„Not all men seek rest and peace; some are born with the spirit of the storm in their blood, restless harbingers of violence and bloodshed, knowing no other path.” – Robert E Howard
The Centurion Method is a Revolutionary Training Program for the Post-Apocalyptic Hominid. We seek to create human beings cast of iron and cooled in blood and sweat.
We worship at the altar of steel and wood, stone and muscle; kneeling statues of chiselled gods hewn straight out of the bedrock from which they spawned.
Using the Guerrilla and Primal training programs we prepare the human body for whatever the cruelty of nature may thrust upon it. Survival of the Fittest is her mantra, death her husband, and the cry of ‘LIFE’ hot on our lips. We do not mess around.
The Guerrilla Program takes the flabby, fleshy slab of wet meat that is the modern westerner and tenderises him in the grinder of sweat and hardship. Simultaneously the Primal Program carves and cooks that slab until it is hard, lean and capable of anything.
The Centurion Method seeks to emulate their training pattern, taking inspiration from the Greek Hoplites and the Soldiers of Rome to create a fitness regime that tests the applicant to their utmost limits. We focus on training that is useful, practical and natural, the lynchpin being ourR.E.A.L. system.
R. REALISTIC. Training should be useful in a real world survival situation; can you carry an injured partner? Can you move long distances with little food and water? Can you move through wilderness with damaged limbs, quietly and stealthily?
E. ENDURANCE. The system focuses on quick movement over long distance, carrying heavy weight, just as the Romans were required to carry 30kg across 30 miles in a day.
A. AGILITY. The horrors of first century battle would have required soldiers to be fast, light on their feet, and above all able to jump, climb, crawl and fight for long periods without rest.
L. LOYALTY. Community bonds are what made the Legions so affective; brotherhood in the face of adversity was the only way to survive in such harsh situations. Training is focused on team activity, assistance, camaraderie and friendship.
All Gods and Men bless the Barbarians, the Legions and the
Cauldron of Sumeria from which we leapt.
„The gods forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield. We who found it are just men. Not gods. Not giants. Just men. The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle. You must learn its discipline. For no one – no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts. Steel; this you can trust.”
