Please explain the meaning of the phrase "make a man out of you" in the following sentence:
I'll make a man out of you.
Thanks a lot.

It means that you will make someone mature.
For example you can say, "The army will make a man out of you" meaning that the army will instill in you certainly 'manly' characteristics.
Hope that helps,
