'The story of three of the world's hardest streetfighters.' DAILY SPORT
One night in the early 1970s, three young bouncers worked together at a Liverpool nightclub. Terry O'Neill went on to become the greatest karate expert Britain has ever produced; Gary Spiers was the deadliest streetfighter alive; and Dennis Martin is now the UK's leading expert on close protection and bodyguarding.
This is the story of these three martial arts masters and how they transformed both the practice of personal combat and the security industry. It follows in vivid detail the dangerous, violent path they walked and the many characters they met on the way.
Martin spent his entire adult life involved in frontline security, working on the nightclub doors in Liverpool, protecting VIPs all over the world, then training bodyguards and other security professionals. He is also a widely published writer, with articles appearing in Black Belt, Soldier of Fortune, SWAT and Combat, while his regular column in Fighting Arts International is widely accepted as being the impetus behind reality-based self-protection.
'Dennis Martin is the most credible instructor of real self-defence in the world today.' - Geoff Thompson, author of 'Watch My Back'
