Eating Healthy on the Cheap

Today I’m going to discuss a topic in the same vein as one of my recent articles regarding health and nutrition.  This post was inspired through a few different interactions, but the most notable exchange was with a gentleman on Twitter who posted this: Continue reading “Eating Healthy on the Cheap”

Transcending the Red Pill

To preface this article, I would not consider myself a Red Pill guru, though I have been part of the Red Pill community conversing with many knowledgeable men for 3 to 4 years now.  I still have many topics to both learn and master, but during my digital travels I have noticed something that has troubled me.

Throughout many sites and platforms, men gather to discuss issues such as game/frame, fitness, politics, religion, and finances.  This is all well and good, but there always seems to be an underlying cynicism on many of the sites Continue reading “Transcending the Red Pill”

Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cow Boys (or Girls)

A disturbing trend we are seeing in this age of decadence is the increase in obesity rates.  While it is bad enough that grown adults are consuming too much junk food and pairing it with a sedentary lifestyle, they are likewise subjecting their children to the same fate.

Can we honestly say we are surprised by this revelation however?  As the left pushes agendas such as “fat acceptance” and “beautiful at any size” the repercussions are trickling down to our very children. Continue reading “Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cow Boys (or Girls)”

Control Your Emotions – Fear and Rage

“What we feel is a choice.”

-Piyush Shrivastav

Control your emotions.

We hear this phrase tossed around a lot, but rarely do we sit down and ponder its full implications.

What does it mean to control our emotions?

Should men simply wear a poker face at all times?

The answer surprisingly is absolutely not.  Humans are naturally emotive creatures.  It’s a tool to help us process the world around us and to properly respond.  Someone who tells you to control your emotions might mean well, but probably has a limited understanding of the subject.

Protect Your Family by Learning How to Fight: Part 3

We’ve covered some general martial art/self-defense concepts in Part 1 and Part 2 of this series. Now it’s time to dig into some concept specific to certain martial arts.  That being said, these concepts can still be applicable to other styles and self-defense in general.  In fact, some of these principles are even more valuable than those previously discussed.

In addition to the concept, I will also be listing what style I’ve learned these concepts from in case you are still looking for a style to train in.  Without further ado, let’s dig in! Continue reading “Protect Your Family by Learning How to Fight: Part 3”

Protect Your Family by Learning How to Fight: Part 2

This is a follow-up post to an earlier article discussing some basic principles that are applicable across all martial arts and self-defense in general.  This was originally supposed to be a one-and-done article, but as I began to write, more and more principles and concepts began coming to mind – one of the side effects of being in martial arts for nearly two decades.  A blessing and a curse as there’s tons of knowledge stored up in my noggin, but accessing it comes in ebbs and flows.
