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.
Felt like sharing some progress pics. We all gonna make it, kings. 💪

Keep up the good work mate!
Thanks! Sometimes you grind and grind, with little to show for. Other times you see more progress in two weeks than you do in three months. This was one of those weeks.
@Ian-PA#9651 Aye you're looking leaner, no question. Nice work brother. It's important for all Identitarians to be aesthetic but especially for our upper leadership. Keep it up!
It's the weeks like this that make it all worth it
@Deleted User Your V taper is really noticeable.
Good call tucking in the shirt. Untucked looks sloppy, and hides your waistline.
If you aren't fat, you should always tuck in your shirt. Bring back classic aesthetics
