  1. Before getting into the actual review itself, I’ll share some background information about myself. Up until I started the program, I had known about the game for FIVE YEARS but had made very little progress in actual pickup ability. My lack of sexual experience was EMBARASSING for someone of my age, especially someone whose been in the game for that long. Despite having been approaching on/off for a few years (mostly in the form of sarging at the mall and going to college parties) and doing what I thought at the time was “working on my game”, I had made very very little improvement in my actual pickup ability. Still got approach anxiety, still totally unable to approach difficult sets, still ejected early or got blown out basically every time, basically got nowhere in any of my sets. I considered it a GREAT night if I was able to go out and get a flakey phone number.

    Anyways, onto the program. I signed up for Long Term Coaching Program D, which is his most inexpensive program (I’m a poor college student). It basically consists of two monthly hour-long one on one skype conferences, monthly informational conference calls, unlimited email/text support, homework assignments, discounts, and some other bonuses. But the heart of the program lies in the skype conferences, so let’s talk about those.

    On the very first skype conference, Fuji finds out all the necessary preliminary information about you. Questions about relationship history, sexual experience, etc. Goes through your facebook to get a look at your lifestyle/fashion sense, runs you through a few drills to find out your level of social skills, and a whole bunch of other stuff just to be able to find out what he’s working with. He then gives a quick talk on the fundamentals of becoming attractive to women, the fundamentals of how to actually practice to get better, etc, and after giving some personalized advice based on your answers to his questions and giving more general advice, proceeds to give you some tasks to complete.

    The general structure of improvement outlined by the long term training program is as follows. Between skype calls, you complete the tasks given to you. You go out a minimum of twice a week to complete the in field tasks, and you do the other tasks on your own time (he gives drills/homework assignments related to improving lifestyle, becoming more witty/clever/funny, building conversational skills and tactics). You record ALL of this in weekly field reports that you send to him every Sunday.

    The first skype conference is different from all of the subsequent ones. Most skype conferences have the following structure: First, he’ll go over your field reports in extreme depth. This is by far one of the most helpful things about the program. Considering you did your homework properly and wrote detailed field reports, Fuji basically pinpoints everything you did correctly and more importantly all the mistakes that you made in every set, and what you can do to not make the same mistake next time. He tells you what you could’ve said in response to certain things the girl said in order to build attraction or accomplish some other task (especially when what you said was lame). He tells you what was missing in the set and the most likely reasons you got blown out. He considers not only the tactical aspect of the field reports but also your practice habits/inner dialogue (you are supposed to make notes of your inner dialogue in the weekly field reports). Did you spend enough time in field/do as many sets as you could’ve? Did you push yourself? Did you have the inner dialogue of someone who is confident and attractive, or of an insecure excuse-maker?

    After the field report analysis (which takes up most of the time), he usually then proceeds to give you more general advice of what you need to focus on next time, and then gives you very specific tasks to complete for next week (I’ll cover this more in the pros and cons section).

    What is the most important thing to follow during the program? You go out twice a week MINIMUM… ten sets MINIMUM until your sets are too long that this is impossible. You go to bars and clubs and other ANONYMOUS places. He emphasizes that this is essential because you need to go somewhere where you can try new stuff and mess up without worrying about consequences. Meaning college parties are NOT a valid place to practice. You are required to do ALL your tasks and he makes it very very clear that if you don’t put all of your effort in, you won’t get better and if you’re too much of a lazyass he might even just give you a refund and stop wasting both of yalls time.

