Have you ever dreamed of leveling up in real life?

It’s easier than you think, and it’s quite rewarding. Let’s start with Steel MBS…

MBS stands for Mind, Body, and Soul and it’s designed for people like you.  No, not out of shape gamers–don’t be so sensitive, Mr. Sensitive. Steel MBS is for people who hate the gym and aren’t enthused about exercise, for people who think swords are cool and wouldn’t mind swinging one around, for people who want to align their spirituality with their physical body, and for people who want to break out of stale complacence.

Do you like swords? Ever googled “buy swords online” or “epic larp weapons”? Don’t be shy.  We sell a freakin’ sword workout, no shame here. We’ve larped, we’ve pretended to slay a fire drake with a tree branch, we’ve “travelled” Middle Earth atop Shadowfax with an elvish damsel holding our barrelled chest…. sorry, we have an affinity for awkward rifts and nerdy stuff.  Again, we sell freakin’ swords.

By now your thinking to yourself “this guy understands me. I must have whatever he’s on!” Then you’re ready, young padawan, to embark on the grandest journey of your life.

“I’m an avid larper and I know this isn’t a sword fighting program, but the movements really helped me build up my strength. My swordhand is quicker and shield doesn’t feel like a bag of bricks anymore.” -Jon Darson (Lloyd the Conqueror), Richmond, VA

Or you’re thinking, “This is weird…but I’m intrigued. I wonder how they came up with this idea.” Well let me tell you!

I saw a man walking on the street. He was a burly fellow and quite tall, maybe 6’2’’, wearing a grey jacket and blue jeans. Completely and utterly ordinary except for the 5-foot long blade that was slung across his back. Is a man allowed to carry such a thing, I thought. No one else seemed to notice or care, but there was no way I was letting this guy out of my sight; I had too many questions! So I followed him from a distance, gauging his disposition before I made my approach. He turned left down a busy street and made another left into an alley. I didn’t realize how stupid I was until the rushing sounds of cars and pedestrians faded to a low hum. I had just followed a large man wielding a sword down a narrow alleyway.

“Hey,” I echoed, “Sword Guy…is that thing legal?”

The smacking of his footsteps halted. “I was wondering when you were going to speak up. It’s quite rude to follow a man for five blocks and then call him ‘sword guy.’” He was right. Where were my manners?

“I’m sorry, but that sword is awesome. Is it real?”

“Yes, it’s real.”

I didn’t know what to say. This was an unpredictable situation. The man had turned and was facing me, close enough to see his eyes and close enough for

his sword to reach me.

“So…can I see it–?”

“–sure!”Before i had time to flinch, both of his hands grabbed a hold of the hilt that stuck up over his shoulder. Steel slipped along steel as he drew the blade out in front of him in a sure swing that put the point a foot away from my nose.

“Gnarly.” I was frozen in place, too afraid and too in awe to move. “Where’d you get it?”

“Where do you think?”

The Internet obviously. “What do you use it for?”

He loosed his grip on the hilt and dropped the point to the ground. Leaning on the sword like a cane, he said, “I use it to work out. The gym sucks and I hate running. I like to take it to the beach and swing it around like I’m fighting some epic battle. It’s gotten me pretty ripped.”

I could see that. His arms were toned, his shoulders were boulders. He looked a formidable opponent. I’ve always been full of off-the-wall ideas, I hate the gym too, and swords are dope. I thought to myself, I wouldn’t mind swinging one around on the beach.

“You ever thought of selling that? A sword

workout that you could do wherever you wanted? Larping meets meditation…or something like that.”

“My body and my sword.”

“Your mind, your body, and your sword–”

“No, my soul. Mind, body and soul.”

“Genius. What’s your name friend?”

“I go by Steel.”

I don’t recommend following sword wielding strangers down dark alleys, but sometimes it pays off.

”Collecting swords has always been a hobby of mine. Practicing with them to workout, though, is something I never tried. Steel MBS is fun, relaxing, and a great way to tone your body without feeling like you’re forcing yourself to exercise.” -Scottie Forbes, San Diego, CA

Starting is the key. Just start. No, not the start button… Get up off that couch, take that dusty Battlestar Galactica dvd out of your player, throw in Steel MBS, and get ready for a journey, my friend.

”I work in an office, and then I come home and spend a few hours playing League of Legends or Battlefield. I sit for much more of my day than what is healthy. Steel MBS is my way of getting up, sweating out my stress, and meditating. I used be very spiritual in my early 20’s and Steel MBS helped me recapture that.” -Gavin Freeman, Brandon, FL
