Team-M first took to the competition stage at the 2008 Detroit Nationals, represented by Coaches Anh, Huy, Long and Alvin. It was the eye-opener when none of them qualified for the US National Team. Determined to prove their worth, Team-M returned the following year, and Coach Alvin, Coach Albert, and Rocky (a former team member), became the first members to join Team USA.
Inspired by their success, Team-M strived to compete on both the National and International stage. By 2014 the team had 20 athletes on the National Team. In addition, Coaches Huy, Alvin and Albert made history by competing in the Senior Male Recognized Team division at the 2014 World Taekwondo Team Championships and bringing back the only Gold Medal in that division for the United States.
