Cigar Contest

As much as it pains me to say it, summer is winding down folks. Even as I write this, leaves are drying and falling from the trees, the days are growing shorter, and there is a distinct crispness in the air. And while the warmth of a beautiful summer night will be greatly missed, the autumn brings its own unique characteristics.

Consider this – as the weather cools, the harsh climate brings out the rugged qualities in a man. Firewood will be chopped, animals will be hunted, even a man’s beard will begin to grow… It is the season that brings out the manliness in a man!

Flash contest – Show the Dojo your manliness

What makes a man a man? Well, a beard sure doesn’t hurt, but there’s more to it than that, it’s an art really. A manly activity is something the weak shy away from, something challenging, demanding, and yet, necessary.

We all know smoking may very well be the manliest thing a man can do, but for this contest we want to see the ultimate manly activities.

  • Bourbon
  • Beards
  • Cars
  • Guns
  • Woodworking

These are good places to start, but we want to see you get creative Dojo, make your entries count!

And women, don’t think your disqualified from this contest! We know many of the Dojo women are perfectly capable of doing more manly activities than most average dudes, you may even have a leg-up on the competition simply by entering the contest!
