The Warrior Creed

The Warrior Creed

by Robert L. Humphrey

“Wherever I go,
everyone is a little bit safer because I am there.

Wherever I am,
anyone in need has a friend.

Whenever I return home,
everyone is happy I am there.”

————-

 

Before I got into Pick Up, when I was a firearms and tactical instructor, I put the Warrior Creed on the first page of every training manual I wrote. It resonated with me then, and even more so now.

The first part is what originally clicked. I was teaching survival skills, skills that people would hopefully NEVER need to use, but if they did need them, they would be prepared.

The 2nd part made sense because…..well anyone who knows me in real life, knows how I treat others, and also how I like to keep my good deeds private. 🙂

The last part, that was always the one that I felt I connected with the least. I wasn’t really close to my family, had a few close friends, but for the most part did my own thing. I could leave town for a week, and nobody would even know I was gone. I can remember thinking, if I died, how many people would even notice or miss me?

After I started my self improvement journey and then got into Pick Up, I learned how to connect with others on a deeper level. For the first time in my life, I actually started to think that people WOULD miss me, and that they would actually be excited to see me when I return.

Now I don’t just think that, I KNOW that!

Such a short and simple adage, which means so much

If each section doesn’t resonate with you-

  • why not?
  • what are you doing to change that?
  • what goals have you set in your life, and are you actively working on reaching them?

 

One of my recent goals was to eat sushi and drink sake in Japan, and as I prepare to fly there next week, I know that like always, everyone around me is safer, because I am there. No matter where I go, even if I can’t speak the language, I will make friends and have fun.

Lastly, I know that I will be missed and when I return, those I care about will be happy to see me.

-If I don’t fall in love with a Geisha girl or go to war with the Yakuza (sucks for THEM!), I should be back around the middle of the month. I will be checking my email and will get back to any customers as soon as I can throughout, but for much of this trip I will not have access to the internet. Which is exactly what I need 😀 

How a flashlight could have saved lives at the Batman shooting

so THAT’S why you carry a pocket flashlight and handgun with you when you go to the movies Bravo

 

I just got home from a 1on1 private lesson, but wanted to share this info with you guys before I went to bed.

 

I figured a quick youtube vid would cover it faster, so just made this- how a flashlight could have saved lives

 

Recent post on my forum-

Flashlight saved me from a fight

here a student who watched my 21 Convention speech shares how a flashlight helped him avoid a street fight

 

My 1hour vid on firearm selection, and additional low-light tips

Bravo- Tactical Self Defense & Firearm Selection Speech

this is the video he watched

 

And REQUIRED reading- Col John Grossman

On Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs

AMAZING post about proper mindset

 

Bottom line, a powerful flashlight that you shine into ANYBODY’S eyes will make it almost impossible for them to see.

If they can’t see, they can’t fight!

This would then allow people to escape, or be even more effective with their firearm or other weapon.

 

I always carry one at night, on airplanes, and in movie theaters.

You are not a man if you can not protect yourself, or your loved ones!- Bravo

 

-happy to answer any follow up questions in the comment section below

 

Anderson Silva won because of Steven Seagal

You might remember several months ago I posted a video of Steven Seagal teaching Anderson Silva some Aikido

Looks like Silva is crediting Sensei Seagal with teaching him the kick that knocked out Vitor last night

not sure why he is wearing yellow shooting glasses and is 2 jackets at the UFC, but who am I to question such a legend

JUST ADDED- ANOTHER VIDEO WHERE HE IS SAYING HE GAVE SILVA THE ENTIRE GAMEPLAN JUST BEFORE THE FIGHT AND IT IS EXACTLY WHAT HE DID

here is the original video of him teaching Silva

low front kicks start around the 4.20 mark

I wonder if Joe Rogan could take him…

Joe Rogan teaches GSP the turning side kick

This video was part of a recent Eddie Bravo 10th Planet video.

Joe Rogan had some clips in previous ones showing some of his TKD skills, but in this one he is actually showing GSP, who is a current UFC champ and many consider one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world.

It would be pretty badass to see GSP pull off this move in his next fight!

(and I rolled with Joe Rogan once at 10th Planet, his BJJ is fucking amazing)

Ask the Alpha Male

The life of an Alpha Male. Fun with friends, free lap dances in clubs, or teaching Close Quarter Combat to military and Law Enforcement.

I get so many questions I don’t have time to answer them all!

That is actually true, I am not one of those guys who sends out emails saying “SO many people have asked about blah blah” when NO ONE asked about it, or even knew to ask about it.

Being the Admin and Head Coach for the Neil Strauss Stylelife Academy and forums with almost 90,000 members, all of my awesome Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace (only still have it so people can find me) friends, and all the students or fans of the Pick Up world messaging me, many slip thru the cracks, even though I try my best to answer them all.

So I am coming up with a new weekly post here. Send in your questions, it can be about chicks, self confidence, firearms training, politics, martial arts, anything funny, or whatever else you may be curious about.

I will answer some of them each week, and will try to do so every time with a youtube video response.

And rest assured, unlike many other people who try to give advice, I am really good at it!

Email me at BravoPUA@gmail.com with the subject as ASK THE ALPHA MALE and I will pick some each week.

Don’t be the guy who thinks their question will never get answered, start now and there is a good chance it could be YOURS!

At least 54 shot across city over weekend in Chicago

At least 40 people were shot over the weekend across Chicago, with seven of them slain, according to police logs.

The toll covers a period from 8:43 p.m. Friday–after violent storms hit the city–to 6:39 this morning.

On Sunday, Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis acknowledged a high number shootings over the weekend and attributed more than half of them to the work of gangs.

Good thing guns or banned over there or it could have been even MORE!

Oh wait, it is already illegal to shoot and murder people. People need to realize that only the good guys that follow the laws are the only ones who obey these laws…

Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the US- from wikipedia- “Some municipalities, most notably Chicago, require that all firearms be registered with the local police department.[89] Chicago does not allow the registration of handguns, which has the effect of outlawing their possession, unless they were grandfathered in by being registered before April 16, 1982″

-updated number on title to reflect new total number of those killed and shot
