Ross Hemsworth Interviews Martial Arts Expert Tim Larkin on Nailing It!

By Ross (The Hammer) Hemsworth

US Martial Arts Instructor Barred from Entering the UK  (Part 1)

Tim Larkin is a martial arts expert, who they say, can teach you how to kill a man in four moves. He trained to be a Navy Seal in the USA and uses martial arts techniques aimed purely at teaching people how defend themselves in times of attack. In these dangerous times where so many muggers, burglars and attackers are armed with knives and guns, shouldn`t the public have the right to learn how to defend themselves, their property and their loved ones?

He has visited the UK a number of times before without a problem, yet on this occasion he was stopped at the airport in Las Vegas and told that Home Secretary Theresa May had refused him entry into Britain. A spokesman for the Home Office said ""the Home Secretary will seek to exclude an individual if she considers that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good."

In this week`s show, we talk to Tim Larkin about his techniques, his views on the Home Secretary`s decision and what he aims to do next. We also chat to former MP and Human Rights campaigner Lembit Opik who is championing Mr Larkin`s case which is now heading to judicial review.
