Dear Friend, Be a MAN.

This three-word sentence was one of the most important elements of the Charles Atlas Dynamic Tension course. First assembled in the 1920’s and sold through mail order, the course didn’t just teach exercises. It talked about attitude and what it takes to be somebody. Atlas may have been the most famous person to use the “M” word ... but a quick gander through other old-time sports and fitness books will show that authors of the early 20th century actually thought about what a MAN is ... or more importantly, what a MAN can be. Books on wrestling, boxing, jiu-jitsu and judo were often referred to as the “manly” arts. And each time the word “MAN” or “MANLY” is used, the reader gets an injected sense of possibility. The “M” word makes you imagine what you can become if you simply buckle down and follow a daily fitness regimen or combat-oriented art ... or devote yourself to any other worthwhile endeavor. Today we see the exact opposite approach being used. A number of martial arts are sold under the pretense that you do not need to be a “Man” or “manly.” “You don’t need to be tough. Strength, fitness and conditioning are not necessary. Technique is all you need.” Funny, isn’t it? Commercial successes of today appeal to the inadequacy of an individual but offer no internal solutions. Everything is external.
“You don’t need to be ‘A Man’, just use our flashy technique.” “You don’t need to be ‘A Man’, just take our supplements.” “You don’t need to train hard , just take steroids.” “You don’t need to be responsible for your life, it’s other people’s fault.”

In today’s world, how often do we see the words “MAN” and “MANLY” used? Never. Part of this may be that men of today are afraid of what women might think. And I understand this. But it is neither sexist nor chauvinistic for men to think of and work toward becoming an ideal MAN. I believe a man should be a MAN. It is only natural. Whether you are a man or woman, however, I believe it is a crime to dumb

He begged me to get off. Now I know all the moralizing about how the bigger man walks away and all that gobbledegook.

I grabbed him by his thick curly hair and knocked his head into the brick stall a few times. How you deal with each test is what’s important. There are many other stories I can tell.

I immediately crowded him so that he couldn’t punch me. and during that time he came to the conclusion that I wasn’t such a bad guy after all. He insisted that I let him up so that he could beat the crap out of me. I gave him one more chance to stop. My right foot punted him in the gonads.
