“The pen is as mighty as the sword!”
We are extremely proud and extend BIG CONGRATULATIONS to TEAM member SAN Terence James on attaining his Bachelors of Science at the University of the West Indies!

We asked Terence why he continued to persevere and maintain a balance with his training at Purple Dragon and his academic studies and these were his comments:

“I always wanted to be an all - round student. At university I also became aware of how important persons that are able to balance different skills like martial arts are more valuable to employers- Aim for a balanced life! Exercise also plays an important role in taking more blood to the brain. The blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to the brain which improves cognitive functions. Meaning that you have improved memory and thinking capabilities. Lastly, I maintained my training while studying for the emotional benefits. Studying at the tertiary level with assigments due, laboratory reports due, projects due and exams approaching; can be stressful. However, exercise releases endorphins which reduces stress levels and this was vital for me”

Congratulations Terence! 🎉
