This mentor-student meme base originally belongs to KeybladeMagicDan. This is dedicated to those who fancy not only fancy Ayame’s and Alex’s fabulously fearless and fantastically fierce brand of crossover sisterhood but also the idea of Ayame giving Alex a relentlessly tough yet excitingly thrilling training session that she will never forget in Kyuk Too Ki mixed with Dutch Kickboxing, American Kickboxing, Japanese Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Hapkido, and Taekwondo. Sit back, relax, and revel in Ayame’s extremely intense and incredibly taxing training session that she has in store for her best friend for life/best sister from another mister Alex.
It is a proven fact that Ayame’s training methods in Korean Kickboxing or Kyuk Too Ki, Dutch Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Japanese Kickboxing, Hapkido, and Taekwondo can range from overwhelmingly challenging to ruthlessly insane in terms of physical challenges that need to be accomplished. Every punch, kick, elbow strike, and knee strike that Ayame has in store has been sharpened like the finest of steel by her grandfather, surrogate father, and male mentors namely The Wolf Elder, Broly, and the wolf Yokai warriors of the North, South, East, and West, thus making her a Muay Thai/Kickboxing prodigy starting at only 5 years old. Where moves are concerned, Ayame has all the uppercuts, jabs, cross punches, hooks, overhand punches, Superman punches, hammer fists, roundhouse kicks, axe kicks, elbow strikes, knee strikes, shin kicks, spinning back fists, and liver punches in the world to incapacitate her opponents. All of her punches, kicks, elbow strikes, and knee strikes can knock Ulrich Wernerstein and his bodybuilder goons down like trees cut down by lumberjacks. Ayame always means serious business.
Ayame going fast and loose with all her punches, elbow strikes, knee strikes, and kicks in Kyuk Too Ki, Dutch Kickboxing, Muay Chaiya, Muay Korat, Muay Lopburi, Muay Thasao, Taekwondo, and Hapkido has seen her acquire the monikers of The Furious Tiger Queen, The Red Eagle of the Kukkiwon, and The Relentless Prizefighting Champion because of how brutally bone-crushing and scarily skeleton-smashing her strikes are against more skilled and more humungous opponents. Legend has it that a horde of seven Muay Thai fighters more muscular and bigger than she attempted to knock her down and make her submit. However, Ayame bounced back up with a vengeance to deliver the seven Muay Thai fighters a series of overhand punches, uppercuts, jabs, hooks, elbow strikes, and knee strikes and culminated them with her signature axe kick to their heads. Male kickboxers and male Nak Muays attempt to woo her, but she always retorts by stating that nobody can possess her because she has always been faithful to her husband Inuyasha since childhood. Grit and determination are what propel Ayame’s signature attacks.
As a fitness aficionado and an all-time full-contact sports fan, Alex cannot help but admire Ayame’s rapid quickness, visceral fists of fury, lightning-fast feet, and unbreakable limbs of steel as a Kyuk Too Ki prizefighter, which have also rightfully earned her reputation for being one of K1’s most exciting kickboxers with a Muay Thai background bolstered by her dedicated determination, fabulous fierceness, energetic excellence, and lethal limbering. This was evident one snowy December 2004 in the Austrian Alps, when Alex kept her eyes glued to Ayame’s lightning-fast and skeleton-eviscerating punches, kicks, and strikes against Ulrich Wernerstein and his bodybuilder goons. Like the excited schoolgirl that she was, Alex excitedly congratulated Ayame for a job outstandingly done, thanks to landing some serious blows on Ulrich and his goons. Alex even asked Ayame if she can teach her the moves that she did to give Ulrich and his goons the beating they deserved. Ayame was more than happy to invite Alex to train with her on one condition. She had to be committed to using the moves she taught her for self-defense and self-respect.
