July 2 & 3 2016 - A big Congrats to Abagail and Mackenzie Harvey for placing second in the Youth Nage-No- Kata competition at the USJF/JA Nationals in Irvine California. Great Job Girls!!!!
We had five Athletes represent us two weeks ago at the USJF/JA Summer Nationals. We are again proud to have two more MVJ Athletes represent us in the upcoming 2016 Junior US Open in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on July 23rd weekend.
Last year Dorian Mellon placed third in the Juv A +64KG division and he also placed second in the Golden Score Competition. This year he is moving up an age division and we are hoping he can repeat his performance of last year.
Gavin Mellon is looking to get back on the podium on the National scene after placing 3rd at the USJF/JA Winter Nationals but missing out at the USJF/JA Summer Nationals.
