Celebrating AKC’s First Birthday

From Jak

Yes ladies and gentlemen, today marks A King’s Castle’s first full year up and running on the interwebs and what a year it has been!

I’m going to be honest with you.  When J. Nyx and I first thought up the idea of creating A King’s Castle, I knew we were onto something big, but I had no idea that we would explode the way we did in just one year! Continue reading “Celebrating AKC’s First Birthday”

6 Steps To Increase Your Fat Loss Skills

 

I’ve spoken to a lot of guys recently, particularly “older guys”, and the primary concern amongst them apart from family issues, seems to be fitness related. The number one problem within fitness appears to be body fat. Obviously, excessive levels of body fat are a real issue, both from a health standpoint and a fitness standpoint. We all want to look good, right? We all want to live long lives full of energy and vitality, don’t we? It’s safe to say that it’s time to lose the blubber.

Chores, Allowance and How To Get Your Kids Involved At Home

Today it seems that kids aren’t expected to do jack shit outside of school work, and half the time most parents don’t even care about that.   All I ever see is kids sitting around with their faces buried in devices, their parents mindless zombies who do the same, and these kids are just expected to exist and flat out demand new things from their parents without working for it.  Today I’ll share how things work in my house and some tips for any of you dads who may need to lay down the law at home Continue reading “Chores, Allowance and How To Get Your Kids Involved At Home”

The 5 Tenets of Taekwondo

The 5 tenets of Taekwondo are basic attributes expected out of every student that decides to take part in a class, but I would argue they are valuable for everyone to work on improving, not just martial artists.

For just 5 basic tenets, there seems to be a lot of confusion and controversy around them and their meaning.  It’s my goal to help clear some of this up as well as provide my take on them.  If these types of articles are something our readers are interested in, I will go on to cover the tenets/principles of other martial arts in the future.  Let’s begin.

Applying the 80/20 Rule To Life

Recently I’ve been listening to Jay Ferruggia’s Renegade Radio podcast.  Jay is a bodybuilder and trainer in NYC who talks quite a bit about the 80/20 Rule and how it applies to life in general.  Today I’ll explain what it 8s and how we can view every aspect of our lives this way.

Homeschooling 101

Since we were married, my wife and I were on the same page as far as home schooling our kids. As the public schools  become more corrupt, the home schooling alternative has become increasingly more popular. Since 1999, there has been a 75% increase to 2.04 million, or 4% of all k-12 students. As parents who home schools their children, we hope to offer some insight into why we do it, what are some of the costs and benefits, and what we do. Continue reading “Homeschooling 101”

Are You a Good Man or Good at Being a Man?

I recently read through a conversation some men were having on Twitter about fatherhood and masculinity in general when the topic of being a good man versus being good at being a man came up.  I forget who all was involved in the conversation so I apologize for not crediting the men who provided me with this idea.

This comparison highlights an underlying issue I see within the Red Pill community and is rarely addressed.

Look through any Red Pill site and you will find dozens, if not hundreds of articles centered around self-improvement, fitness, money, game, style, but rarely anything deeper.

Why is that? Continue reading “Are You a Good Man or Good at Being a Man?”

Destruction of Doubt

We all hit that point when doing something where doubt begins to kick in.  Whether you’re trying to get that next rep at the gym, trying to get something done at work, or when mid-project on something of leisure, there can be that time when everything is telling you to just give up, take the easy path, and do something easy, or worse, never start at all.  Recently I discovered that this voice inside you is typically wrong, and you’re capable of much more than you think.  Today I’ll go over some scenarios where just giving it that extra 1% more effort can pay off.   Continue reading “Destruction of Doubt”
