Very simple, easy to use effective content great communication of concepts and constructive feedback. An excellent bootcamp. From maintaining tension; maintaining conversation; escalating and progressing quickly. I know how I need to be constantly leading and being a few steps ahead of where you want to go.

- Maintaining frame through encounters
- Calibrating delivery to target
- Review of 5 steps and associated techniques.

Approaching Women No Problem, and I need a few more break the ice lines. After a few more break the ice lines…
I learned how to be more cool way to stand, approach better, speak better, just an overall better idea, how to project and make myself more attractive. All good but need to be more practiced and have to have more backup. Using humor more and learning to cold read more.
I went through previous days and nights, what I did right and wrong. Now, I got more comfortable in my approaches. And I wrote down a more detailed structure of program to practice. Ways to improve my game, etc…
FAVORITE BOOTCAMP SUCCESS STORY #7
I now have a solid plan to do when I want to approach women. I am surprised how easy and simple the information is to use and yet how affective it is. Instructors made the information very easy to understand and made me feel like I had support whenever I made mistakes.
I learned a new opener that I can use. I gained experience approaching a variety of different [girls]. Some with moms, guys, and scary girls. I learnt when to be cocky/funny, and when not to.
The program was awesome. It’s given me the system to approach women anywhere, anytime with confidence.
FAVORITE BOOTCAMP SUCCESS STORY #8
I learned about reference points and their importance. The structure of the bootcamp allowed me to learn techniques from the instructors then immediately apply them to meeting women and get immediate feedback. This real-world value beats reading/listening to a bunch of ebooks and programs but not being able to “get” how it really works in the real world. Excellent for boosting confidence in meeting women. Tim pinpointed the weaknesses in my body language/voice tonality, and taught how to lead with powerful nonverbal communication.
Learned about fashion and style, and the instructors helped me pick good clothes and shoes. Then in the evening I learned about isolation and escalation, and practiced in the field. The instructors gave valuable observations and feedback in the field. Tim helped me pick some really cool clothes and shoes, and taught me isolation and escalation.
Tim helped me pick more cool clothes, then took me to a Sydney Lair meeting where he gave a talk on isolation and escalation. I learned many subtle but important points such as the importance of having the stronger frame. At night we had field practice, which ended with extracting 2 girls back to the penthouse with Tim’s help.”

