Having attained such remarkable success in 2015, Team Meibukan Markham embarked on a journey for Olympic GOLD.
 
Our road map to GOLD started last year with a AAU Karate Circuit that combines “Honoring the Sport” grass roots philosophy and intense competition for youth. We returned with every athlete placing 4th or higher. For 2016, we are aiming for the Jr. Olympics and with ongoing team dedication and the continued support from all  parents, I’m confident that this will bring us one step closer to GOLD.   
 
With Karate almost sure to be an Olympic sport for 2020 in Tokyo, athletes all over the world have begun ramping up their training and setting their goals high to be the first Karate Olympians. Team Meibukan Markham is not yet mature enough for a 2020 challenge but as we continue to develop a high performance team, we will ultimately strive to earn a team spot in the 2024 Olympics.
.
Each year, our goals become higher with select participation in an increasingly difficult level of competition and its for this reason that I ask Team Meibukan Markham to continuously demonstrate excellence in all Karate activities and for parents to continue reinforcing this message. It goes without saying that parents play a critical role in our journey for GOLD.
