21. Picked up some gnarly injuries along the way…

Knife wound

22. Although my real passion has always been mixed martial arts (Joey is on the bottom)

flying arm bar

22. . In my first ever tournament I broke my foot. (The bone was sticking out through the top of the foot) It required pins and a moon-boot for six weeks.

23. So instead of competition fighting I went the teaching route and became an instructor.

24. I then decided I like knife fighting.

24. And hitting people with sticks.

25. And because I liked that stuff… and my enthusiasm for MMA I got involved with some people who used to teach CQC to the police.

26. Which was quite a lot of fun.

27. These days I mostly play Playstation. And then fall asleep on the couch with the basset hound.

29. I really like Jeeps. Mostly for the way you can basically disassemble the entire thing with only one screwdriver.

30. I used to be very careful about I listened to with the top down.

31. I have my head shaved by a proper barber with a straight razor. It helps me with my trust issues. (its also quite therapeutic)

32. I wake up ridiculously early. Usually at 4am.

33. I used run every day. Usually 5mi. But have recently decided that I actually hate running.

34. So now I take my German for a walk instead. Its nice being the only person awake at that time.

35. I drive around my office on a push scooter.

36. Sometimes I crash spectacularly in front of everyone.

37. I once pushed my scooter from the one side of Singapore… to Sentosa island. It doesn’t look very far on the map…
