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
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

Yolanda tells Awakening, “I started Boxercise for fitness, training once a week in 2010. After 2 years I stopped taking dance classes at the studio and replaced it with MMA, BJJ and Kickboxing 3 nights a week. A torn shoulder led me to 7 months off training and when I returned, I found myself at a wonderful Muay Thai Gym, where I became addicted. At this point I still had NO intention of becoming a fighter. 5 months of being under the guidance of Andrew Parnham, I decided I wanted to fight. I took on my first fight on 11th of October 2013. An ankle injury on the sports field had me out of training for 7 months after my second fight, but I’m back and stronger than before, I aspire to inspire before I expire!”
