In Field Training

You Want To Get Good, But Here is the Problem:
PUA is Full of Weird People and Costly Rip-Off Bootcamps.

The problem with looking for other wings on PUA forums and lairs is that 99% of guys are weird and terrible and are likely to turn you into a creeper.  Ever read a PUA forum and see some dude with a billion posts giving advice? You think he's awesome and then one day you actually meet him in real life and he is a complete tool.  

Don't even get me started with most pickup companies.  There are no credentials required to be a pickup coach.  You can slap up a website and call yourself one.  Over the years, I have been to many pickup conventions and spoke to many coaches.   I have also had students who have taken bootcamps with other companies.  My friends and I have personally observed many coaches in the field.  There are just tons of horror stories.  I will share with you a few.  Names of companies are of course taken out.

  • Coach/Company A has had a girlfriend for many years and hasn't been in the field this entire time and also never demos.
  • Coach/Company B has ditched students during bootcamp to game his own girl, and has actually jumped into the girl's taxi cab while on bootcamp!  Personal friend of mine who took the bootcamp and received a debrief of only 10 minutes long.  Company highly focuses on drawing state from within, saying anything that comes to mind but doesn't focus enough on calibration, fashion, and being normal, causing many students to ignore social cues and personal space thus creeping out all girls in the club and not learning from their mistakes.
  • Coach/Company C forces students to buy a table during bootcamp, drinks while coaching during infield, and have students use alcohol as a method of isolating the girl (which requires no game) and photographs pictures of students with girls (who are clearly bottle whores) and puts it on social media as if its some actual game accomplishment.  He has also been spotted wall flowering in Hollywood.
Yep, definitely a 4-some going down.  LOL okay bro, lets be cereal, it was the table and the free drinks.

  • Coach/Company D makes a lot of in-field videos however the videos are trollish by nature and are mainly for entertainment purposes.  Such videos gives viewers a misconception on the structure of game.  Concepts are dumbed down and tailored towards a younger audience.  Many have mimicked these infield videos and have been kicked and banned from malls and other day time locations.
When you sign up with here, you get me and only me.  With larger companies, you're at the mercy of a random coach, and even worse, a junior coach or even an intern!

Objective of a Bootcamp

A good bootcamp experience includes 6 components.
  1. Developing Good Approach Habits:  A student who approaches 3-4 sets a night needs to quickly learn to not waste time between sets and should ideally after bootcamp be able to target 15+ sets a night (or 80% of time in set).  The student will also need to learn how to plow each set and know how far to push each set.
  2. Instant Post Set Feedback:  The student should return after the set ends for immediate feedback to avoid repeat mistakes in the next set.
  3. Sticking Points Identified:  This can include a whole variety of things including body language, verbals, inner game, elements like teasing and push/pull, and progressing game structure.  This can only be done through the aid of a microphone and wireless transmitter so the coach can listen in on the conversation.
  4. Reference Experience:  The idea is to push the student further along in set during bootcamp than previously accomplished while alone.  Gaining reference experience is very powerful because it quickly removes limiting beliefs.  Gaining reference experience without coaching is usually from trial & error and/or luck.  Once something is done and seen for the first time, repeating it for the second time is much easier.  This requires two way communication between the student and the coach.  The microphone and wireless transmitter provides the coach on the status of the set and the compliance level of the girl.  In return, the coach provides text and verbal cues to guide the student while in set without the girl noticing.
  5. Debrief: The debrief is ideally done outside of the club environment without distractions and addition stimulus.  The debrief will summarize the sticking points of each student.  This is best done by playing the video of the recorded sets to the students.  It is important to record the students while they are in set because the video allows the student to see himself in a third person perspective which identifies clearly what the student is doing right and wrong.  There are many key critical moments in set for example the opening, the transitioning, the escalation, the blowout.  The video can be reviewed repeatedly and played frame by frame to capture exactly what was done to cause the blowout.  Without video, subtle things like body language, pauses, specific phrases are almost impossible to identify.  They happen too fast and the student has no idea what is doing wrong because he can't see himself from a third person perspective.
  6. Homework:  The homework is a summarized email of weekly tasks to be performed outside of bootcamp to address the identified sticking points.  The student must realize that a bootcamp alone without continual infield practice will provide minimal long term change.
I am currently the only coach on the planet to place a microphone and wireless transmitter on every student as well as having the equipment capabilities to record the student infield videos for the entire duration of the night.

Why Most Guys Don't Get Good

The hardest part of PU is the first 3 month hump.    For most people, 3 months is the make or break point.  If you don't see results by the third month, you are statistically likely to drop out.  Have you seen anybody stay on a workout program after seeing no results for 3 months?  It's very rare indeed.  Still don't believe me?  Go to a PUA convention and then go back the next year and see how many people still remain.  The dropout rate is 90 - 95%.  If you are a random guy, there is a 19 out of 20 chance you will quit PU just like everyone else.

