Angela Lee:  My name is Angela Lee and I’m 18 years old. I am a half Singaporean, half Korean girl born in Canada and raised in Hawaii. I grew up in my parents martial arts schools in Canada and Hawaii. I was always on the mats, watching the techniques, and eager to learn all that I could. I first began training at 3 years old, competing at 6 years old and that is when I began showing promise in martial arts. I excelled in all styles of martial arts competition and really enjoyed competing. Growing up in a martial arts family has provided me with an abundance of support that keeps me driven and motivated in my fighting career. 11407113_858889437530447_8980711879467555270_n

 

ASIANLICIOUS:   Have you ever used your skills in a real fight away from the ring?

 

Angela Lee:  No, I’ve never been in any sort of fight outside of the ring. I am not the type of person who goes around picking fights with people. I only use martial arts in the cage, or for self defense. 11220880_858889017530489_4155922790230082431_n - Copy
