WMMAA Champion Lin Heqin started training in martial arts at a young age, and began her journey with sanda while studying at a martial arts college. Although she retired from the competitive Chinese sanda scene in 2015, she soon discovered she could not live without martial arts.
She switched her focus to mixed martial arts and began training diligently, making her professional debut that same year. Despite suffering a setback in her first bout, Lin would surge back in spectacular fashion, registering 16 wins with just a single loss to earn a place on the ONE Championship roster.
Seeking to improve her growing skills, she moved across the country in 2018 to continue her martial arts journey at Hasheng MMA. Lin remains driven by the desire to show that women can be strong martial artists, and she also aims to prove that the many doubters she has encountered throughout her career were wrong.
