Her immerse training continued for over 10 years, whilst volunteering and committing all her time to the club. Her instructors valued her commitment and offered her training to be a Muay Thai Kickboxing instructor.

Muay Thai originates from Thailand and consists of learning how to use kicks, punches, knees and elbows. For this sport, you have to be very well disciplined, and Zee’s level of commitment for 15 years shows she has a passion for the Sport. Zee decided to take her career further in mixed martial arts and she wanted to gain an understanding of Self-Defence. She completed a level 3 Self-Defence & Restraint course through The National Federation of Personal Safety, this gave her a deeper understanding of self-defence techniques and what the law states. She completed her learning online whilst attending a 3-day practical training which she successfully completed and passed. As her passion grew stronger, she decided to set up a community project to teach women self-defence. This project consists of basic skills required to defend yourself in any type of situation and this has proven to be a success.
Adding to her career she decided to take up another mixed martial sport called Street Safe (Krag Maga). She’s trained and developed in this sport for 2 years, In Jan 2020, she will be a fully qualified Krag Maga instructor, aiming to share and spread the knowledge nationwide. This is an immense achievement and now her personal interest/ hobby has turned into a career, which she is very proud of. She has gained a lot of knowledge from this type of sport as it teaches you multiple attacks, knife defence and much more. For the past 8 years she has been working full time in the banking industry which she also enjoys. This shows her level of commitment and passion in Mixed martial arts as she delivers projects during the evening and weekends. Her aim is to make a difference to the community, targeting vulnerable women who have been involved in any form of domestic abuse, and to the general public.
