Submit Your Event

One of the most exciting features on the Awakening website 2.0 is the new Global Martial Arts Event Calendar. As far as we’re aware, it’s yet again a ground breaking and ambitious move from Awakening. The idea of the calendar is to list as many martial arts events around the world as is physically possible for our little fingers.

Event Calendar Explained

The Awakening global martial arts event calendar is another great feature we’d like to share with you in a little more detail. As far as we know, there isn’t another calendar like this in the world. We believe we’ve broken new ground again with this feature. While our calendar system itself is still in its infancy, it is the best place on the internet to find out at a glance, about martial arts events happening around the globe.

Community Feedback and Ratings

With the new Awakening website 2.0, we really want to drive forward the community aspect of this build. We feel that involving you – the female fight community – with as much of the website as possible our mission to do good can only grow from here. We refer to the “Female Fight Community” a lot, perhaps we should clarify what we mean by this.

Anderson vs Church

We had worked with both Grace Anderson and Vicky Church before so we were extremely excited for this one.  It was to be a last minute K1 fight at CSFC Challengers 2, in which Vicky standing in and not at her usual fully trained level.  Having an in-depth knowledge of each fighter’s style, and indeed being friends with both really spices things up.

Huxley vs Cunvin

19 May 2013. We travelled to Barry, Wales to a fight night hosted by Eagles Gym. The reason for travelling was to watch the Lauren “The Hatchet” Huxley fight. Her opponent, Natasha Cunvin was unknown to us at the time, but we’d seen Lauren fight before and were so impressed that we wanted to see her fight again. Lauren is a youngster, but shows a lot of promise and focus…

The two inaugural Awakening World Muay Thai Titles took place this past Sunday at Fast & Furious 2 in Penzance, Cornwall, UK.
