Bob Brandon served as my former teacher, coach, and mentor. He is a man of incredible courage, faith, integrity, character, and responsibility. In our modern age, where young men are largely undisciplined and emasculated, Bob stands out as a shining example of Christian masculinity. Ten years ago, as a 15 year old boy, Bob Brandon forced me to develop discipline, persistence, and take responsibilty for my actions through rigourous physical fitness training. I arrived under his instruction an average and unmotivated kid. I left his tutelage, a bold and principaled young man. As a varsity football and wrestling athlete in high school, I used the physical dicispline Bob taught me to excel. Afterwards, I channeled the mental strength, which he helped inspire in me to become a distinguished honors graduate student of a very prestigious public university. Whether training in Jujitsu or interning at the White House, I have always held the lessons Bob taught me close to my heart. When I have a son someday, I will want to teach him the same things that Bob Brandon showed me. Any father, who wants his son to be a bold Christian man, to put away childish things, need look no further. Bob Brandon is the epitome of manly strength and virtue. However, be forwarned. Bob is about turning boys into men, which often requires tough love. However, I can promise you that no one will love your son more, nor be more willing to hold him accountable.
