4th Dan Shorai Black Belt
7 x WKC World Sport Karate & Kickboxing Champion
Owner of X Martial Arts Schools, Ossett
Jay started her martial arts journey at the tender age of 9 years old, encouraged by her friend who already trained and her mum who wanted her to develop her fitness and lose her puppy fat.
Through hard work and determination Jay achieved her childhood dream of becoming a World Martial Arts Champion in 2015, since then achieving this six further times.
Martial arts is a full family affair for Jay, her husband Marcus trains and is well on his journey to black belt. Her daughter also trains in the 6-11 year old programme and has begun her journey to become world champion after winning her section at the 2020 XMA Championships.
‘Throughout my martial arts journey I have reached the pinnacle of my sport, I have had the privilege of travelling all over the world to compete at these fantastic events, making lots of great life long friends along the way.
My aim is to help people of all ages and background achieve their own personal goals whatever they are’
