You always have to stand up for yourself. Always. Men respect strength and so do women. You can't seem week and look to be backing down to either. Don't ever be afraid to square up to someone.
Situation will dictate of course as it does with everything but 9/10 always stand your ground in something like that. I'd rather get your ass kicked than stand down
"Those days, are over."
Say "come at me boy, lets have some fun'
These primitives only understand force. They realize the race difference and want the step up with White women. They think we are weak yet smart. No mercy, no compromise.
Let me take to the opportunity to shill for training. I’m not bragging at all but I train so much nowadays that my body is like a spring trap. Sometimes my wife (who trains too) or friends will come up and poke me or tag me playfully. My body reacts on its own in fractions of a second into a defensive maneuver. It’s really fun to see that and gives me a great deal of confidence.
I hear you guys...yeah it was one of those things where it took a second to realize, wait this guy is probably talking about us, and juuust loud enough for me to hear. Chances are the guy was too cowardly to say something straight to our face. Probably trying to look good in front of his friends
@Pat-MA#7757 That's how I would read it. If you don't have the balls to say it to me, then I'll let it go because there's no reason to create drama unless I have to.
Yeah..again, it could have gone either way, so I wanted to see what you guys think. Also I don’t think it impacted my gf too much...which is probably the most important thing. I usually dont care if someone says something to me and I’m by myself...guess I have learned to put my ego aside most of the time
There has been times that I wished I would have ignored people. It just isn't in me to do. I especially don't want to look weak in front of my wife. But at the same time I've had trouble from not ignoring something stupid like this.
There's no perfect answer to any situation, but nobody was hurt and your girl obviously didn't care @Pat-MA so you made the right call. I'm sure if it came to it you would have defended her. That being said, I think it's important we start letting them know that we won't be tolerating this type of behaviour anymore.
Interesting takes guys. Seems like theres pros and cons to each move
I appreciate everyones feedback. Always good to know I can come here to get good insight from like-minded individuals
@Deleted User agreed bottom line training is essential in this movement like our ancestors carried swords to defend themselves one must learn to harden his body into a sword
Lol F I forgot this is an IE server sorry everyone
Since we seem to be dwelling on this dynamic of how we justify our reactions(or over-reactions) to perceived aggression, I'd like to dig deeper on this subject.
My root philosophy:
-If a man lacks the capacity for violence, he cannot choose non-violence. Because non-violence is his ONLY option.
-A strong and virtuous man has the capacity for violence, yet is very discriminatory in it's application.
As @Deleted User has said, training and experience are vital. By experiencing violence, in small doses in controlled environments(martial arts/sparring), we grow in our capacity to not be intimidated, to protect those close to us and to project our dominance when the situation calls for it.
In my view a virtuous man is:
1)Physically strong. This deters aggression from others, and increases your competency.
2)Martially skilled with his own body. ex. Martial arts, Grappling, striking etc..
3)Martially skilled with the tools of their time. This would means firearms.
100% agreed. I'm a big and imposing man and have never been easily intimidated, but since I added bjj to my powerlifting I have not been even close to feeling anything other than like I can handle myself
Found an interesting channel on body aesthetics. Do you notice any peculiar about all the "wimps" portrayed as examples in this video? All but Jon Heder, that is.
Brought back some white Rex gear will be putting them up on the website
Mma gloves too waiting on shorts
gonna need those gloves my dude
@Deleted User Great take. I think I subconsciously realized that, but you brought it to light
@Robtheroman Please let us know when you post those. I'm after a White Rex shirt
Has anyone done Kyokushin or know someone who has done it?
@Vasily Kazansky - OH#4473 I played around using Kyokushin rules in sparring before. It's an odd ruleset.
You can kick someone in the head, but can't punch the head.

Since my trip been seriously into m8l8th
Has anyone used the training masks (lung capacity)?
My weight has fluctuated alot during the past two years,but recently I've approached my diet and exercise with greater discipline and a serious mind. I still have plenty of work to do. I'd like to drop another 2% body fat or so, maybe put on a *bit* of muscle too. Granted, I know that I'm not as stacked as some of the lads in here,but I'm feeling good today.
