About Rew Mitchell

President and founder of Awakening. Rew does whatever possible to support female martial artists in gaining recognition. An avid fan of Martial Arts, with a training history that began at an early age in Judo. Practicing this art was fairly short lived and only lasted two years due to family financial difficulties. It wasn't until age fifteen when training restarted with Kickboxing, and shortly after Kung-Fu. Rew finally settled on Wu Shu Kwan (Chinese Boxing), and for a couple of years trained between four and eight hours a day and took part in several displays, but only competed in a couple of exhibition fights. If time ever becomes available again, Rew longs to start training in Muay Thai.

Awakening Rating

The Awakening rating is essentially letting you know how inspirational an athlete is. The idea is to highlight the athletes careers so their achievements are not forgotten. Unfortunately we can only calculate based on the information we have in our database. When we uncover, or are supplied with new information the score will be recalculated.

The rating system is very complex and allows for all the nuances within the multiple disciplines. Some disciplines don’t have grading systems, others don;t have a W-L-D record. These kinds of differences have been accounted for. The most essential thing is the overall contribution to the female martial arts scene.

Awakening rating system explained

Jorina tells Awakening,“I start training when I was 7 and my coach asked me why will you start training. My answer was “I want be Dutch youth champion!” When I was 12 I fought my first fights and I won the Dutch youth title. After that, at 15 I had to fight the adults. Normally that is when you are 16 but I had no opponents anymore in youth class. So my coach asked me what’s next? “I will be Dutch adult champion” And I did it! Later when I was 16-17 years old I won European and World Championship. I always say if you will be the best you need to beat the best!”
