Published work: Taming the Tiger, Revised Edition
Tony Anthony knew no fear. Three-times World Kung Fu Champion, he was self-assured, powerful and at the pinnacle of his art. An extraordinary career awaited him. Working in the higher echelons of close protection security, he travelled the globe, guarding some of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful and influential people.

With fascinating insight into China’s martial arts and the knife-edge adrenaline highs of the bodyguard lifestyle, it documents the personal tragedy that turned a ‘disciple of enlightenment’ into a bloodthirsty violent man.
