AWAKENING RATING
Awakening Rating
1558
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

AWAKENING OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION AWARD

Julie has fittingly been dubbed the “The Queen of Muay Thai”, Julie remained humble throughout her career – not only giving female fighters a great name – but Muay Thai in general.

Julie tells Awakening, “I started Muay Thai at the age of 23 after giving birth to my twin daughters, to work on a little weight loss. I never expected to fight when I started training let alone become 14 x World Champion. I fell in love with the sport and the competitive side, challenging myself to get better. I loved learning new knowledge to improve my game and putting it into practice. Muay Thai has been such a huge part of my life and has giving me so much self confidence from originally being such a shy young girl. Strive towards your goals and beyond, who knows what you can achieve until you put the work in.”
