This is why we fight; this is why they die!
There is an iconic scene from the film 300 where Leonidas asks his Spartans “What is your profession?” where, in unison they respond with “Aroo!” – in their minds they have no other identity or profession that they hold other than warrior.
Fightrope.com is for those who identify as the warrior class. We, the first responders, the ones on the front lines fighting war, fires, viruses, and fascism. For those of us who are cut from this cloth, why is it, that you fight? Who do you fight for?
The warriors in the gym training day in and day out for the prize ring, you belong to this warrior class. Are you chasing glory? Why is it that you fight? Who are you fighting for? When the organizations are counting you out and they cast you to the side, where does that fire go that lead you into battle in the first place?
I pose these questions for you and you alone, but just know that whether you are a sailor bracing gaels so powerful they can topple the mightiest trees and buildings, or the future champion who’s put love, children, and a life behind for the glory of titles and records, we at fightrope.com will stand by you.
As a Veteran, former first responder, and prize fighter, I am reminded that the true aspect of the warrior is one who trains for battle even when the naysayers decline to admit there is one on the horizon. We are the ones who know the difference and reach for the rope in the morning rays as the birds begin their morning songs and the dew still glistening on the grass. We start stretching then skip for a few minutes to fire up the heart and get the blood going. Then we chase down everyone and anything that gets in the way our are dreams and aspirations.
