Samantha-Jo Jenkins

3rd DAN Black Belt

Senior Instructor

I started TaeKwonDo when I was 4 years old, following my older siblings Travis and Jackie. I found TaeKwonDo challenging and every grading was hard work. I failed a few times along the way, but this has only taught me that everything takes hard work and I wasn't ready to progress just yet. After the 10 years of hard work I had reached 2nd DAN black belt and graded to be a Trainee Instructor. 

Travis has been there for me from a young age and has continued to support me through my TaeKwonDo career. In 2010 I graded to become a fully qualified TaeKwonDo Instructor and have been teaching TaeKwonDo with Travis ever since. Its something I love and am passionate about. there are a few children who start off very shy and find it difficult, as did I, and I have worked closely with them and their parents to help them along their TaeKwonDo journey and have seen them blossom.


I currently teach in Petersfield but will teach classes in all areas to cover holidays and if I fancy some extra TaeKwonDo !


I am working towards my 4th DAN and opening my own club hopefully next year with the support from Travis & the other instructors.
