"This is learned a behaviour and a cycle that needs to be broken. So now, it's about redefining masculinity, it's about creating your own footprints for your children to follow in so that you can make a positive change for the future. To me, the real testament of your strength isn't physical, it's what's up here and what's in here. Your strength is in your spirit, which for me means honouring and protecting my wife, and being a positive role model for my son."
