Recently friend of the site and fellow “Man of Honor” Darryl Frierson of Ashy2Classy.net penned an article on the losers (my word) who had something to say about the charitable contributions of Andre “Dr. Dre” Young and Kevin Durant. People were upset at Dr. Dre for donating 35 Million dollars to the University of Southern California (USC) instead of (insert random HBCU here) and mad at Kevin Durant for “not giving enough” to Oklahoma City for the tornado disaster. In my school (and obviously the same school that Darryl was raised in) you stay out of another man’s pockets unless you yourself are doing something. Too often in our Twitter age do we take on this guise that Celebrities are non-people who must bend to the demands of the hive. It becomes frustrating for everyone involved and it becomes especially disgusting when it’s a charity that… [Read more]

Many women seek money in their mates while enjoying the luxuries of a modern society of gender equality. Men on the other hand have not fully evolved into this and still find it necessary to provide for their wives as well as themselves. Women in the dating world use buzzwords and codes when describing a man of money. Code that can be deciphered through words like: “I want a man that is ambitious” or “I want a man with a degree and goals”. All of this translates into their want for a man of high salary. Appearances may die over time but a man’s desire for appearances doesn’t  Wealth and riches comes and goes but a woman’s desire for shiny things lasts a lifetime. With that said, why is it that society calls men superficial for seeking beauty yet calls women “smart” for seeking a wealthy… [Read more]

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. He attributed his customary heartburn, constipation and the presence of blood in his stool as “normal” (to him), especially that hemorrhoids were common among his family members.  Well, a colonoscopy had this vibrant 40+ year-old saying “Oh shit!” Did you know you should be taking a look at your poop on a regular basis to keep an eye on your digestive heath? Stools are the end product of eating and digesting our meals, as the body rid itself of undigested foods and toxins.  Have you ever wondered what a “normal stool” should be like especially when we experience the hardness and looseness of this smelly necessity? Well, let’s take a look. Normal Stool should have the general color of cardboard, 4 to 8 inches long, and curved like a banana. It should leave your body… [Read more]

In martial arts we would do 100 repetitions of basic movements in order to get it to the point of reactionary when needed. I will never forget the day when I kicked a buddy in the face for slapping me in the back of the head playfully. At the time I was competing and my teacher would have us doing those kicks all day, every day, in an attempt to remove conscious thought (over-thinking things) and let the moves flow whenever they were needed. What I didn’t realize back then is how many of life’s little things involved the same process. We commit things to memory and then we execute whenever we need them, it is the same in everything and the people who are best at it seem to retain the information better than the rest of us. In competitive video games the same holds… [Read more]

When it comes to “Game” many guys mistake the art for being one that is mastered by following flowcharts, saying lines that have worked for other guys, and doing the same thing for every woman until one bites and gets trapped. This is why we felt the need to give you some tips to help you grow some actual game instead of the stereotypical garbage that will chase women away from you. The following list of 10 things comes from the tactics that real wolves in the dating game swear and live by. They are realistic things that exude confidence, machismo and makes a woman comfortable to let you in – first her aura, then her thighs, and then her heart. Peep game: 1. Give compliments from the heart We have preached this until we are getting blue in the face over here. Do not… [Read more]

If there is any one character in the entire Star Wars universe more disappointing to me it’s Master Yoda everyone’s beloved little Lannik. Yoda is brought across as the epitome of everything good yet as a leader he was nothing more than a fat coward who got extremely comfortable in his position as grandmaster. Men should try NOT to be like Master Yoda as opposed to emulating him for many reasons. Sure he gave great anecdotes, had inherently good intentions, but when it came time to act he chose instead to run even after his order was wiped out. A Captain always goes down with the ship, a God King rides at the forefront of the cavalry, and Samurai Lords fall on their swords rather than be disgracefully taken captive by their rivals. Even in old kung fu movies the master Abbots of the Shaolin… [Read more]

Understanding the game of love and happiness can be a complicated one for men and women who weren’t blessed with a tremendous amount of confidence. Luckily for them we have people who have figured it out that are willing to share their secrets with those who are humble enough to ask their help. One such individual is a man by the name of Mr. Locario who was kind enough to give an interview to The Hall of The Black Dragon on dating advice and what he has to offer. Hey Mr. Locario, thank you for taking the time to enter the Halls and allow us to pull your coat on women, the game, and how you can help guys get better at figuring it out. The first thing I wanted to ask you is on getting advice. There are many web spaces out there where you have guys calling themselves Pick… [Read more]

Men of the world, 2012 was not our year… not by a long shot and if we continue on in the same vein as we have been we will accelerate the demise of masculine identity in this modern society. If we are going to make resolutions then becoming better men should be one of them. What is a better man? A better man is a better version of who you are – a more confident version, one who will not let the mainstream convince you that being a man is a bad thing. A better man is a hero to boys, an icon to follow for the confused and unaware, an avatar of where we should be going. The following list of things are steps we could all take to become better men and it isn’t some hogwash textual castration disguised as a “good men… [Read more]
