I believe in peace. I learnt to do martial arts when I was young and I wanted to be a bouncer, but after one particular fight I learnt that if you hurt someone you can actually hurt yourself, quoted him as saying.

I had a scuffle with someone and two days later I found out his tooth was still in my hand I thought there was a problem with my bone. I didnt know if Id killed the guy or just knocked him down and I was petrified for a whole month. I read the newspapers every day to find out if Id killed someone, he added.
