Dart boosts Purple Dragon martial artsOne lucky youngster is set to benefit from the many advantages the Purple Dragon martial arts programme can bring, further to Dart’s recent sponsorship of the Purple Dragon martial arts scholarship programme.

Aimed at assisting youngsters who may be disadvantaged or unable to find the funds to enable them to participate in this important martial arts initiative, the Purple Dragon scholarship programme has been identified by many corporate sponsors as an extremely worthwhile cause.

Juliet Du Feu, VP Human Resources explained why the company decided to participate:

“Sports programmes of any kind are extremely beneficial for young people because they learn to develop so many important skills apart from the sport itself, such as the importance of discipline, good time-keeping and good sportsmanship, as well as developing mental strength. The Purple Dragon martial arts programme is an excellent opportunity for positive growth for Cayman’s youth and we are proud to be part of the scholarship programme and assist a young person in taking part in this rewarding initiative”.

The scholarship programme places emphasis on accountability and the youngsters involved are expected to show dedication by signing an agreement committing to regular attendance, timeliness, maintenance of school grades and behaviour reflecting respect for individuals and property. As a scholarship sponsor, Dart will receive regular updates from Purple Dragon teachers, parents, school and counselors, ensuring they are kept abreast of the performance of the students.

Purple Dragon’s Sensei Floyd Baptiste was delighted that such a significant sponsor as Dart has agreed to come on board. “Our scholarship programme is really gaining momentum now as an increasing number of corporate sponsors have joined us in assisting Cayman’s youth in such a positive way. It is through the generosity of companies such as Dart that we are able to take young people who may not otherwise have the means to participate and work with them to develop them into skilled athletes as well as productive and positive young men and women”, Sensei Floyd said.
