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.

Protect Your Family by Learning How to Fight: Part 1

Following up on my last post on the topic of martial arts and self defense, I thought it would be prudent to discuss some of the core principles I have learned over the years that strangely seem to get overlooked at most martial arts schools.  Today we are going to cover just some basic concepts that are applicable regardless what style you decide to train in, but in the future we will look at some more specific concepts that you will find interesting.

The Discussion of College and Majors With Your Kids

Today I have a short and concise article that sprung to mind while brainstorming article ideas and browsing my Twitter feed and I came up with a very relevant one for you fathers out there: Sending your kids to college.  This can be a pretty overwhelming issue for most men with so many questions that go into it.

What college should your kid go to?

The Triangle of Frame

  1. Frame is fluid and will find its own level when a deficit or a surplus of will is applied to change it. The forces that influence that lack or boost of will is irrelevant – just know that the conditions of an operative framework will shift because of them. -Rollo Tomassi

I write this article as a bit of a field report but more so as a way for me to explain something that can be lost on red pilled men, especially married ones. Frame is something that you must control for yourself, but the frame of your marriage, and who is in control of that frame sets the standard for a healthy or decaying relationship.