    Of course, all of you are probably wondering what kind of results/improvements I’ve made from this. In a nutshell, the results have been ridiculous and life changing, and they’re only beginning. I basically started in February (I actually signed up in November but I didn’t do any of the tasks the first month and I took the December and January off because I was travelling). Like I said, I started off totally terrified and unable to approach strangers in clubs. Now, when I go downtown (I often go alone, sometimes with one wing) I am in set the moment I walk into each venue. I approach mixed sets, sets of like ten hot girls, couples, everything. I get a makeout about fifty percent of the time I go downtown, and numbers are nothing. I’ve fucked one girl from cold approach, and just last weekend had several girls that I met downtown on different nights contact me at night wanting to hang out (unfortunately I was on adderall and studying non stop the whole weekend so I had to turn them down). On almost any given night I’ll have numerous sets that last 20+ minutes. It’s been absolutely nuts. And more importantly, I spend so much time in set while I’m in field now (largely a result of certain tasks he’s given to me) that my rate of improvement is growing exponentially, especially when compared to 95% of community people I meet who go in field, do one approach, piss/drink/make retarded bullshit conversation with their wing for 20 minutes, and then repeat the process.

    Onto pros and cons of the program:

    PROS
    – Personalization and focus. These are the biggest strengths of the program. DJ finds out exactly what you need to work on next and tells you exactly how to do it (in the form of the drills he gives you). I have a friend who I referred to the program and his drills are totally different from mine. Focus was what I was missing when I used to go out but didn’t get any better. I’d go out and do approaches but I didn’t really know what to work on or how to work on it and as a result I didn’t really improve. Sound familiar anyone?
    – Having expert advice available and having one of the best people in the game tell you how to react to any given situation is INVALUABLE. Think about the last time you went over your field reports and tried to pinpoint how you should’ve handled situations that went poorly. It’s the situation of a novice trying to correct a novice, only you’re a novice with some forums and books at your disposal. But you don’t know if the critique you’re giving yourself is right… it could be totally off, as it was for me in certain cases. With long term training you have someone there whose been in every field situation you’ve been in and has handled it successfully in the past. Text message support is also invaluable… I can’t count the number of times I’ve texted Fuji in field asking for clarification on tasks, and gotten immediate answers.
    – Holistic approach. Fuji makes you work on more than just your game. Also gives you tips on improving your lifestyle and gives drills for this, gives you advice on fashion, and gives invaluable advice on inner game and most importantly, practice habist.
    – He generally shows great interest in the progress of his students. You can tell that he genuinely wants you to improve your life.
    – Has a very good way of explaining things. He’s done lots of research on how to be a good coach and as a result he is able to break down concepts in a really clear way. He tends to use a shit load of analogies to explain things.
    – The big advantage of long term training is just that: it’s long term. It takes a LONG time to get good at this. Bootcamps are great for making short bursts of improvement and giving you direction, but to really get good it takes a long time, and a program like this is great for making sure that you’re constantly headed in the right direction.

    CONS
    – One of the things that annoys me most about the program is that he is often late for the Skype conferences, and the reason is always because a previous call went over the limit. I guess this is a blessing in disguise because it means that he’ll take as much time as is necessary to go through everything, but it is kind of frustrating to sit around for fifteen minutes waiting.
    – While text message support is great, e-mail support is kind of shitty. I guess I can’t blame him because of the sheer volume of e-mails he gets (and he explained the situation to me), but he takes forever to respond to them and the answers are usually annoyingly brief. So basically in order to get more in depth answers to more complicated questions you have to wait until the next Skype lecture.
    – An inherent weakness in long distance coaching is that he can’t see you in field, so there are mistakes that you will make that he simply won’t be able to catch. I’m sure I’m doing things wrong with my body language and other things that are continuing uncorrected because of the lack of the visual aspect of coaching. If most of your problems stem from weird mannerisms/body language mistakes, this can potentially limit the amount that you improve. This is all of course not considering the option of taking a bootcamp with him (which he does give a dicount on).
    – You have to have a good work ethic. You have to be persistent, and have the ability to push yourself without a coach physically by your side. Otherwise you simply won’t get any results or see any improvement. This doesn’t sound like a con but for most people it will be, because I genuinely believe that most people don’t have it in them to go out time after time and scare the crap out of themselves by doing the most difficult sets imaginable. I feel like a lot of people NEED that coach there to push them, and will inevitably slack off without one. Fuji is VERY good at helping people get through this and building up their inner game and ability to practice, but I genuinely don’t believe that everyone can do it on their own.

    Hope that helped.
