Rich of his multi level experiences, today, he shares his expertise, through his workshops and seminars conducted here in Malaysia and aboard, by using not only techniques and principles to prevent and de-escalate violence, but also to react when necessary to violent aggression. In the street there is only one rule: No rules!
