Hard Target

The Essential street survival guide for frontline staff, community workers, back packers, parents and teenagers

About the author

I have been studying martial arts since the age of thirteen. Karate was the first martial art I learned, I then went on to train in Wing Chun, Judo, Jujitsu and Boxing. I also competed in Kickboxing in my early years. I have always been fascinated by the far Eastern culture and their fighting arts. Never being one to just accept what I was being told by my peers, I wanted to find out how effective the arts were in real situations. So, I went and worked on the doors as a bouncer for 15 years. Over my time working on the doors, I realised much of what I had learned worked in a limited way and to be effective had to be applied in a far more practical way, plus when it came to real violence mindset and mental strength were far more important than any type of physical and technical skills.

My conflict management and people skills were honed in casinos, working for Caesars Entertainment as a security surveillance officer for many years.

I also have been out on patrols in New York’s subways in the Bronx with the legendary Guardian Angels the original vigilante crime busters who help fight crime in the no go areas of the city.

I am a registered physical intervention trainer and fully qualified conflict management trainer. I have worked in the security industry for over fifteen years. I have also trained hundreds of people in conflict management for real life situations drawing directly from my experience working in mental health, door security and surveillance officer for one of the UK’s largest casinos.
