Thanks to Jaana for helping us out with info for the Jaana Hein Awakening Profile.
Jaana is an amateur Muay Thai fighter from Marburg, Germany - although she has been living in Toronto, Canada since 2011. She fights under Kru Darwin Miranda, Kru Peter Blythe and Peter Montrait out of Krudar Muay Thai. Her Muay Thai and Kickboxing record currently stands at a respectable 12-4-0, and two of those wins have been via 2nd round TKO! She has won numerous titles, including WKA/WTKA Amateur World Champion in both Muay Thai and Kickboxing, and also various North American Championship titles.
We asked her how she started in martial arts and she replied...
"I started Muay Thai in Germany in 2010, when I was 29 years old. I was about to travel the world, and Thailand was one of my destinations. I got to train in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan. I finally found my Muay Thai home in Toronto."