I learned about the 3 types of rapport, opening [girls]. Body language and how it relates to what women see and what we see. The structure at the seminar I thought was excellent (like it will work for every one most of the time). Tim definitely knows the material well and explains it in a way I understand completely. I learned many things regarding dating and personal development well set out material and structures. Keep up the good work.
FAVORITE BOOTCAMP SUCCESS STORY #10
I was very impressed. It’s been a paradigm shifting experience. My first thought on meeting Tim was “what can this kid teach me?”. An hour later, I stood in awe, as he “flamed” a dude out of “mixed [groups]”. The guys is a machine and an inspirational thinker and a very clear educator. Thoroughly enjoyable and enlightening.Excellent: I’m just shooting hoops, baby!
Day 2 left me struggling for a hold on the moment at times. I realized how much more there was to learn and how much work I had to do internally. I also realized I’d talked to more women in 48 hours (I’ve approached strangers) than I had in the previous six months. The most gratify experience was seeing the growth in confidence in another student, D. He was extremely brave considering the cultural conflict.
I guess I recognize this course is not a magic bullet, it won’t transform a man into Brad Pitt – but it does alters your mindset – you realize it’s a game and act accordingly. The biggest thrill for me was seeing a socially awkward guy like the student – D– go from gump to gunslingers, his self confidence had grown exponentially in three days.
FAVORITE BOOTCAMP SUCCESS STORY #11
My dating life in the last year has been better than the rest of my life put together! After the bootcamp, I would go out every weekend to the mall or bookstore or whatever and just practice what you taught me. I slowly got better and better at carrying a conversation. Then one day my cousin invites me to this house party, telling me there’s going to be plenty of hot babes. We get to the house and there are a lot of girls, but most of them were just OK looking. Then I spot this one chick that’s a solid 9, easily the hottest chick there. She gets hit on by every guy in the house, but mostly sticks with her little clique of friends.
I got in using the group techniques you taught. I was a little scared at first because her guy friends looked like Mexican gangsters. At first I directed my attention to the friends to keep her guard down, but once I finished my opener she jumped in with opinions about her experiences with roommates. The conversation flowed pretty naturally with the whole group for a while, then I started to focus more and more on the hot chick. Eventually, the rest of the group just left us alone and we talked exclusively to each other.
I came to find out she was Dominican and just moved to LA from NYC to start modeling for Armani. She came to the party with her cousins and their friends. She then told me what a relief it was to talk to a guy who actually had something to say and wasn’t just trying to get into her pants (ironic b ecause that was EXACTLY what I was trying to do!).
The best feeling I had was when I looked up and all the guys at the party that she blew off were looking at me. My cousin’s look was the best because he had always known me to be a chump when it came to women, now I’m going up and talking to models.
At the end of the night when it was time to go I tried something a little different. Instead of getting her number, I gave her mine and told her to call me sometime. I didn’t really think she would call then I started to beat myself up for not getting her number, but then about three weeks later, she calls! She pissed cause out of all the guys she’s met in LA, I’m the only one who isn’t weird. I tell her to come over and she does. I don’t do anything fancy, we just sat out in my back yard and talked. Again the conversation went pretty naturally for a good long time. At one point I go back inside to get a drink and she follows me in. When I turn around to ask what she wanted, she came right up to me and just starts kissing me. We made out for a good while, then made our way to the bedroom.
You can figure out what happened from there.
We’ve been together since then and its been great! The best is when everyone who knows me asks “What the hell is a girl like that doing with a guy like you?” I think the key for me was when I heard Tyler say once that the art of pick-up was the art of acting normal. The frame I adopted was to just act normal, but keep the structure you guys taught me in mind.
FAVORITE BOOTCAMP SUCCESS STORY #12
My experience with RSD was FANTASTIC! There was TONS of material, and it was presented in a very clear and organized manner. Geoff is a fantastic guy who clearly has the skills and practices what he preaches, and also clearly cares about seeing students do well. Indeed, EVERYONE there was extremely helpful and wanted to see the students get better.
We also heard a bit from one of their interns, an Asian kid, kind of shy, for whom English is a second language, so he’s fighting a big uphill battle. He turned out to be a REALLY cool guy and it was very inspirational to see him getting out there, overcoming fears, and getting into [groups] and such.
My notes for days 2 and 3 are all together, but on those days we talked more about value and what makes women attracted. A bit more on frame control, body language, tonality, tempo, etc. We talked about the three kinds of rapport, humor, qualifying, spontaneity & congruence, buyer’s remorse, IOI’s [indications of interest], ways to get to the hook point, a bit on group theory, push-pull, and stories.
These are not just guys out to make a buck and who don’t give a shit about their students. These are guys who genuinely like to see their students improve. I think some of the people who have gone to their bootcamps before wanted to be “buddies” with the instructors, and were more intent on that than on getting pussy.
Tyler wanted to push my limits to show me just what kind of stuff you get away with. He would have me go up to girls and say, “Hey, you’re cute. I wanna have a crush on you. What’s your name? Oh, OK [name of hot babe]. Here, let me give you a noogie!”RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEIR BOYFRIENDS! I had one girl just giggling like a little schoolgirl and eating out of my hand. He had me walk up to a cute blonde chick who was being gamed by a HUGE guy, and I basically blew him out for as long as I kept talking to her. And so on, and so on…
This was just to sort of open my mind up and push my limits a bit. I got some good feedback from the instructors about needing to bust on women a bit more, etc. I did do one good [approach] on British girls, got a kiss from one of them as she left, and she told me her room number, said to give the hotel a call and ask for that room.

