One Year in the Game

Yo yo!

So it has been a few weeks over a year that I have been in the Game.
Late Oct of 2006 I took my TMM Bootcamp, and obviously it changed my life.
I remember it vividly.

It is all laid out in my post "MY STORY"

At my BC I had Sinn, Tenmagnet, and Captain Jack.
Little did I know how much those three would come to influence my life.

after the BC in Scottsdale, AZ I went back to DFW.
I drove, for those of you who don't know the story.
I did it straight which really isn't that bad, but i had no money and had to get back to work.

I remember how elated I was afterwards, which is one of the reasons why I make it such a point to stay in contact with all the students I have taught.
If I can change someone's life as much as those guy's changed mine I would die a happy man.
And anyone who has worked with me, I hope that shows.

But how I really learned that was after my BC I came to know the Dallas scene, as far as PU goes.
I remember my first night out, I ran into Captain Jack. Actually I went to a place he recommended to me at BC.
The guy was a god at our BC and he talked to me and told me to open a few set, gave me feedback, and it was there that I realized at how nice some of these guys were.

So I kept at it.
I must say that if it weren't for Tribulus I would probably be out of it.
He also lived in DFW and took a TMM BC. He went out a lot.
For 3 months, he and I hit the streets pretty hardcore.

We wrecked a lot of rooms to say the least.

Then I met Kino Master. He was great beause he always encouraged me. His advice was always really spot on and I always followed it.

After about 4 or 5 months Captain Jack hit me up.
I had gotten about a lay a month and he told me to come out with him.
We really didn't do much.
At this time my game was starting to internalize and I more or less wanted to pick his brain.
I mean the guy is unbelievably good.
I watch some PUAs and think to myself, 'I can pull that off...' but with CJ, he never ceases to amaze me.
I honestly think I can never catch him.

He may take it easy for a few months, but when he is back on, it is disturbing as to how good the guy is.

But I went out with CJ about 4 nights in a row. That alone changed my game completely.
I watched him, asked him a few questions and then tried it.

It was fucking amazing.

CJ told Sinn about me, and when Sinn called for me to help at a BC I went for it.
There was one days notice.
I got on a plane and went to Vegas.

It was a really awesome BC.
I finally got to see Sinn on a different level. When he taught me again, he was like a god. And in all honesty he is one of, if not thee, best PUAs in the world.
But this time I got to go and work for him.
I really got to see the unbelievable limitlessness to his genius. I have met many academics and it would be safe to say that Sinn is one of the smartest people I know.
I got to pick up on more advanced stuff he was doing.
And then my game started to explode.

It was then BC after BC with me, I really enjoyed working with the students and they enjoyed me.
So Sinn brought me back more and more.

But then Sinn moved to Dallas.
It was then Sinn and Captain Jack who I had at my door step. this was really amazing because just watching those two you can get good.
Just reading their blogs you can get good.
The more I get out there and meet other people who teach this stuff, the more I realize how fortunate I was to have those guys around me.

At first I just thought that this was how other PUAs were when they got good, but the constant flow of evolution to their game is really unmatched.

And I have met a ton of PUAs.

Shortly after that I met Trance who I love winging with, Future who i also love winging with and working for, and a whole bunch of other dudes.

In fact it was at a BC that Tenmagnet, Trance and myself worked, was where I met Braddock. He was a student, and we were like...why it this guy taking this????
And what do you know a few months later he's coaching, then he's an Instructor!

But it wasn't till I worked a BC in LA that I realized how much I loved doing this stuff.
I got to work with a bunch of students and this time I really bonded to them.
There were 12 there and I stay in contact with just about all of them.
But it was the first time, where multiple student came to me with really challenging and diverse backgrounds and this time, I came out of there with a feeling that I changed their lives.
And it was after that, where I decided that I was going to give this thing my full effort.

You see, one of the things about me and what makes me good at teaching is that I love working with people. I always have.
And again, anyone who has worked with me has seen this.

To really give someone your all, and to pass on all the knowledge and application you know is how I teach. And to me, when you see someone actually be the person they wanted to be, there is an irreplaceable joy that make working at this stuff worth it.

Now aside form all that I like psychology, sociology and fucking. But what I have noticed, in people coming for help in terms of PU, it is mostly guys, who just want to live the life they feel they deserve.

In any case, guys always ask me how I was able to get good so fast.
And to that I say i am still learning, but I had a lot of help, and I have a passion for it.

I think by now, everybody knows I answer all my email
so hit me up. Also if you want me to come do a Lair talk anywhere let me know!

I am doing a bunch of Lair talks soon.
One in Austin next week, and in Boston in a few weeks.

Also Chicago is coming up somewhere too.

Sinn and I will be in my home state Hawaii right before Xmas.
This Boot Camp is going to be good.
Come hang loose with us there and sign UP!

It will be an amazing time!

Speaking as one of the ones that was coached by El Topo only 5 months after he did his BC, I can vouch for the fact that he cares about anybody that cares about game. For those of you that don't know ET, he's a stand-up guy of the highest calibre. Talk to him for more than five minutes and you'll know what I mean. He's sincere and authentic, which is rare these days. If anyone gets a chance to work with ET, go for it. And no, I didn't get anything for writing this. He's just that kind of guy and I felt like returning the favor, which is a huge understatement. I'd have quit by now if it hadn't been for him. El Topo... thanks bro. And that's from the bottom of my heart. Love ya, man.
