    In my younger days when Id regulaly get in to scrapes I would always throw a spinning kick or head kick straight off. Got me out of a few difficult spots whether it landed or not, pissed hardmen usually lose interest when you go all Bruce Lee on them!

    I was Depressed, bullied, intimidated by life and indoctrinated to believe that this was his lot, on the verge of a breakdown, i decided to fight back. In a bid to confront my fears, i took a job as a bouncer in one of Britain's roughest nightclubs. My life was never to be the same again. Over the next ten years, and after being involved in hundreds of brutal and bloody fights that left two of my friends murdered and many more in prison, previously a bullied 11 stone youth turned into a fearsome fighting machine with an unparalleled reputation as a knockout specialist. Seduced by beautiful women, attacked by maniacs with knives, guns (and a pair of garden shears), chased and locked up by the police and sought after by top establishments to 'clean up' their clubs, i reached the top of my trade and became addicted to violence.

    Then it all changed. After being stabbed, glassed and nearly killed in a gang attack, and almost killing one of my attackers in a savage car park match-fight, i was forced to reassess my relationship with violence. After writing down my experiences in an effort to exorcise his demons, Idiscovered a flair for writing. Within a few short years my work found a cult following all over the world.

    I faced my fears and took mysefg from bedsit to bestseller but very nearly got killed on the way. I made violence my profession working as a dooman at some of Britain's roughest clubs. As the holder of the rank of 6th Dan black belt in Japanese karate, 1st Dan in Judo and equally well qualified in other martial arts i am a Tough man.

    Is that from that guy who did the movie clubbed?

    Also im fairly proud that hand on heart I used my mouth and not my fists in most of the conflicts I came across your mouth is the best weapon in that line of work in my opinion.
