In this episode we talk about:

  • The single art form that Ted practiced to excel in every area of life, including his relationships with women and his friendships.
  • The importance of developing a healthy relationship with our masculine energy.
  • His rocky and painful journey from family tragedy to healing and reconnecting with his father.
  • Why crying is one of the most manly things men can do.

Quotes from this episode:

There is a shadow to masculine energy and that’s why it’s important to be in touch with it. It’s not inherently a bad thing. How you express it is key. Martial arts helped me with that. It’s about mastering your emotions, mastering yourself, and knowing that you DON’T have to get into a fight.

My little brother was kidnapped when I was 19, he was 9. My dad and mom, they changed 2 laws in this country to make my brother’s legacy mean something.

There’s a big misconception about women are emotional and men are logical, it’s all bullshit.
