The Savage Gentleman strikes again - Kym

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

-Marcel Proust


It's always a sad day when someone you call a friend leaves your life to go on to better and bigger things. It's like you have completed a jigsaw puzzle, then one piece of that puzzle disappears and you wonder if that picture will be complete again. I'm talking about the one and only Kym, an instructor at Gemina Mixed martial arts where I currently train and call a second home. I was honestly shook when she told me she and her family were packing up and moving to Scotland. Although I am happy for her and her family the gym won't be the same without her. Now I'll be honest at the beginning, Kym annoyed me, she was just so nice and was always rightly telling me off for my antics. For someone as hard-headed as myself her advice was hard to hear, but then I realised the place it was coming from and it all made sense. You see Kym is one of those wonderful human beings that wants to make the world a better place, so unselfish with her intention it was something I was unfamiliar with. She wasn't telling me off because she thought she was better than anyone, but because I summarise that she thought I could be better. She is the true example of a martial artist, always asking questions, listening inventively and strives for constant gradual improvement. These are virtues that we could all place a better focus on. I can honestly say that meeting Kym has made me a better person and I'm saddened that I won't be able to learn any more lessons from her. It's crazy, she probably thought she was learning the most from my martial arts lesson but I was learning so much more from her on how to be a better human. I think I speak for everyone at Gemina Mixed martial arts that we will miss you, and wish you luck and the best fortunes on your upcoming chapter of life. I'll end this blog with this message, don't be a dick but be more like Kym, you can put that on a t-shirt (sorry for the cussing Kym but I had to make a statement). peace out players.
