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 wants to start training in Muay Thai.
