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.

The arena was dark and misted by a smoke machine, and was reminiscent of the kind of Muay Thai event you might see in Thai movie. There were twenty-three fights in total, seven of which were female.

Women Fight Back

Women Fight Back

The Women Fight Back event was hosted by Colosseum Sports (CSMMA) in Aldershot, UK on 25th August 2012. The show itself was in aid of Victim Support for Women, raising funds to support victims of  abusive crimes. The turn out for the event was not that high considering it was a charity event, we feel the community could have made a better effort to support it.
