Chinese Mixed Martial Arts Champion Wu Chiao Chen had a tough upbringing, living with her grandparents after her parents divorced and enduring repeated bullying at school. In response, she threw herself into her hobbies, especially comics, cartoons, and music. Her isolation and depression led to overeating, so she joined a gym to lose weight.
Chen’s dedication in the gym caught the eye of head coach Kemp Cheng, who gifted her a pair of gloves and suggested she try her hand at martial arts. She approached training and competing with a newfound passion, and she soon put together an 18-2 record en route to national championships in kickboxing and sanda.
Spurred by her success, she soon added BJJ and wrestling to her training for a career in mixed martial arts, winning a gold medal at the Asian Jiu-Jitsu Championships and compiling a perfect 8-0 record as an amateur mixed martial arts champion. A well-rounded athlete with great potential as a professional, she is determined to seize the golden opportunity of competing on the global stage of ONE Championship.
