AWAKENING RATING
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

Tecia tells Awakening, “I began Karate at age 5 after my mom took me and my sister in for a class. I immediately feel in love, my sister not so much. I stayed until I was 17 earning my black belt. Then transitioned to Kickboxing when I was 18. After Muay Thai then eventually BJJ to MMA.”
