This image may perhaps appear to be of a man who is angry or aggressive. Believe me this is far from the truth. Andrew is a quiet, calm and softly spoken young man who would go out of his way to help anyone.
Apparently as a younger man he was attacked and injured for no reason whatsoever except that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, injured so badly that he was in hospital for quite sometime. At that time he made up his mind never to find himself in that position again and to do that he would learn martial arts. (For his own defense) This he did to a very high standard in several forms of martial arts way beyond the black belt standard we are familiar with.
Andrew would never hurt a fly but it would be a very silly person who would try to hurt him in anyway.
I have seen him go through some of his moves and believe me I would not like to be on the receiving end of those fists.

I learned a long time ago, David that you cannot judge a person by how they look.
This a superbly powerful image of someone who is confident in their abilities.
