The best way to know about a Man’s Character is to go with him for a couple of rounds in the ring. You would know more about him than he himself does. The Writer started learning martial arts to get better at street fights as he invariably found himself indulging in them during his years growing up and unknowingly became a student of the combat arts until he finally settled down and had a life.
Although considered a nuisance in itself and rightly so the fights that he found himself in and the combat anecdotes of the greats made contributions of the highest order in his approach and attitude towards life. The lessons learnt on the streets and in the rings gave a definite direction to his life which otherwise was missing. He in this book has tried to comprehend these virtues for the readers and hopes to make a small contribution in the enrichment of all those who are willing to take a hit or two with a grin on their faces.