Alex knows that she is about to be thrown into the deep end when Ayame invites her to her Kyuk Too Ki training center at home. Her training center is surrounded by paintings and murals of tigers, lions, leopards, jaguars, dragons, alligators, and serpents that perfectly encapsulate what Ayame’s attacks are defined by. They are effective in their brute strength and quick reflexes against the strongest of opponents. Alex is totally excited to start sparring with Ayame and cannot wait to get her fists and feet warmed up. However, like the good instructor that Ayame is, she encourages Alex to start every routine with a series of warmups to make sure that their limbs are in mint condition to punch, kick, strike, and do takedowns. Their lengthy warmup routine consists of 100-meter dashes around the training center, splits, knuckle pushups, calisthenics, chin-ups, shadowboxing sessions, punching and kicking the huge punching bag, and working on their kicks on the kicking pads. Alex already knows what she is about to get herself into because the warmups are just the beginning of an intense sparring session about to occur.
Alex’s legs may feel like jelly after that super intense warmup session, but Ayame reminds her that this is only the beginning, as the real sparring is about to come underway. Ayame is donning her all-red tank top, short shorts, hand wraps, and foot wraps made out of the Robe of the Fire Rat complete with red boxing gloves made of demon boar hide. Meanwhile, Alex is donning her all-chartreuse green tank top, short shorts, hand wraps, and foot wraps complete with chartreuse green boxing gloves. To see if both ladies are prepared to take each other on, Ayame proposes to Alex that they practice their punches, kicks, elbow strikes, and knee strikes on the huge punching bags in the fastest time possible. Every punch, kick, and strike Ayame and Alex make to the punching bags has seen them strengthening on full-contact impact, quick reaction time, fast footwork, and agile limbering buttressed by focus and determination. All that adrenaline pumping created by those punches, kicks, and strikes on the punching bags is what gives both Ayame and Alex the motivation to stay focused in their upcoming fight.
To check if Alex is prepared to take on Ayame’s visceral blows, she asks her to tighten her entire body by clenching her fists and keeping her feet firmly on the ground. Alex is ready to take on the punches and the kicks that Ayame has to offer and stands as tall as a sequoia tree. Ayame then unleashes a series of uppercuts, jabs, hooks, and cross punches to her stomach, ribs, and flanks; a barrage of overhand punches and haymaker punches to her head, and a shower of leg kicks, roundhouse kicks, shin kicks, and calf kicks. In addition to those punches and kicks, Ayame also delivers Alex a series of elbow slashes, elbow strikes, knee bombs, and knee strikes in the clinch for good measure. The effects of Ayame’s punches, kicks, elbow strikes, shin kicks, and knee strikes on Alex’s insides and limbs resound in eviscerating pain and throbbing rawness. Nevertheless, Alex knows full well that she has faced her fair share of bigger opponents and fighters more skilled than her and is still willing to turn pain into her best friend, not her worst enemy. Despite the pain, Alex soldiers on to further prove her worth to Ayame.
Alex’s strong will has been put to the test and is more than prepared to retaliate with her signature moves. Ayame is prepared to take in Alex’s punches, as she also makes herself sturdy and firm like a tall sequoia tree. Alex then charges Ayame with a series of jabs, hooks, uppercuts, and cross punches to her stomach, flanks, and ribs; a stampeding army of haymakers, overhand punches, and jabs to her face, chin, head, and forehead; and a barrage of leg kicks, shin kicks, knee strikes, and elbow strikes. She indubitably masters those punches, kicks, elbows, and knee strikes like a true professional. Then come the counterattacks which Alex must master with all her might. When Ayame throws a haymaker, Alex counters Ayame’s haymaker with an uppercut and jab combo to her chin and nose. When Alex throws a roundhouse kick, Ayame roundhouse kicks Alex back and delivers a hook to her abdominal area. Given Alex’s quick responses to Ayame’s attacks, she does learn fast and can roll with every punch, kick, and strike her opponents have in store for her. Now, Ayame knows that Alex is ready to spar with all her might.
