To see the full detailed view of the votes visit the Awakening WMMA 2013 Awards page.

These awards were nominated and voted by the community. We believe this is an important and different way to attract new supporters of the WMMA community. Community nominations also bring awareness to some people that might not be widely known, but deserve the recognition. After consideration of some comments we received we will be making a few changes to next year’s nomination process to improve it. This was the first year of the awards and we believe it was a success. Each of the winners, and nominees were well deserved. There will have been a few names that were not included due to not being nominated by anyone. With the success of this year’s awards, we hope more people will be aware of the nomination process next year.

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.