IMPROVEMENTS IN MY GAME:
- PROJECTION. When you open a [woman], or are just talking to people, being louder (naturally, without straining) makes you more dominant.
- POSITIVE FRAME. Tim could tell just from my body language what I was thinking before approach. I concentrated on my actions, eliminating the negative, defensive, actions, and focusing on the positive, proactive actions. Lesson learned: have FUN on your night out, and recalibrate.
- COOL. Your body language can still be laid-back cool, but your conversation has to be something else.
- KEEPING THE FRAME/PLOWING. In the opening/attraction stage of the game, it’s important to own the frame, to plow it open. To do it right, it helps to have a few things down: attraction material, non-needy BL [body language], booming projection. Another cool thing [Tim] did were those cool mini-take-away type things.
- AMOGing. The AMOGing stuff is SO awesome to watch. You can tell by watching an interaction how deep in or how alpha a guy is, and just by coming in and blowing him out by IGNORING him, your value jumps up so high.
- FUNNY STUFF. I learned the Leprecaun dance, the DRAGAWAY! SONG, and the power of inside jokes. Above all, the VALUE of having fun, being the coolest, funnest guys in the room. [Women] will open YOU if you have this down.
- QUALIFICATION. Tim had this $$$ qualification bit. It was a lot to do with body-language (very convincing and natural).
THE STORIES. Watching [Tim] in action was pretty cool. He would get AI’s [approach invitations] and IOI’s [indications of interest] wherever he went, because he had all the sub-communications down, was dressed cool, and was just chilling with friends. He could bust open a [group] in seconds, because he had all the little nuances down, but externally it came from a frame where he was just chilling out and having fun.
It was also interesting seeing the ‘darker’ side of pick-up. Like, what to do about a chick who’s into you, but you’re not into, afterwards. Honestly, I need a re-frame. It’s just fun. You had fun, they had fun. You can’t think too much about it, and I think you need to project this frame to the chick in order to manage her relationship expectations.
NOW. I’ve got the basics. Really I think it’s a matter of just chilling out, and having a good time, chatting to girls and calibrating at the end of the night. Repeat.
For those of you considering a seminar, workshop or bootcamp, there’s tremendous value in all three. Because this game is something you’ve probably never seen before, it’s almost impossible to envision it accurately. Like, I spent three months reading posts, stories and material, but I was still WAY off in how I pictured the game to be. If you’re not in the field, it’s like learning about American NFL by reading books, as opposed to watching or playing a real game.
If you’re out in the field, you’re already getting good feedback from your own social interactions, but going to RSD is like getting coaching from someone who has ALREADY gone through that long trial and error process and calibration. It’s the difference between say, learning golf by playing by yourself for two years, or getting coaching from a professional. In the end, you’ll need both to get really good.

At 20, Tim is an average-looking Melbourne boy who works in finance. Yet within an hour, I’m watching him do things I’ve never witnessed before.
FAVORITE BOOTCAMP SUCCESS STORY #15
Day 1 – My 1st Time in LA
Just a few of the guys that I met during my stay at Project Hollywood, some through sheer luck b/c they live in the LA area and others b/c they live in PH: Tyler, Geoff, Thomas Crown, Jlaix, Papa, David DeAngelo, Craig, Merovingian.
On Day 1, the program started off with Tyler and Geoff giving a lecture on their game structure, motivations for getting better – what our goals are, what we should do to make the most out of our bootcamp experience, his history as a PUA [pickup artist], etc.
Watching Tyler and Geoff working on several [girls] was really interesting and surprising to me. The whole time they look straight into a HB’s eyes while conversating with them, and they keep their hand gestures at a minimal. Their body language doesn’t display neediness at all. It’s relaxed, loose, and firmly on the ground. With a naked eye it seems as though they’re just some regular guys talking – not gaming – to these girls, when in fact they are gaming them hardcore.
Their verbal game is so tight that HBs [hot babes] typically KINO them first, and at high points in the interaction these guys subtly close the proximity between them and the HB. Eventually, as their proximity between each other lessens and as the girls Buying Temperature skyrockets and she’s KINOing him and laughing at all of his jokes she finds herself sexually attracted to him like no other.
As for me and the other bootcamp student, we learned a lot by observing their game, and by approaching so many [women] that night in the night club. I felt broke down several limiting beliefs that I used to have: that of being very young and not being able to PU women in their mid-20s and of PUing 9s and 10s in the LA nightclub scene. I approached one LA 10, and I was surprised at how they were attracted to me b/c I was so calm and composed while interacting w/ them. Me and the other bootcamp student both #closed a girl that night.
While eating and sitting at our tables, I was pushed into walking up to other tables of girls and gaming them. I approached a 2 [girls] sitting down, and I felt real awkward b/c I never sarged in a restaurant/diner atmosphere before, but I ended up number-closing the better of the two girls.
FAVORITE BOOTCAMP SUCCESS STORY #16
I tell Todd that I’ve never done a cold approach, so could he please do few so I could see how it’s done. Within the first 5 minutes of him approaching, any skepticism or concern i had of Todd being my instructor was gone. He was a GREAT instructor. I did an approach. Thanks to 26 and Todd, I did 2 more fairly soon and no longer shook afterwards. By the end of the day I had done 8 approaches. Some singles, some walking and at least 1 sitting 2 [women].
Todd number closed 2 that I can remember from that day (one being a really hot 20-yr old blond), but ok, so I’m not paying $2000 bucks for Todd to number close, right? So what did I get out of that first day.
Ok…so the first night comes and i get to see 26 and Todd peacocked – picked up some tips from watching them in that aspect. I did 8 more approaches that night and by the end of the night had a list of routines and little “tidbits” that I saw them do.
One of the most amazing things that I saw was an AMOG [alpha male other guy] stopped Todd while we were looking for another [group of girls]. So the AMOG, trying to tool Todd says “Hey, my friend wants to meet you.” Within seconds he’s getting IOIs. He’s getting kino – this girl was REALLY into him. And he hadn’t actually DONE anything. He was just giving off the right vibe, and was peacocked, and was showing social proof. Just amazing!
Day 2 –
Did 11 daytime [approaches]. The anxiety was still there but DRAMATICALLY reduced from the previous day. Again 26 and Todd both pushed me – literally, at times – into [groups of women]. And they kept fixing things. When it was time for the student to try and get a phone number close, Twentysix wrote “PHONE NUMBER” on a yellow sticky and walked behind the girls and held it up to make sure the guy would see it. He number closed them!

