The life of a class traitor and peripatetic scouser.
Someone is growing, better watch out Thud ,that seat outside by the vegetable plot could become your work desk, looks as if school suits her :-) .
I like the way the socks co-ordinate with the carpet.
This brings tears to my eyes :)...you've produced a whole new generation that will enjoy The Ramones anew. God bless you big brother...and long live The Ramones!
Roll over Gaga.
...Roll over Hendrix too, MTG.
Thud - Do you know of a Coventry chap who was a bouncer ? Name of Geoff Thompson ?Hard as nails - big in Martial Arts - done very well for himself in books and seminars.A bit unhinged really.
Kev...I'd heard of him through a guy I worked with called Terry O'neil, another doorman/martial artist who went on to act in bits and bobs.
Ah. Terry O'Neil. Yes. Read much about him. I came at it all from the other end really. Amateur boxing, Police - public order squad ... karate, Ju Jitsu and then Krav Maga. I learned a lot from Thompson's teaching in realism (which is all I was really interested in.)I sought out experienced practitioners experienced in street and door work and learned as much as I could from them in very rough training. Ironically I've never had any fights since I started martial training ten years ago... except fisticuffs with the odd third dan !By. There are a lot of wankers in the Martial Arts sphere. I would hate to work a door though; especially with CCTV and no powers of arrest.
Kev.... a majority of doormen where tossers too but the arrival of big drug money destroyed pretty much doormen just doing a job. The arrival of drugs and guns meant after hour activities became more prevalent just to keep going, I spent more time tracking down individuals after work than I did working but lessons needed to be dealt. As a kid I'd always liked fighting and so getting paid ( well as a boss at places like the Hacienda) was a revelation, we don't get to test ourselves much in the modern world do we?
I hated fighting, Thud. But having a face that did not fit meant that I had to do it. I ended up getting quite good at it though I wouldn't say I'd cut it with real toughs. My system is to go for an improvised weapon (if I think I'm up against it.)I nearly always carry a kubotan, maglite or tactical pen. I'm trained in knife fighting (real techniques) and have a Bowie at the ready behind my bedstead. She has a pepper spray canister and air horn her side !
I must remember not to bunk on your train!
Can she do a PETE TOWNSHEND windmill ,yet, or does she smash 'em up?
