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.

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. Continue reading “Protect Your Family by Learning How to Fight: Part 1”

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?

What should they major in?

Can they qualify for a scholarship?

And the list goes on…

Fortunately, there’s an easy approach to sorting out all the questions of college, but requires both you and your wife being on the same page before discussing it with your son or daughter Continue reading “The Discussion of College and Majors With Your Kids”

How to Effectively Debunk Toxic Feminist Narratives

Over the past few decades, the liberal left has been slowly undermining traditional family values, corroding the cornerstones that raised up Western civilization to become the shining city on the hill for the rest of the world to emulate.  Their hooks are so deep into modern society that many of their messages go unrecognized or unanswered by the unwashed masses.  As the protector of your family, you must root these toxic narratives out of your household to prevent them from causing discord.
