Greatest Achievement:

Going to the European Championships in Venice. Melissa has recently come back from the November 2012 European Championships in Venice and out of the 14 countries competing England came 2nd and bought back 14 gold medals. Melissa competed in two events and won a silver for individual and gold for teams. As of January 2013  Melissa will be training once a month with the England squad in Leicester and in May 2013 she will be up for selections for Portugal European Championships again.

The grant she was awarded was fantastic as Melissa wants to concentrate on Kumite this year which i snew contact fighting and the money she was awarded will enable her to buy Kumite GI as she has not got one and all the other equipment she will need to fight with.

At the age of 10 so far she has won 11 Gold Medals, 6 Silver Medals and 6 Bronze Medals. She is very competitive and cant wait to start fighting and entering competitions for this.
