Jeeja Yanin Vismitananda is a Thai martial artist who made her film debut in the 2008 film “Chocolate” as the character Zen, an autistic martial arts savant. The following year, she also starred in another Thai martial arts movie, “Raging Phoenix”, where she demonstrates a fictional martial art called Meraiyuth which combines Muay Thai and break dancing. In 2013 she would appear in “Tom-Yum-Goong 2” alongside Tony Jaa as well as in “Never Back Down: No Surrender” with Michael Jai White. With her 3rd dan black belt in Taekwondo, Muay Thai skills, and amazing stunt work, she is one of the most talented and entertaining female martial artists of recent memory.
