“From the moment we first walked into the Quest Center, we could tell it was different. The teachers were extremely engaged and friendly, especially with the younger students. There was a sense of community among the staff, students, and family members, and we were impressed by how supportive and encouraging everyone was to each other.
At the Quest Center, children are taught to “use their voice” and speak up for themselves, as well as ask questions. DQC has taught my reserved daughter the importance of using her voice and my energetic son the importance of focus.
The material is broken down into small movements, and practiced until it is mastered. Even at the black belt level, students frequently revisit the lower belt level material, to stay proficient but also to be able to teach the younger students. The instructors recognized the desire in my children to mentor others. They fostered this and developed a program that allows youth who are leaders to serve as mentors.
Most importantly, the Quest Center focuses on helping people become their best selves. Our son says, “It is the one place I can truly be myself,” and our daughter says, “It is my place to shine.” We are grateful for the many blessings the Quest Center has given our family. That is why we have stayed so many years.”
