The video starts with a student at the Cave of Adullam trying to break a board during a test.


"In our comprehensive physical, mental and emotional stability training system Mūsar Rū, we place a strong emphasis on biblical warrior-hood; where each recruit focuses on sharpening each other, not surpassing each other in training," Wilson told BuzzFeed.


And through tears, his student explains that he's having trouble punching the board with his left hand.

"We place strong emphasis on allowing our recruits to openly express their emotions," he told BuzzFeed.

Wilson reassures the boy that it is OK to cry, even if that is something that has been culturally frowned upon for black men to do.

"We can teach them how to use those emotions to their benefit," he told BuzzFeed.

And he teaches him that mental fortitude is vital, especially for black men.

"Men are humans and it's okay to cry, but never give up when facing adversity. During these perverse times, it's truly vital that we, the men and fathers of this generation, do not allow our boys to grow up with a false sense of masculinity like many of us did," he told BuzzFeed.
