What is a bruiser?

Simple…

It’s a tough guy, someone who can fight and take a punch, he has thick skin, a strong jaw, and can deliver a heavy fist. The type of guy you don’t want to mess with. He doesn’t take shit from anyone. Soft spoken and quiet, he doesn’t start fights, he only finishes them. A real badass!

So, you want to learn how to be a bruiser?

Here’s how…

1) Start fighting! That might sound too simple or like bad advice to some, but the fact is that if you want to become a bruiser you must fight! The more you do it, the better you become at it. You might lose more than you win, or even flat out get your ass kicked most of the time, but that is helping you. Just get up and keep going! Never back down, never show pain, never admit defeat. You gotta brawl if you wanna be a badass! Eventually it will pay off.

2) Learn! I recommend this course for those of you wanting to do it yourself at home: HARDCORE FIGHTING SECRETS

3) Keep training, learning, and fighting! You can’t become the baddest dude out there if you don’t.

Be a bruiser. Don’t get bullied. Don’t be scared. You will be surprised at how tough you really are if you set your mind to defeating anyone who messes with you!