Take my personal experience.  I was exposed to PU at age 23 (2006) heart broken from an ex girlfriend and the same sad story that nobody gives a shit about so I will save you the trouble of reading, LOL.  I didn't seriously commit to approaching till I was 28.  I know what you are thinking: "WTF, this buff guy used to be scared of approaching? How can it be?" Well, its the truth.  I was basically a keyboard jockey for 5 years and the only reason I ever got good was because I was fortunate enough to meet a PUA coach that took me under his wing as an assistant.  That is how damn lucky I am.  I worked with him 5 nights a week, I went to every single bootcamp and in-field training he taught, and I transcribed all the teleconference calls.  For two years, I pretty much sold my soul to pickup.  I am what you call a natural with a synthetic understanding of game.  In essence, someone who appears natural when you watch him but yet he can break down game structure.

I used to think "If I just read one more book, if I read one more material, I would make the perfect approach".  That answer is FALSE.  Look at how many books I bought.  It did nothing but paralyze me and prevented me further from going out.  Even going out and standing in a club doing NOTHING is better than reading 10 books.

Look at how many books I bought.  I think I just killed the Amazon rain forest with all this paper.  Stop reading!  It wont help!

You want to become an approach machine as soon as possible so you can start seeing enough results to motivate you further.   As soon as you start getting numbers and make outs, the mentality of going out reverses from a painful experience to a fun one where you're anticipating something great to happen every night.

Sure techniques are important but people don't realize that learning anything requires good habits.  How are habits driven?  Unless you have amazing self discipline, your habits are largely driven by the people you associate and hang out with.  If you hang out with people who approach 20 sets a night, you are likely to approach 20 sets a night.  If you hang out with people who stand around and make excuses, you are likely to do the same.  Remember Mystery's 3 second rule for approaching?  Well, I got a one second rule!

Here are the Services I Provide:

  • Unlimited Demo Requests - Seeing is believing.  If you have limiting beliefs, you'll be mind blown.
    • You name it, I'll do it. (Blacks / Asians / Hispanic / White / Blonde /  Brunette / Patio Sets / Streets Sets / Dance Floor Sets /  Using Any Opener)
    • Makeouts / Lock-Ins / Isolations / Banter / Flirting
    • Getting Blown Out For Fun (If you fear rejections, I will get blown out harder than anything you will ever witness in your life and show you its not a big deal)
  • State Pump, Push You Into Set - If you're a newbie, you probably love standing around and that's a big no no.
  • Entertain and Distract Her Friends
  • Body Guard - Guys won't mess with you when I am around; yeah I'm big and buff.
  • Remind You of Next Steps While In Set - When you're doing the same thing and the girl is getting bored, I will come and whisper in your ear.
  • Introduce You To My Friends in Venues - My friends are not only good with women, they also have amazing skillsets or professions including promoters, dance instructors, other PUA coaches, dating site gurus, etc etc)
  • Debrief After - Eat, answer any questions you have, identify your sticking points, shoot the shit because talking to girls isn't serious business.

Here are the Following Sticking Points I Can Help You With:

  • Approach anxiety
  • Being Unaffected by Rejections
  • Body Language / Posture
  • Fashion
  • False Ejecting (leaving the set too early at the first sign of resistance)
  • Finding Venues (Socal / Vegas)
  • Running Out of Thing to Say
  • Self Amusement
  • Kino
  • Getting Numbers
  • Locking In
  • Isolation
  • Qualification
  • Pull / Logistics
Results / Testimonials
Here are some videos of students making amazing progress during bootcamp.  This is only a small subset of what happens on a near weekly basis.

Two students work a 2 set.  One student pulls another girl back to the condo.

Indian student's first time doing day game ever.  Gets significantly better within 2.5 hours of day game infield.

Asian student who is in his mid 40's is still getting results from girls half his age.

Student gets his first insta-date reference experience during Vegas infield. Ends up getting the lay on Saturday at Marquee Nightclub.

Student has trained with me since August, 2013.  Now has double digit lays.

Initially, what was a 30 second blowout after having the set taken over by other guys, under my guidance, the student is able to re-engage the girl and eventually pulling her out of the club.

Still not convinced?  Please visit the results / testimonial page.  Obviously I can not guarantee you a lay on a bootcamp because everyone comes with different starting skills.   For all you scientists, engineers, statisticians, from a overall grand mean point of view, in over 50% of the bootcamp weekends, one of the student pulls a girl outside of the venue.  Also, 60% of the students have gotten laid within 2 months from taking a bootcamp.  I have a private Facebook page in which other students can confirm.

The training application is for serious enquirers only.  Since I put in a lot of effort on quality training, I only want quality students.  This does not apply to your current skill level but your work ethics.  If you're not expecting to go out a minimum of 2 nights per week or 8 nights a month then it is pointless to get training.  If you're the type of person who is constantly hanging out with your friends, or celebrating birthday parties, or setting up your day 2's on Fridays and Saturdays instead of dedicating to cold approach doing 15 - 20 sets per night, you are not ready for a coaching.  I can only fit 12 people per month on my schedule so I want to pick the ones that really want to change.

