We’ve fallen back an hour and hopefully gained a little sleep. After a super busy October — 1 belt awards ceremony, 2 belt tests, 3 tournaments, 1 buddy bash, and 1 Halloween party (plus regular classes and training 6 days a week) — everyone at Quest deserved that extra hour of Daylight Saving Time.
BELT AWARDS & TESTS
Students who passed the 49th Quest Belt Test last September 29th received their hard-earned awards on the evening of October 5th. On the 16th and 17th, a different group of students persevered to earn their Yellow Stripes. Finally, on the 27th, the most intrepid and courageous Taeki and Beginner students we’ve ever seen took up the courage to test their skills. As with every belt test, these were milestones that we are proud to have helped our students achieve.
On October 5th, the same day a number of Quest students were receiving their belt awards, 4 of our Fight Team athletes were testing their mettle in Las Vegas at the World Taekwondo President’s Cup Championship. Chloe Towns, Tyler Tabil, RJ Moore, and Sachi Moore brought the Quest spirit to the games and gained invaluable experience to help fuel their desire to be better and come back for the gold.
On Oct. 21st, our athletes competed at the California Open Championship held at CalState Dominguez Hills’ Toro Gym. The results were outstanding!
A week after the CA Open, our athletes headed to Placentia for the 2nd Elite Taekwondo Championships. It was a fun and memorable day for all. We were especially blessed that amongst the athletes in the Female Cadet World Class Sparring Divisions, Sachi Moore and Clare Trinh were each awarded U.S. Open registration for winning Gold in their respective weight divisions. We look forward to seeing them take on the world in Vegas this coming January!
10/14 Buddy Bash: Quest students brought their buddies to meet, greet, play and eat together as they learned about Taekwondo and Quest culture. Each guest received a Quest t-shirt, fidget spinner, and special membership offer to cap off their day.
10/30 Quest-O-Ween/Trunk-Or-Treat: Guys, girls and ghouls alike came together on the eve of Halloween for a ghastly class session and Trunk-or-treat. The heroes, heroines, dinos, princesses, wizards and miscellaneous creatures ran the “Zombie” and “Eyeball” relays, played “Monster Freeze”, and got their share of prizes and giveaways. As the sun began to set, car trunks got bedazzled or spooked out for the Trunk-or-Treat. Not a single tombstone was left unturned as parents and kids got into the spirt of All Hallows Eve.
Thank you all for your support, participation, and year-long commitment to making this October yet another success as we continue our “Quest to go above and beyond.”
