An intimate and unflinching memoir exploring Mia Kang’s journey from self-loathing to self-love Mia Kang is many things: a sought-after model, an immigrant, an eating disorder survivor, and a Muay Thai ï¬?ghter. Her ï¬?rst book, Knockout, is the story of how she eschewed normative body standards and learned to use martial arts to redeï¬?ne her sense of self-worth. In a charming, ï¬?erce, and intimate voice, Kang invites readers into her world. She once lived and died by her weight, but she is now deï¬?ned by her conï¬?dence in being a woman who lives outside the mold of what we’re taught is “feminine.” After dealing with bullying, addiction, body dysmorphia, anxiety, depression, and even suicidal thoughts, Mia acknowledges that she is lucky to still be alive to tell readers what she’s learned: to not let anyone else dictate who you are supposed to be.
