Tournament: 2019 International TKD Festival
Team Spirit headed to California this past weekend to the International Taekwondo Festival!! It was our fourth year competing at this competition as a team. The Spirit Animals truly shined as the wonderful and talented bunch of athletes we are. We had several astounding wins and many humble losses. Altogether, Spirit took home 12 gold medals, 15 silver, and 3 bronze. Special shoutout to two unique fighters who competed for the first time- O'shay Jordan and Danny Quinones! O’shay’s great Indomitable Spirit and Danny’s everlasting Perseverance earned them an amazing experience. Another shoutout to Andre Zaragoza for earning TWO GOLD MEDALS! Andre had a great Poomsae performance that stood out from all the rest. He also defeated two opponents and scored a total of four spinning round kicks during his sparring competition!! The rest of team also had an awesome time kicking all day long. We even won a flatscreen TV for our massive crew of competitors. Overall a fantastic trip and we can’t wait til TKDFest 2020! Thank you to Grandmaster Cheon, Ann Cheon and the entire ITF staff of volunteers and referees for another amazing year at ITF!
