Mano-a-mano is a Spanish construction meaning "hand to hand." It was used originally in bullfights where just the matador and the bull confront each other. Current Spanish usage describes any kind of competition between two people where they both compete, but somehow cooperate in achieving something. Mano-a-mano the devotional is a daily opportunity for men and their teenaged sons to share the Word of God for mentoring and discipleship. Men love competition and we know we are in competition for our young men's souls. Men and young men alike are competing yet cooperating in the achievement of our goals to become the men that God intends us to be: His men, His mighty warriors, His true and brave allies.
