“Wax on, Wax off” is a simple phrase many of us remember
from the 80’s movie “The Karate Kid.” We
probably all remember the closing scene, of a young Ralph Macchio in the
character’s signature move, the Crane.
Not so well known is the creator of that signature move,
Darryl Vidal, a Murrieta resident.
“Darryl volunteers in our neighborhoods, interacts with our
families and is the most humble of men I have met,” said Assemblywoman Melissa
Melendez when she presented Darryl and his wife April, with a Certificate for
their contributions to the community.
April Vidal teaches dance and Darryl teaches karate at a
discounted rate through the City of Murrieta to provide more affordable
services to families.
“I’m proud to recognize Darryl and April as my July ‘Power
to the People” recipients for all they do to make our district a better place
to live,” Melendez said.
“I’ve never met any of my local elected officials,” Darryl
Vidal said during the brief ceremony at the Assemblywoman’s district
office. “It’s a privilege for me to meet
Melissa and I’m honored she’d take the time to honor me and my wife.”
Every month Assemblywoman Melendez recognizes residents and
businesses in the 67th Assembly District who significantly impact
the lives of others. If you know of
someone who deserves the ‘Power to the People” award, please contact Melendez’
district office at 951-894-1232 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