The intense sparring commences. Ayame and Alex are still in their kickboxing attire ready to unleash a barrage of blinding blows and shattering strikes to each other’s bodies. There is no holding back for either of them because their fists, feet, shins, elbows, and knees are well-oiled to the nines in terms of delivering painful blows. Ayame delivers a series of uppercuts, jabs, hooks, cross punches, overhand punches, haymaker punches, and rabbit punches to Alex. Learning from the excruciating pain that she experienced earlier, Alex also retorts with a barrage of uppercuts, jabs, hooks, cross punches, overhand punches, haymaker punches, and rabbit punches to Ayame while also combining them with roundhouse kicks and shin kicks. Ayame swiftly retaliates with an overhand punch to Alex’s face, an axe kick to her head, and a flurry of uppercuts to her stomach. Alex does not want to retreat and hide because she is not yet through with Ayame. Thus, Alex strikes back with cross punches, straight punches, a spinning back kick, clinching knee strikes, and a spinning elbow strike. Both ladies are never going to back down.
Ayame and Alex, both bloodied and bruised from each other’s brutal blows, resume position to finish their epic sparring match once and for all. Ayame asks Alex if she is up for one more full round of blows. Alex responds with a resounding yes. Ayame lets out a huge, guttural battle cry that almost makes the walls shatter. Alex also lets out an ear-piercing, decibel-shattering battle cry that also makes the walls shatter. Both women charge at each other like tigers about to tear each other limb from limb. Ayame delivers a meteor shower of uppercuts, jabs, hooks, and overhand punches that make Alex wince in pain. However, Alex does not want to fall down in shame, as she also gives Ayame a huge barrage of uppercuts, roundhouse kicks, front kicks, spinning back kicks, elbow strikes, knee strikes, and shin kicks that almost make her fall down. Despite all the bruises, the blood foaming down from their mouths, and all the black eyes that they have acquired, both Ayame and Alex have one last blow prepared for each other. They both launch a skull-shattering axe kick to each other’s heads, falling to the ground unconscious.
After a while, both Ayame and Alex regain consciousness, considering all the bruises, gashes, black eyes, and wounds they have given each other. Ayame commends Alex for rising to the challenge in terms of not letting the pain get the best of her as well as delivering one sensational fight. Alex even thanks Ayame for physically challenging her and for giving her the super tough workout her body needs as a spy, an athlete, and a martial artist. All bodily damage aside, both Ayame and Alex still have enough energy to give each other a nice, warm, and endearing hug with smiles on their faces. Both of them even joke how Inuyasha and Raymond would have been turned on by Ayame and Alex beating the ever-loving stuffing out of each other and would have cheered them on. Alex remarks that she wants to keep training with Ayame because it would help her be more physically conditioned in her missions with her friends and prove to herself that she can accomplish more than what is possible. Ayame is more than happy to do all that for Alex. Therefore, Ayame and Alex are always happy to build each other up in Kyuk Too Ki.
After Alex’s extreme training with Ayame, she now knows what it is like to spar in Kyuk Too Ki mixed with Dutch Kickboxing, American Kickboxing, Japanese Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Hapkido, and Taekwondo. The best takeaway Alex can ever acquire from her experience with Ayame is that she has to be quick, disciplined, determined, and fierce enough to roll with every punch, kick, and strike handed to her. She can never afford to falter but use those attacks to propel her further. It takes more than just super strength to knock anybody like Alex down, but she also needs quick reflexes, speed, balance, and accurate timing to ensure that she has a great victory even against bigger opponents. Ayame’s eviscerating lesson on pain has also given Alex the impetus she needs to keep on bettering herself and not allow herself to easily falter. If she has young people who want to pursue professional espionage, she would love to use what she has learned from Ayame to show her students that it takes determination and perspiration to make it to the top. Alex has Ayame to thank for giving her that push.
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and train hard in Kyuk Too Ki as Ayame and Alex have, everybody.
