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

UNDERSTANDING THE 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

Christina tells Awakening,“I began training in early 2012 after attending a local event in which both my future debut opponent and future trainer fought on. The energy of MMA was something that appealed to me and I instantly became hooked with the sport. The very next week I found a local Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy and out of sheer boredom in my life, and really, because a part of me wanted to prove my un-supportive family and friends wrong, I signed up to classes and haven’t looked back since. All throughout my school years I was bullied, and that brought on confidence and anxiety issues. Thanks to MMA, however, I have now begun to outgrow them!”
