The Don Bootcamp - Washington, DC (With Braddock, Big Business, Helicase)
I just finished a bootcamp with The Don, Braddock, Big Business, Helicase and Puzzler. All of these guys were amazing and I hope I can do all of them justice in this review. It was a large class so all of the instructors were brought in to keep the student\instructor ratio down to a minimum.
Each day in the classroom, I wrote furiously to keep up with all of the great information they provided. In addition to the standard class material they each talked about real world experiences that helped put everything into perspective and showed how the material applied.
Every question was answered with ease with real world examples on why or why not something should be done a certain way. Each of them have lived this and they've all been where most of us are today so they can relate. That, and seeing their success first hand helps to know that this can be done.
Since there were so many instructors and we only went out 2 nights, I did not get a chance to work closely with all of them. I probably worked with Big Business the most, then Puzzler and then Braddock. Each night we had an agenda or a clear set of goals to reach based on that day's instructions.
Big Business is an amazing guy to see in action. He took me and a couple other guys the first night to have us open sets. The first set he wanted me to open was a mixed 5 set at the bar. He said, "See that girl at the bar in the pink sweater? Go open her." I hesitate because now that the pressure is on, I'm trying to recall my opener and everything I was supposed to do. I walked over to the bar....and chicken out. I walk back to Big Business and he asked, "What happened?" I said, "Well, she's leading the conversation with the group." He said, "Here, watch" and walks over to the bar, leans against it like he's checking his phone for messages, bumps her arm and says something to her. She stops talking and looks over. Instead of being irritated for being interrupted he has her and her girlfriend on the other side laughing within seconds. He then excused himself and walked back. It was that easy.
The next set he had me open was a two-set. I opened this one and talked to both girls. In fact, my opener intrigued them enough that they called a third girlfriend over. So I'm talking to these girls for several minutes (forgetting a few things on my agenda in the process, of course) when Big Business comes in to wing me. I'm sure he was just surprised to see me in the set for so long and wanted to know what was going on. I introduced him, identified the target and the obstacle and he went to town. He pulled the obstacle aside and had her laughing within seconds. The target turned to interrupt him at one point and he "shushed" her without breaking stride. The look on her face was hilarious. I don't think that had ever happened to her in her life! She loved it though. After a few minutes he said his goodbyes and walked away. The obstacle watched him go and said without taking her eyes off of him, "Who was that guy? Was he a friend of yours? He's funny!" It reminded of the old Lone Ranger episodes after the Lone Ranger swoops in to save the day and the women breathlessly ask "Who was that masked man???" as he rides away.
I left the set after a few more minutes and walked back to him. He immediately congratulated me for staying in the set for so long. He said he was really impressed. He immediately asked what I thought I did right, what I thought I did wrong and what I thought I could have done better. He then told me his observations, which were mostly positive and gave suggestions for the next one.
The third set he had me go into was one that had been opened by another student. The student was talking to a two-set and so he wanted me to wing him. So I went in and the student wasn't expecting me and was a little surprised. He failed to identify the target & obstacle and so I was left standing there. That's when the funniest thing happened. If you think of an "L", the student was standing at the bottom right, one girl was at the bottom left and the 2nd girl was at the top left. I was standing under the "L" talking. That's when Big Business noticed I was out of position, swooped in and physically moved me from where I was standing, around the one girl to facing the 2nd girl at the top left. The funny thing is, it barely registered with her. She just kind of blinked and kept on talking to me like nothing happened. It was hilarious!!!
The second night I was having major approach anxiety for some reason. Big Business, Puzzler, Braddock and The Don all helped and I spent most of my time one-on-one with Puzzler and Big Business. Big Business talked to me, realized I was having a tough time of it and said, "Why don't you just walk around the club and I'll follow. If you see any sets you want to try then open them. I'll hang back for a few minutes and then come in and wing you." That alone took the pressure off and I started opening sets. After each one he would pull me aside and ask how I thought I did and congratulate me and offer suggestions where needed. He was a HUGE help.
On the 2nd night I also got to see him interact with a girl he had met the first night. That alone was an eye opener. He talked so much BS that I don't think she knew which way was up but she was eating it up! He introduced me as a friend of his and she asked how we met. He immediately concocted a story about how we were "long lost brothers from a different mother." She knew it was BS but she loved it. She didn't really care because she was having such a great time. He was hilarious! The goal is to keep the girl laughing and entertained. I saw how it worked first hand. It's great! ...or as Big Business would say, "It's money!"
If you want to work with someone that knows how to peacock then Puzzler's your man. With his white jacket and fancy/shiny boots he had girls coming up and opening him! He's been doing this for a few years now and definitely knows his stuff. He helped me out a lot the first and second night and helped me with some of my sticking points on the opener and transition. He also went around with me that second night when I had my approach anxiety and encouraged me to open sets and offered great feedback each time. He’s always full of great advice.
Braddock is pretty amazing himself. You can tell this guy is at the top of his game by how quickly he thinks on his feet and all of the great advice. The first day he led a lot of the class and provided great advice and real world experience. The first night he helped me work through my opener and the second night he completely changed it on the fly to something a little more high energy after he and The Don realized my approach anxiety. He worked through it and came up with a completely new opener along with the responses within a few seconds. He loves role playing scenarios and is great at the text message game.
The Don led the class and for good reason. You can tell he's been doing this a long time and knows this stuff inside and out. I didn't work with him a lot in the field but he was always there with advice if I needed it. He has a great presence that even the women sensed. They were approaching him the first night and an HB10 even picked him up the 2nd night on his way out of the club.
