Hi my name is Melinda Derricott, but I go by Mindi. If you ask the kid's class my name is Minnie Mouse. I joined Gracie Allegiance in July of 2022 and immediately fell in love with the school and the family environment Gracie Allegiance has to offer. I became an Assistant Coach for kids classes this year and love teaching the kids; playing games with them and watching them grow not just as students but as individuals. I competed in my first tournament at the 2023 Arnold Classic and went 10-1 with ten submissions to win double gold. As well as competing at Grappling Industries in Newark winning double gold and silver. Leaving my record at 16 wins with 14 by submission.
