Overview

Meet Dave Hazard. He is a world class martial artist—a 7th dan black belt in Shotokan Karate—who is as respected in the tough streets, bars, and clubs of the East End of London as he is in the top Karate dojo in Japan. His reputation is legendary. He has faced down many tough challenges as a street fighter but also as a mentor and teacher. As a member of the Great Britain karate team, Dave fought for his country against some of the world's leading martial artists in both formal competition and the highly dangerous and demanding sparring of the dojo, where no rules apply. Born into a harsh environment, Dave Hazard grew into a complex and extraordinary man. The ups and downs of his remarkable life prove he is truly a force to be reckoned with and a living embodiment of the power of the mind as well as the first. This is his humorous, insightful, inspiring, violent, and occasionally tragic story.
