Samet trains at my Muay Thai gym. I was surprised when I saw this: I didn't realize he was such a big deal in the Turkish Muay Thai world. I could see that obviously he wasn't someone you'd want kicking you in the head, but he's very modest about it. He's a really nice guy. If he sees me doing something wrong (and most of what I do is wrong), he'll come over and show me what I should be doing, which I appreciate a lot. I don't want to embarrass anyone there by naming them if they're shy, but there are a lot of nice guys there who have tried to help me learn. I'm grateful to them. Payol, you wouldn't be embarrassed to be thanked in public, would you? Hocam?
