Spotlight: Tecia Torres

Tecia Torres Awakening Spotlight

Our 6th Awakening Spotlight brings you a fighter that certainly lives up to her name. Tecia ‘Tiny Tornado’ Torres is a fiery strawweight, competing in MMA, Kickboxing and Muay Thai. This humble athlete fights out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and almost certainly doesn’t realize how inspirational she is.

Awakening Website 2.0 is coming!

Awakening Fighters Article

We want to apologize for what must appear as an overall lack of activity on our website over the last three months. There is however a very good reason, behind the scenes we are building a highly improved website. When we initially launched the first website (what we are now lovingly calling Awakening Website 1.0) we took an interest in watching how our supporters used the website.

Lauren Huxley - The Hatchet

We recently travelled to Swansea, Wales to do a fun photo shoot with the young 16 year old up-and-coming Muay Thai fighter Lauren ‘The Hatchet’ Huxley. An exciting fighter that we lovingly named ‘The Hatchet’ (see earlier article), Lauren and her family happily took the name and ran with it.

Statistics: January 2013

Awakening Fighters Article

As February 1st sees in a new month for the Awakening website, our first month is completed. Due to the response we’ve had, we thought it was only right that we share with you our progress and experiences. The ultimate goal of Awakening is to help raise the global social acceptance of female martial artists, and give the athletes an online home where they feel acknowledged for their hard work.

Link issues corrected

Awakening Fighters Article

We thought we needed to highlight a mini issue that a tiny percentage of you will have come across in the Global Female Martial Artists Register. There are a handful of broken links due to our own error of inputting them incorrectly. Fortunately each time someone clicks on a broken link it is flagged to us immediately. As soon as we see the flag we correct the link.

Awakening Rating System Explained

Awakening Fighters Article

Essentially, an athletes rating directly relates to what they have achieved during their time practicing martial arts. So after a long career, this system allows other to see just how inspirational an athlete is. The most important thing to understand about our rating system is that we can only calculate based on the information we have on each profile.
