WHAT IS THE 
MEN OF WAR CRUCIBLE? 

In it's Rawest Form The Men of War Crucible is a Rite of Passage that is designed for MEN. 
After graduation the gates into the Men of War Society open and you enter the most powerful brotherhood of 21st Century Men in the world.  

We Weaponize Businessmen, CEO's, Leaders and Warrior Minded Men with High Level Strategies, Philosophies and Tactics Utilized by Elite Ancient Warrior Cultures.

The Men of War Crucible extracts, interprets and implements these profound elements into modern life for success in all facets of a Man's Domain.

After coaching over 10,000 men we have pierced the veil into the world of Warrior Development. By implementing key training elements which have been lost for hundreds of years, this program immerses you in a world that only a few have experienced. We continue to evolve and bring you the most effective methods to transform men into modern day warriors.

This is much more than a "program", it is a way of life. We don't hire fancy big name outside contractors in order to try to sell you a  "cool program". The men who attend this Rite of Passage do so because they believe in Man of War Paragon (Philosophy to Live Life) and the Men of War Society.

"I have attended several so called men programs, this is at another level."

MOW MEN CASE STUDIES

"The most powerful experience of my life."

PARABELLUM TRAINING ELEMENTS 

*ELEMENT [1] FORTIS PROTOCOL (VIRTUAL) 6 WEEKS
The training commences with a 6-week high performance training program that is focused on fortifying the mind, creating powerful habits and executing on your mission.    

*ELEMENT [2] PREP PHASE (VIRTUAL) 6 WEEKS
This element prepares you for the MOW Crucible. During this element you will meet your squads and team leaders. Coaches will design a training regiment focused on the Crucible. You will be given special tasks, squad challenges and objectives to complete within this time frame.

*ELEMENT [3] MEN OF WAR CRUCIBLE (BOOTS ON GROUND) 5 DAYS
For Five (5) Full Days and Four (4) Nights you will be transported back in time to the realm of the Ancient Warrior Cultures. Get ready to experience a unique approach to building warriors, one that has been lost for many years. We have designed this crucible to be equally challenging in mind and body. 

*ELEMENT [4] ENTER THE MEN OF WAR SOCIETY (LIFETIME)
Your Self Development does not stop upon graduation. As a matter of fact, as we like to say, the real work begins upon graduation. You will enter an exclusive brotherhood known as the Men of War Society. Some may describe it as a secret society consisting of high level men and others describe it as a band of brothers from all walks of life with a common mission of constant improvement. 

Please Note: This is not your typical bootcamp or men's retreat. While our coaching cadre consists of highly decorated active and retired military and law enforcement personnel, this program has nothing to do with either. The focus of this crucible is to forge men into Men of War (AKA) 21st Century Men and get them ready for the battlefield of life.

This crucible will break you down mentally, physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. It will test the limits of your mindset, your ability to lead, your courage, your physicality and your commitment.

The forging process of a warrior is not an easy one, however it is life changing one. The men who walk alongside through this journey will become your brothers for life. 

" Using the principles that are taught in the MOWs my company 10X in less than 18 months."

ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Rafa Conde is a highly decorated former Law Enforcement Officer, Narcotics Agent, SWAT Officer and DEA Task Force Agent. Today he is the founder and CEO of Man of War.

Rafa is renowned for his work with thousands of business professionals, executives, leaders and elite achievers throughout the USA and South America. 

Rafa is the creator of the Men of War Crucible and the Men of War Society.

His life's journey took him down two very different streets. From a top producing Wall Street Stockbroker to the streets of one of the most violent cities in America. This transition from stockbroker to cop was a critical defining moment in Rafa's life. 

His dream was to become a narcotics agent and to be attached to a Federal Task Force. He honorably served his community and his country as undercover narcotics agent in Vice, MADTF, DEA Tactical Diversion Squad and ICE Blue Lightning Task Force. Throughout his career Rafa also served as a SWAT officer, Field Training Officer, Hostage Negotiator and taught at the Police academy for more than a decade. His specialty was defensive tactics and firearms.  

Rafa studied, trained and taught martial arts for over 35 years. He took his experience throughout Central and South America teaching Combat firearms and hand to hand combat to the Military, SWAT teams, Federal Police and Security Forces. 

In 2017 he established Man of War after witnessing a demise of the warrior spirit in male cadets that were coming through the police academy. Soon after, he started the Man of War podcast which became an instant success with over 17 million downloads to date. The Men of War Crucible was founded in 2018 along with the Men of War Society.

Today, Rafa has coached over 10,000 men to re-ignite their warrior spirit. His mission is focused on building men to be stronger leaders, visionaries, husbands and fathers, essentially 21st Century Men. He has built a powerful global movement focused on empowering and developing stronger men. His innovative and straightforward no-non sense ability to communicate powerful messages has made him a highly sought after influential speaker and corporate leadership and culture consultant. 

 Rafa has been featured in Univision, CBS, Observer, Inc, and Newsmax. 

" The Man of War Paragon has aligned me mentally, spiritually and physically."

The Men of War Crucible integrates principles, philosophies and strategies from three warrior cultures. Each brings unique elements which can be applied in today's world. 

The Knights Templar were one of the most powerful warrior cultures the world has ever known. Not only were they one of the most skilled fighting units but they were also attributed with starting the banking system. The Templars were mysterious and served for a higher purpose. God was at the center of their existence. They represent serving for a higher purpose, adaptation, the ability to pivot and guardianship. 

The Samurai are revered as the deadliest most refined combatants of our time. Their dedication to self perfection and self discipline is legendary. The Samurai focused on developing the mind, body and spirit through a a balance of repetitive hard training, philosophy and meditation. They represent self discipline, adherence to a code of conduct, focus and attention to detail. 

The Spartans are known for their ferocious military component. Every Spartan was forged into a battle hardened warrior from a young age through the intensive rite of passage known as the Agoge. As a unit they were nearly invincible. They represent tenacity, courage, team building and brotherhood.
