and a form of self-assurance and empowerment. Staying active was as meaningful as his painting. His martial arts mentor instilled discipline, respect and honor, confidence and how to deal with bullying.
Daystar In Action is a non-profit organization that exists to fulfill the needs and wishes of underprivileged children beyond physical fitness. It exists to establish core values, and education to empower each child for a better tomorrow.
