Dr. Pritchett has put many years of research into the development of the San Da-JiuJitsu-Do system of self defense, and firmly believes that those concepts should be carried over into our educational pursuits.
This understanding has led him to combine various components of San-Da-JiuJitsu-Do to improve concentration, focus, behavior, self control, inner strength, determination and persistence. This was performed on students who were labeled “at risk” by their schools and were never exposed to the martial arts prior to his study. More than 70% of those students showed improvement academically with higher test scores.
Dr. Pritchett conducted his Master's thesis using proper nutrition and its correlation with academic performance, but feels his greatest achievement was showing the direct relationship between academics and the foundational components of the martial arts.
Dr. Pritchett has an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership, and is continuing to use San Da-JiuJitsu as a platform to help students of all ages and backgrounds reach their full potential.
