"Hi Coach, I just wanted to take a moment and message you. I wanted to message you after finishing class 1 of the Garage Gym. I don’t want to get personal, but losing people in my life whether to sickness or violence, the joy isn’t always there, and it takes a lot to get me excited. I feel this is important to preface what I’m gonna say... And since violence has always been in my life, even as a child, I always subconsciously grew frustrated with martial arts, and I never understood why.
After completing class 1, I smiled, I laughed, I wanted to teleport to you and just FUCKING SHAKE YOU!!! I wanted just to look you in the eyes and say, “that’s it, THIS IS FUCKING IT!” I am fulfilled, you are a genius. This is what I have been looking for, and what other people need. This text, my words can not describe what my heart, my soul, and my mind feel. Like I have found what I have been looking for. I always wished there was a SPEAR gym in RI, but this is so much better."