DAY 1: Today, I got a basic overview of what was going to happen this weekend. Today was the evaluation. I was observed and the coaches figured out what I needed to improve in my game. I learned that I need to work on voice projection/tonality, my body position when approaching women, and frame control. I think that the instructors know what they are doing, and are very good at what they do. So far I think the material is excellent from what I’ve been told. I think I’m going to learn a lot this weekend. I think the structure is helpful. Being bombarded with material, and then going out and using it helps me to learn and understand it better than if I were to just read about it. Jeffy seems to really care about what he is doing. So far, he has provided excellent insight, and I can’t wait to find out what else he knows.
DAY 2: Today I learned more about using the game and the steps were covered in depth. I made little improvements in my body language…I don’t peck much anymore, but I need to get closer to the girls, and not face them head on directly. One of the concepts that I really liked and made a lot of sense was change her mood/not her mind; but I’ve got to learn how to change her mood without coming off as overly excited/needy. Another major point that I learned that I need way more improvement on is OWNING THE FRAME. I need to get more excellent. Jeffy is always watching and observing what I’m doing. He makes sure to let me know a couple of times and will correct me while in group.
DAY 3: This has been far the most beneficial program that I have ever taken. I am walking away from this program with a plan and things to work on to improve my game. I have seen many examples of things that I can make my own/or modify to make my own. Again, the instructors see to be really into what they are doing, and that being combined with their ability to get consistent results makes me want to work even harder to achieve that level of success. Jeffy is awesome. I learned so much from him. He is always helpful and always on me to constantly improve. I think he has helped me on my way to success. Mike J has a style that is very different. It was an example of someone who I could take bits and pieces from and use in my own game. I like Christophe’s calm demeanor. He was very assertive and made me feel like I had unlimted potential.

[A Letter to an RSD Instructor]
Without getting too sentimental, I’ve thought of your personality many times during my sarges [while picking up girls]. Sure, you got across the actual RSD material [during the New York Bootcamp], but what really stands out is the fearless way you acted like a man, when you were with women who were used to guys acting subserviently. I am sure your life experiences will grow exponentially, better and better.

The seminar with Papa was something that totally changed my life. I feel more confident. He is a genius pickup-artist and a good teacher. His strategies have given me new insights and I have a whole different world with women right now. I believe I have a whole different level of success with women now. I was in San Francisco and I would like to thank the instructors for helping me out. I could see that he wanted to really teach me and his caring came through his sincerity.

I learned to open without fear of the end. I can walk away from a girl without thinking badly of the outcome. The seminar structure is excellent. Geoff addressed image and was very supportive in uplifting support…Mike was very fast and answered all my questions…
Randy had a very positive attitude. He is very good at explaining what is taking place…Second night was better than the first night. I didn’t perceive the same difficulty as my classmaters. Thank you Papa for the story telling exercises. It helped me greatly on storytelling. I know what to look for.
I need to be pushed harder. Having Tyler along was awesome. He’s the smiling guy. I’m a natural smiler so I’d think I keyed in with him. Later that evening, I started to understand the dynamics of value levels and the techniques to work value levels…Even without something to say, I forced myself to talk. The material, physical connection, and closing was concise and simple.
OVERWHELMING – the first two days was very difficult for me to engage conversation. My goals for approaches were helpful to force me to use the same attract tactics while instructors were wings…Geoff was awesome. His personal debrief was exactly what I needed. Every evening, I got positive feedback…Randy was funny as hell. I didn’t question his opening anymore. He gave very good suggestions on what to say next after the opening.
