RE/MAX-Purple Dragon scholarship contest

| 13/04/2012

(CNS): Children between the age of 6 and 16 are invited to enter a competition to win a one year scholarship at Purple Dragon, which will set them on the road of one day becoming a Purple Dragon Black Belt. Hosted by RE/MAX Cayman Islands and Purple Dragon Martial Arts, the scholarship will be given to the applicant who writes the most deserving statement, starting with: “I want to be a Purple Dragon Warrior because …”  The winner will be chosen by a panel of three judges from RE/MAX and Purple Dragon.

Submission forms are available at www.remax.ky/news.php and must be submitted by 5:00pm pm on Friday, 27 April, at the RE/MAX location in 7 Mile Shops or the Purple Dragon location at Mirco Centre.

“RE/MAX is very excited to be sponsoring a child to participate in this karate programme,” RE/MAX Broker/Owner James Bovell stated. “We feel that everyone should have the equal opportunity to become a Purple Dragon black belt, and this year membership is a great way to kick it off. This is also a great way for the children to express themselves in words.”

Purple Dragon has just celebrated the grand opening of their new dojo at the Mirco Centre with over 4,500 square feet. This larger space allows for more classes to be held, giving an opportunity to introduce karate to more people in the community.

“We are honoured that RE/MAX has decided to sponsor a child to become a Purple Dragon member,” Sensei Floyd Baptiste stated. “It is great to know that a child, who may otherwise not have the means to participate in our programme, will be able to do so.”

Karate empowers children, teenagers and adults of all ages in a safe positive environment, a release from Purple Dragon stated. Children learn the art of self defense coupled with confidence, self-control, discipline, goal setting and respect for themselves and their peers, parents and the world around them.
