Transformation Tuesday: Jihin Radzuan Becomes A Superhero

Apr 28, 2020

Jihin “Shadow Cat” Radzuan’s distinctive skill set has pushed her to tremendous heights in her mixed martial arts career.

However, the Malaysian atomweight believes that trait alone does not provide her with enough power to overcome every hurdle.

To get past that final barrier, the 21-year-old warrior dresses up as a superhero every time she trains at Ultimate MMA Academy.

She feels like it helps her unlock some hidden superpowers – like the superwoman punch she often throws during her battles in the Circle.

“I love to dress up in a simple costume when I train,” the Johor Bahru native explains.

“My coach, Melvin Yeoh, usually asks me to get these costumes to build up my character, and after years of using it, I do realize it sort of affects my mood whenever I train.

“Obviously, it doesn’t give me real superpowers, but it does help to boost my character and emotion.”

For Transformation Tuesday, take a look at “Shadow Cat” participating in various superhero training sessions and competitions.
