Well just got back from Miami. It's funny, because each year around the second week we're running those alumni programs, I start to think, "Oh, I just live here now... right?" Then the sadness comes when I realize, no, it's just a magical moment in time, and this too must end. So yup back to cold ass San Francisco. Here's where I'll be the next few months:

March 8-10: San Francisco
March 15-17: Los Angeles (w/ Alexander)
March 21-23: San Francisco
March 28-30: Los Angeles
April 4-6: Las Vegas (w/ Tyler)
April 12-14: Vancouver (w/ Alexander)
April 19-21: Calgary (w/ Alexander)
April 26-28: San Francisco
May 3-5: Montreal (w/ Alexander)
May 10-12: Toronto (w/ Alexander)
May 17-19: San Francisco
May 23-25: Dallas
May 31-June 2: Austin
June 6-8: Las Vegas

RSD OFFICE (toll free): +1 (888) 546 7286

Note that I've got a bunch of Canadian dates on the schedule with Alexander in April and May. It's pretty far off now, but there are still plenty of spots available for those bootcamps, which always prove to epic... Alex and I have a long history of teaching together and have our combined bootcamp dialed to a science. If you're even slightly interested in this, now is the time to start thinking about it and possibly budgeting for it, as it's a couple months off yet. Love me some fucking Canada eh.... really hope there's enough interest this time around so I can spend some time with you fine folk.

Note too, that I enjoyed my time in Texas so much that I have decided to return to the Lone Star State in early summer. Yippie kay yay motherfuckers!

This week, I've got a final video from Miami, shot along the scenic Espanola Way just off Washington. The previous night we'd gone to Story which is the new hot shit in South Beach, and it was one of the best clubs I've ever been to in my life. This article's thumbnail on the main page is from that night and if you look at my face, it looks I'm on some roller coaster with Julien and this is the photo that they take as you plunge down the final hill or whatever. 

On the debrief, I showed this picture to one of my students as a way to illustrate how we are PROCESS oriented as opposed to RESULTS oriented. "You think that the instructors are somehow 'cut from a different cloth' but nothing could be further from the truth. Much like yourself, I used to feel fear when I'd go to a club like this.... just walking up to the entrance and hearing the music coming from inside, my heart would start pounding and I would get extremely anxious. Over time however, I learned to love that environment. Tonight, was like one of my top ten nights ever... like look at this picture" as I showed them on my iphone... "Look at my fucking face... it looks like I'm at Disneyland, on Space Mountain." I literally remember thinking that to myself in the club... "it's like Disneyland when you were a kid... except there's also boobs and pussy available." lolol running around, ripping girls in, making out, partying hard. Sure, I didn't get laid (thanks mainly to bootcamp responsibilities, but hey that's life), but regardless I was loving the process itself, and that is the point. 

The sex is almost just the icing on the cake to us.

The point was this... I was telling the student that process is what to focus on above all... however, I personally wasn't able to enjoy that process at the beginning. I had to make some fundamental changes to my identity before I began to feel at home in the hectic environment of the top clubs. That's what I address in this video today. BOOM:



Little RSD:Miami intro there. I
 should have made a quippy remark at the end, then put on sunglasses like Lt. Horatio Caine as portrayed by David Caruso in CSI Miami, but hey. I didn't. So sue me. 

Anyways, time to get to work here back home. Gotta do my taxes, complete the rebranding of the van, and finish this damn online dating program. Lots to do, lots to do. But anyway, I'll be back soon enough with some more absudity for that ass.

Till then, take care of yourselves... and each other.

Everyone should listen to what he says at 8:25 over and over and over again. See, this in itself, is not a definition - its a rhythm ;)

Nice work, chief.

Amazing video, everything about it was dope.  The intro was killer, the spot was perfect and the content might be the best short video I've seen on here. With that said,  the quality of all the articles by every instructor has been crazy lately.  I would really like to see a sequel to the Jeffy Show though, I thihk you've gotten way better at explaining your perspective. Any plans?

 Golden.  I like how you remind us not to do just pick-up, but to get a job and start a hobby we are interested in.  Go out there and do it!  This has taken longer for me, but I am glad I have started now than never starting at all.

Like how you've been hammering fundamentals in bitesize segments, rather than 1 hr meandering esoteric rants about who-the-fuck-knows-what... ;)

yes been going out more often and started to play basketball seriously again. i know this community of knowledge is based on in-field pick-up. But having stuff outside of pickup and presenting yourself in a nice way (don't need to be good-looking, but do try to look good) can really help us get better results.

What is going on? Since yesterday I haven't been able to see the videos in any of the instructors' blogs. I even downloaded Internet Explorer but the videos keep hiding still. I do not understand.

I nerded out and took notes the third time watching/listening to this video. So much more powerful when I focused and took notes. It really is that internal shift that resonates outwardly as you gain the ref experience.

 Trust me Kash, this is a necessary evil. The van in its present form was attracting too much of the wrong attention.

It will respawn and live on, forever!