I probably worked with Helicase the least but I did see him in action with a two set the 2nd night. He had talked to them earlier in the evening and they came back to engage him in conversation. Again, as with all of the instructors, he is full of great advice and experience to relate to us.
All in all the bootcamp was a great experience and I would do it again with all of these instructors in a heartbeat. I learned a ton and I'm still processing a lot and I know I need to practice if I hope to reach anywhere near their level.
I definitely give it two thumbs up…..or as Big Business would say, It's money!
Thanks for the props bro! You have made a lot of progress and its only a matter of getting out there and working on it. When girls hear that you are a Karate instructor they are going to be all over you! Keep it up bro! E-mail me if you have something you want to discuss.
I always try to be one of the best dressed in the club. I got my fashion sense from Sinn and TenMagnet. It took me tons of time trying on clothes in order to find something that really works. My shoes are my newest addition.
Sinn says that if he doesn't get at least five compliments on something he has recently bought within a couple of weeks, he'll throw it out.
This was my first bc working with Big Business and he knows his stuff. I was very impressed. Those New York guys sure know how to game.
Thanks, man... Yeah DC is one of my favorite cities for this stuff. The girls are hot, nice and the guys have crap game. It's pretty easy to dominate there.
Doing another one in late April.
DC Bootcamp 2.8-2.10 The Don: How Much is Your Life Worth? How much is your life worth? What would you pay to live a great life from this day forward?
How much would you pay to live just one incredible year? What price would you put on 1 year and living it to the fullest? Seriously. What is living a fantastic life, for just one year, worth to you?
I used to think that the bootcamp was a joke. These guys can’t understand the material inside this book, so that is why they need to take a bc? I am not like that, I am better then them.
I told myself that for the money that this bootcamp will cost me, I will study hard and develop myself without the bootcamp. That I will be great without it. The savings I will keep will be my reward for developing myself on my own. Its kinda funny when you think about yourself in hindsight and where your decisions have led you. Well, I got what I paid for. That is where I get the “what is living one awesome year worth to you?” Because after taking this bootcamp, and what I could have had, I think I have already paid dearly, more than the fee of the bc. Maybe going through another shitty year made this boot camp that much more worthwhile, but I don’t know, I think I could have lived without that shitty year.
This is a science and the scientific method. The instructors say this all the time, but I think we forget what a science is. The scientific method consists of proposing a hypothesis to explain a phenomenon. Tests are then designed to test this hypothesis. This test must be measurable and anyone must be able to reproduce it. Any freakin one! Is that a fair definition of the scientific method? This method is A SCIENCE!
Braddock gave me a real good idea about this science when he said, “Imagine that you to talk with 20 hot women. Of those, 19 will be real bitches that will give you the worst crap and try their best to make you feel bad. The very last one will sleep with you, guaranteed.” How would you act towards them 19 bitches? Knowing that success is guaranteed, how would you act? That brings me back to the word… SCIENCE!
On to my review: It changed my life. It will change yours.
You learn how to fish. What is the difference with a hot babe and you? She has options and she has standards. You learn how to have both. How awesome is that? Learning how to have hb's as options and the ones that dont meet your standards you reject. Before this bc, I was like Gollum in Lord of the Rings. "Precciooousssss!!!" Over one freakin girl. Imagine if there were 100 rings, a 1000, 1000000. Guess what? There are more then 2 billion chicks in this world and if you factor 20% being 7 and up, you got a lot of options.
Oh how great it is to be a fisherman!
This is the new technology. They go over things that you have not even thought of. Share with you routines, techniques and inner game that will blow you away. What you know and what brought you to this post is the old technology. David D, VAH, the techniques taught in “The Game,” all old technology! Think Nintendo Wii and PS3 vs Atari. And as you know, Atari is obsolete.
Each of the instructors brought something to the table. They all had different styles and strengths that played well with each other.
Incredible instructor. He helped push me into a few sets and gave me instant feedback on what I did incorrectly and how to improve. We also went over identity (which I think is very important) in day 3 and his advice was crucial to my game. He answered every question that I had with relevance to my situation. The Don has this way of motivating you. You know that if he says that it’ll work, it’ll work. Awesome instructor of the “model,” and proves it to you in the field. He was grabbing a beer from the bar, watching us in the field and a HB9 just opens HIM up. I was like "wow, wtf? That has never happened to me before!"
This guy is awesome. He has the fantastic ability to give metaphors and analogies that make perfect sense and helped me understand difficult concepts. I remember one all girl 5-set that I approached on the first night. I did some random crap and he jumps right in and improv’s to join the group. This guy is really quick on his feet and I know that he would be a guy you could count on to wing perfectly for you. His game is spot on, he knows his stuff inside and out and great instructor of the model.
Top notch. I have lots of respect for this guy. He really wants you to succeed. He cares about your success. Time and time again he has got your back with great advice of the game, fashion and shows you how to do everything right. I owe this guy lots for how he has helped me. Women were just opening him up from what he was wearing! If you ever need advice on fashion this is the man!
This guy was so funny. He watched me open a few sets and gave me useful advice on my game. I watched him in set and my jaw dropped with some of the things he was getting away with! He proved to me that you can be yourself and still have tight game. You can be anyone and do anything as long as you follow the rules of the model.
He gave me tons of useful advice and answered a lot of questions I had on theories with women. He and I went into a set and he winged the one chick while I talked to the other. It was great practice on winging and he showed me how to do it.
