Martial arts

She began training in Shotokan karate in 1980, before switching to taekwondo in 1984. Besides the 1988 Summer Olympics, she won gold medals at the 1988 U.S. Olympic Team trials and finals, as well as in 21 national divisional tournaments from 1985 to 1987.

Since 1989, she has also practiced many other styles for the films, including aikido, boxing, capoeira, jiu jitsu, kung fu and wrestling. In 2007, Hee was given the "Female Competitor of the Year Award" award and inducted into the Hall of Fame of the United States Taekwondo Grandmasters Society.
Hee has performed stunts in dozens of films and TV series since 1993, including Batman Forever, Charlie's Angels, Gangs of New York, Independence Day, Lethal Weapon 4, Mortal Kombat, Spider-Man 2, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and The Avengers, and was a double for Cameron Diaz, Daryl Hannah, Geena Davis, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Garner, Nicole Kidman, Renee Russo, Sandra Bullock and Uma Thurman, among others.
