Rafa B&W 2.jpg

Rafa Conde has dedicated his life to the resurgence of the warrior mind. With four decades of martial arts training under his belt, tutelage from Zen masters, experience as a DEA/Narcotics/SWAT officer, and at one point in his life having been an elite Wall Street broker, to call Rafa a modern day warrior is an understatement.

Having cultivated his philosophies of what a modern day warrior should be, Rafa is now spreading his warrior philosophies so that men everywhere can elevate themselves to a place where they can dominate every facet of their lives. This movement is known as the Man of War.

Rafa’s journey started At age 17, after realizing that traditional schooling wasn’t something that aligned with his mindset on life, he dropped out to give all of his time and effort to martial arts and to seeking new competitive environments to thrive in. This led him to secure a position as a stockbroker at the age of 23, where his warrior spirit of competition allowed him to be wildly successful at raising capital and closing high-level clients from around the globe. Over the next decade, Rafa successfully opened his own independent brokerage with nearly one billion dollars under management.

The Men of War Crucible

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) Modern Day Warriors 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.

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.
