Now that I’m able to squeeze some in-field coaching in around the usual Covid restriction bullshit, I thought perhaps you might like to see how it’s been going. I asked my most recent client, Der Kaiser, for some feedback I could use on the blog. He was kind enough to oblige. Here’s his full, un-edited reply:
I recently had one day (8 hours) of coaching with Nick in Kiev. I have been doing daygame consistently for ~1.5yrs and have not had a coaching before. I have read some of the standard books like Daygame Mastery and Infinite (both by Nick) and watched some videos on Youtube. The rest was learning by doing.
I have met Nick before via a mutual friend. You could tell right away that he understands daygame on another level as other guys I have spoken to before. Since I have never had coaching before, I thought it would be good to have someone look over what I am doing and spot some flaws / points for improvement.
I have had some results before already and do not have any form of AA. Therefore, I wanted the coaching to be primarily focused on technique. The coaching was build around my stop, body language and posture in set, verbals and tonality as well as general aspects of daygame.
At the start of the session I did a 5-6 demo sets in which Nick listened in and took notes. Afterwards we went over his notes and started working on the flaws. I also had some specific questions which I told Nick before and which we also went over (he spotted those points during my demo sets anyway). Following the feedback, we started going over my stop. He gave me some good tips here and demonstrated the nuances to me in person, which was actually really helpful in understanding the points he made. He also showed me a couple more stops and gave me tips on what to do after getting an IOI, which was quite different from what I used to do but makes much more sense thinking about it.
Nick also gave me some tricks on how to better play with words and be more “childish enthusiastic” and alternate intensity during the set. He also did some sets himself demonstrating the points he taught me before. Besides working on the stuff from the feedback, he gave me background on more about general aspects of daygame like different types of girls, how to “properly wing”, tips for on dates and so on.
Nick has a lot of attention to detail what I found very useful. I did really enjoy the coaching with Nick and can definitely say that it will help me with my approaches going forward.
If coaching is the sort of thing you’re looking for and you don’t want to waste your money on numpty fake coaches, have a look at my coaching page here, Alternatively, you might want to jump in with the best instructional material around, in which case my Daygame Overkill video programme is just the ticket
