Quest Taekwondo instructor Jason Featherstone has been promoted to 2nd dan blackbelt.

He received confirmation at the British Taekwondo Dan Promotion test centre at the Lee Westwood Sports Centre at Nottingham University.

Jason was presented with his 2nd Dan certificate by Team GB heavyweight +80kg fighter Mahama Cho, who will be competing in the Olympic Games in Rio this summer.

A week later Jason and his daughter Megan travelled to Barnsley to attend a Quest seminar held by Cho.

The event brought together all Quest clubs from around the country.

Megan gained valuable expertise and strategies in preparation for her next competition at the Doncaster Open next month.

She recently competed in the fifth Yorkshire Open in Bradford, taking a bronze medal in the senior -62kg.

It was her first competition back after injury, and she narrowly lost in the quarter finals, 14-9 to a strong opponent.
