Amanate, who serves as Prk. Bulak President, holds the San Lorenzo Ruiz Village (SLRV)/Prk. Bulak Martial Arts Competition semi-annually to encourage the youth to channel their energies into more fruitful pursuits and to keep them away from drugs. Over the years Amante had helped less fortunate youths have opportunities for upliftment through the martial arts. He had sent several teens to the Philippine national Wushu Championships in Manila since 1997 and entered some of them to the National Training Pool.
