Married Monk Mode

“If you will live like no one else, later you can live like no one else.”

-Dave Ramsey

Many of you in the Red-Pill community are probably familiar with the term Monk Mode, withdrawing from most social interactions and recreational pastimes in order to focus on completing a specific goal.  Many men have utilized this method in order to skyrocket their productivity for short bursts of time, typically anywhere from a week to a month at a time.

How to Choose the Best Martial Art for You

As a husband and father, one of your primary duties is the protection of your wife and kids.  Taking care of your body is a good start, but ultimately you should consider learning some form of self-defense.  If you’re with me so far, the next question invariably becomes “Which martial art should I train in?”  If you have ever been on a forum discussing martial arts, you know by now this is not an easy question to answer as everyone has a passionate opinion on the subject.

In this post, I’ll give you a little bit about my martial arts background, some pro’s and con’s on the different styles I’ve studied, and give you a few suggestions to help you determine where you should begin your journey into the arts.

The Nine Noble Virtues of Fatherhood: Part 1

I feel that all men need something higher than themselves to believe in.  Religion works for some guys and even though I am not part of any religion, I understand its usefulness and why it’s needed in the world. I have found that there is a modern group of people who have tried to revive pagan Norse mythology and religion in the form of Odinism.  While I do not consider myself an Odinist, I have found that their Nine Noble Values can be revamped for any guy, and specifically a red pilled father.

Anti-Dad Bod: Introduction

I am approaching 30 this year and even at my age I see many husbands and fathers that are fat, weak and aged well beyond their years.  Here at A Kings Castle, we don’t want to ever fall into that group.  A goal I’ve set to reach before my 30th birthday is to put on muscle, then get back down to ~15% body fat.  I’ll map my journey here and keep you guys updated on my progress, but as an introductory post to my first series here, let’s go over why we take the anti-dad bod stance.

The Voice of Reason

Women look to their man in times of peril and chaos to be capable of withstanding anything the world throws at them.  As a man, you should be level headed and confident enough to face your own challenges, but marriage and children bring their challenges to your doorstep as well.  Far too often a woman gets into a complete frenzy over trivial things and demands you fix it.  There are proper ways to handle this, and we’ll go over how to analyze the situation so you know how to react.
