" Four days after hitting 58, I participated in my first TRX class in several months. Taught by a fit and very attractive young blonde gal (with my wife in attendance I keep eyes front), I made it through and will come back for more."

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Thanks for your comment. I can't tell you how many students never make it past three or four classes because it's boring learning kihon, or they find out they're not going to become kung fu theater-like acrobats.

20 year old looking for advice from you "white collar" gents.....is the money worth it?

This has always been the area I've struggled with most in my life....finding out what to do for a career. I've never had a passion for one specific thing. There isn't one job that seems to "stick out" over the others. I'm kind of in every direction when it comes to choosing careers. One day I'll think welder, the next it's logistics, the next it's cyber security. At 20 years old this feeling of uncertainty is not where I want to be, so I'm really trying to figure out not just what I want to do…See More
