Sammy-Jo is a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Gary Davies and an active competitor.

Sammy-Jo started her Martial Arts training with Tae Kwon Do when she was 5 years old and competed in multiple competitions across the UK. She holds a Black Belt which she achieved at the age of 11. Sammy-Jo ventured into Jiu Jitsu at the age of 15 with the RGA Taunton kids program and began volunteering in the kids classes when she turned 16.