As with success with anything.  Do your homework.  Know the timing and dates you want to get training (check my availability).  Make sure you have cleared with your boss if you have odd work schedules.  Check the costs of flights, hotels, etc.  Here is a rough cost guideline for a Friday - Sunday bootcamp (2 nights).  If you have insufficient funds, create an Excel spreadsheet and figure out how much you need to save per month before taking the training.

Flight:  Check airline
Hotel:  Plan for $200
Club Cover:  Plan for $110 (may be cheaper)
Food: At least 50$

Of course Vegas has accommodations from the thrifty to the extremely wealthy.  If you want to spend additional money, that is completely up to you.

Continuous Training
Some people may require more than one iteration of training.  The following options allow you to take training one weekend per month or one weekend every other month.  The benefit of long term coaching is more consistency and accountability.  This minimizes reversion after taking your first infield.  Since there are less paper work on my end, students in long term training will receive 10% off.  The minimum commitment for continuous training is 3 infields.  This is 3 months for monthly training, and 6 months for every other month training.

  1. I am definitely interested in booking. Shoot me am email when you get a chance. my email is Thanks

  2. where's the location?Is this for guys in SD area?
    How do you manage students comes from LA and SD one time??

    What's the students and instructor ratio do you expect??

  3. Hi, I currently have all of my students in Los Angeles. The San Diego students will need to drive up to LA for the training. Estimated driving time is about 1.5 hours via the I-5.

    In terms of ratio, I keep it no more than 4 students. If I get more students, I will open up more day game hours and potentially Sunday night as well.

  4. Dude, you are the guy who try to send your students in to jack my set last weekend hahaha.. Too many PUAs in SoCal. Help out your asian brother next time.

  5. My bad! No hard feelings. Its just game! Next time you see me, introduce yourself.

  6. Hi man. I just came across your youtube channel, awesome work you're doing bro. So to clarify you will coach guys in Vegas?

    1. Yes. I go to Vegas once a month. Most of the guys come from LA so the training includes transportation and hotel. If you live in Vegas, I will give you a 100$ discount.

      For any other questions, go ahead and fill out this form.

  7. Hi Squattincassanova,

    I've submitted an application. I'd really appreciate if you could reply ASAP whether you are available for the dates I promised since my schedule is really cramped. Thank you so much and keep up the good work.


  8. Damn man, too bad you aren't in nyc

  9. fuck man. I'm in england. don't think you'll ever go international :/

  10. SquattinCassanova,

    I have been sarging for about one year now and my results are not consistent. Will you ever make a trip to Washington DC? Hopefully I do not have school(college) at the time and can do sets all day with you. I really want to improve in all areas of my life. I don't want to be that chode Asian guy at home.

    Sincerely ,
    Anonymous Guy

    1. Its probably much cheaper to fly to Vegas and get training here than it is to book me a flight to DC. If I am paid for my time and flight, I will certainly do it. However there are cheaper and better options. I been to DC, not exactly a great place to even practice pickup.

  11. I second the DC thing. We have no PUA coaches here. And the best guys I know are still on the weak side of intermediate.

    1. See the response I wrote to the previous commenter.

  12. Do you know any material that will help me study before your courses?

    1. Once you sign up for training, I send you a link to a folder with all the stuff you need before the infield.

    2. Would you sell me your folder without booking training? I live in NY...
      Your youtube vids are second to none BTW thanks for all your hard work.

  13. What do you charge for a weekend?

  14. how come no pricing for bootcamp??

    1. Because everyone wants different conditions, durations, cities, 1on1 vs 3on1 etc, so its hard to make one price for all.

    2. Greetings Sir,

      Recently discovered your youtube channel which in turn brought me here. I noticed your Oct 13 response to a inquiry about traveling to D.C. Here is a quote of a portion of your response.

      "I been to DC, not exactly a great place to even practice pickup."

      I happen to reside in the D.C. area and have heard similar sentiments expressed from out-of-towners. Is this because of the more stuck-up, uptight vibes this area exudes as opposed to places out west?

  15. lol

    didnt finish reading but the companies are as follows. Adam lyons, RSD - knew tyler was a piece of shit coah, JT tran - nice guy but wall flowering in real life LOL

    what about love systems. they dont focus so much on inner game bs, more outer game and results

  16. When will you come to Melbourne Australia?

  17. Hey man, I used to be on Team Liquid a long time ago and some of your posts in that thread set me on the path that I've been following since. I recognise that picture second from the top left.

    Saw a reference to you somewhere else and though "is that guy still around?" Massive blast from the past. Impressed by how far you've come. I wanted to email you to say hi but I can't find an email link or contact form anywhere.


  18. How much experience should we have before bootcamp?

  19. Hey man i was going to take the RSD Vegas immersion in April 2015 for 2 months. Do you think i could get a similar experience for less money with anything you offer?

    1. My training is more feedback oriented and my ratio is 1:3 max. All the students wear a wireless microphone and they get immediate post set feedback (I can hear them) and also infield footages of themselves. You will have to find your own housing or hotel for the time being.
