Breaking the “Remote Father” Cycle… - Strong As Hec

Breaking the “Remote Father” Cycle…

2020 gave men an exceptional opportunity... if you’re a father with young kids (especially a son). For the first time in ~6000 years there is a separation of father and son as a result of the industrial revolution.

(Which is only 140 years old)

Men are leaving the house to go to work.

So they’re no longer with the son.

The primary problem today and why men are failing to be the men, husbands, and fathers their family needs is... the increasing remoteness with the son.

The father gives his son son a gift—on a cellular level.

The Father Son Connection

When the father is near the son... he retunes the son to the masculine frequency from the feminine frequency.

For most of the boy’s life... he’s tuned to the frequency of his mother—the feminine frequency—and for good reason... without it, he’d die.

At some point there must be a clean break from the mother.

The Kikuyu tribe of central Kenya display a unique example of this many of us here in the west can learn from.

The older men of the tribe take a young boy (once old enough) from his mother to a special place... a good distance from the village.

He's fasts for 3 days.
The 3rd night he sits in the circle of a camp fire with the older man.
He’s hungry, thirsty, alert, and terrified.

One of the older men takes a knife.

Opens a vein in his own arm and lets some of his blood into a bowl.

The other men in the camp do the same.

The boy is then invited to take nourishment from the bowl.

(I know, sound gross)

Something interesting happens.

The boy learns 3 lessons from this experience:

  1. He learns nourishment doesn’t only come from his mother, but also from men.
  2. He learns the knife serves many purposes besides wounding others.
  3. And he learned he was no doubt welcome among the other males of the tribe.

The men then teach him myths, stories, songs... and other traditions which embody healthy male values.

And not only competitive values.

But spiritual values (a crucial part of male initiation, something lacking today). It’s these stories and traditions which allow us as men to take hold of our wounds.

And it's why I always say, Jiu-Jitsu will teach you everything you need to know about living your life.

Jiu-Jitsu from a Metaphysical Perspective

On a metaphysical level... Jiu-Jitsu is male initiation.

The journey is HARD... it’s riddles with failure and it’s why most men never take the journey.

If you dare to take the journey...  it creates a clean break from the world.

(Which also represents the “mother”—your comfort zone)

It lights the path to your truest purpose and potential. Your soul receives the nourishment... through stories and traditions from the lives of other men further along the journey.

You’re empowered with skills to serve others.

And most importantly...

... you’re welcomed into a tribe—a community—of other men.

An Opportunity of a Lifetime

2020 has given you have a unique opportunity to break the “Remote Father” cycle my friend.

For the first time in 140 years... men are working from home now.

They're home with the family—with their sons—and it's not by coincidence. It's by divine providence as there's a great need for the father.

I've felt this tug most of 2020 myself.

To be home with my family, with my children.

You have the same opportunity.

The opportunity to no longer be “remote.” But to be with your son and retune him to the masculine frequency.

To share stories about your life... and welcome him to the male world.

(Even if you don’t have kids, male mentorship is needed)

99.999% of men never get this.

I NEVER got this.

Today's men are kids inhabiting a 40+ year old body—scared to death.

The result?

Young boys—even men—seek to learn masculinity from each other.

(Look as street gangs)


From an ancient and historical perspective, it doesn’t work. You can’t learn from men your own age or from someone at the same spot in their journey of initiation.

You need older men... or men further along the journey.

Men are suffering from a starvation “father energy.”

Today there is a thirst—a hunger—for the father.

Men want it—even if their ego denies it.

If you grew up without your father... without proper life lessons & traditions to bring you into your full manhood.

If you're looking for direct coaching and need the support of other men. I’m making room in my 16 week men's High Performance Coaching program.

Where for 16 weeks, I give you the strategy/formula/blueprint to build a strong, lean, and more capable body in less time so they can:

1.) Move like they did in their 20's and 30's.

2.) Be more present with their wife and kids... and still having time for themselves.

To accomplish this... you’ll need this 3 part high performance strategy:

Strategy #1️⃣: A Quick Kettlebell Coaching Program

A step-by-step training system to guide you through the Performance Progression Pyramid so you can take your body and performance to the next level.

(... without constant aches and pains. You'll also receive coaching on how to eat in a non-restrictive way to not only support your training. But also help you achieve your physical goals––you know, to "LOOK" the part too.)

Strategy #2️⃣: Recovery Accelerating Mechanism (R.A.M)

If you’re not able to recover from your workouts... you’re shooting yourself in the foot.

A Recovery Accelerating Mechanism is a proven system to help men train hard, more often, and remain fresh & healthy as possible.

When you get this right, the days of waking up feeling "crushed" are *POOF*, gone.

Strategy #3️⃣: "Bucketing System"

Men are trapped in their stories.

The lies they've been telling themselves about WHY they can't be consistent.

WHY they don't have time.

Lies like, "If I just had __________, then I'd be able to [attain this specific goal/desire]."

It's this alibi which keeps men "stuck."

If you want to become a BETTER man––A HIGH-PERFORMANCE MAN.

You must gain control over your mind.

Your thoughts.

... and the stories you've been telling yourself.

The man who has control over his mind can exercise that control... and direct it towards attaining any objective.

"Bucketing" teaches men HOW TO RESPOND to the circumstances in his life.

(... Men haven't been show/taught how to RESPOND. They either project out. Or don't respond at all... which leads him down the path of passivity.)

A bucking system illuminates WHY he's not taking action towards your life goals.

It provides the blueprint to establishing your values, vision, and purpose... so you can take aligned action once and for all.

Here's what you need to do.

[1.] Apply to the Academy.

If/when your application is approved… we'll be In touch within 48 hours to set up a time to chat.

… and discuss the enrollment process.

[2.] Do this ASAP because my time is limited (and super focused). I only accept a certain number of students at a time. Which allows me to poor all of my energy and attention into our men to attain their goals.
