Get Out of my House!!

For most of us, summer is basically here already.  While the “unoffical” start is Memorial Day, the nice weather makes me want to get outside and do things.  I want to be out in the sun, with the family, enjoying the day and each others company.  Yet, as simple as this may seem, I’m seeing a disturbing trend these days with families, and especially children.  There seems to be a lack in the desire to spend time together outside.  Today I’ll go over why this is a problem, and what you can do to maximize your summer.

Balancing the Light and Dark

A recent email from Ivan Throne got me thinking about how men must balance our personalities in order to be a complete man.  If you are not signed up for Ivan’s email newsletters, you’re missing out, but I digress.

If memory serves, he was speaking about his training in Ninjutsu and how his instructor was teaching him about keeping one foot in the light and the other in the dark.

But what does this mean?

How does this apply to our everyday lives? Continue reading “Balancing the Light and Dark”

Why We Need Great Men

Can modern communities do without great men? Can they dispense with hero-worship? Can they provide a larger wisdom, a nobler sentiment, a more vigorous action, by collective processes, than were ever got from the Titans? Can nations remain healthy, can all nations draw together, in a world whose brightest stars are film stars and whose gods are sitting in the gallery? . . . There is a sense of vacancy and of fatuity, of incompleteness. We miss our giants. We are sorry that their age is past. . . .We mourn the towering grandeur which surrounded and cheered our long painful ascent. Ah! If we could only find some new enormous berg rising towards the heavens as high above our plateau as those old mountains down below rose above the plains and marshes!

The 3 Rules of Cobra Kai

We’re going to have a little fun today while also discussing some important life principles from an unlikely source, the Cobra Kai series on YouTube Red.  Now admittedly, I have not seen the entire series yet, only the first few episodes that they have up for free.  From what I’ve watched, however, it is definitely a series that I intend on finishing.  Let’s go over a brief recap of the first few episodes before getting to Cobra Kai’s 3 rules for their dojo and why they are so relevant for every man out there.
