South Korean mixed martial artist “Captain Marvel” Nam Hee Kim hails from Daegu in South Korea. When she was 18 years old, she was inspired by ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee to begin training in kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the hopes of becoming a World Champion like her idol one day.
Kim trains out of Ssen Gym in Daegu alongside Korean featherweight champion Jung Young Lee. She made her professional mixed martial arts debut in a South Korean regional promotion with a win over Soo Yeon Hong, and she was tapped to make her ONE Championship debut soon after. Kim is determined to make the most of this golden opportunity after getting the chance to pursue her dreams and compete on the global stage at just 21 years old.
