Very detailed break down. I enjoyed it since I can relate to your fighting experience. (Why counterpunch when you can take down for the kill ;) )

Congrats on the belt change

Congrats Queue!

Well written. Great point about the ego. Easy to make excuses, harder to admit weaknesses and learn from mistakes.

Great read Queue! Very well written and narrated. I love how your ego and the field became real life characters. Your ego can f with you. From time to time, I have to humble myself, remember I have much to learn, things I can improve on no matter how many successes come my way.

And congrats on the purple belt, it's well deserved!

Inspiring shit!
My girlfriend and I broke up for the final time last Wednesday (5 yrs relationship).
And now I can focus and get serious into pick up.
Really enjoyed your post because I also have the same problems: although I know a few tricks and theories that get me awesome results, my fundamentals are zero. And during the field I always trick myself into ignoring them.
Awesome post man.
Good luck with your "new" journey
Abraços,
AN

Very nice brother! Props on the purple belt, give me a shout next time your in AZ. Always down for meeting the Bravohoodlums (as Smooth calls it).

One of the most interestingly written FR's I've read thus far. Putting everything into boxing terms definitely makes it unique.

Great stuff brother! I really enjoyed the break down too and it made me think of some things that I hadn't thought of in debth before. Like how I have learned a lot of routines, tricks, stories, and little bits of knowlage about a wide range of subjects, that I can slowly expose girls to over time and there is always something new about me that they are learning as we go...

Anyway, I'm glad you got a lot out of your time with Bravo and congrats on the well deserved purple belt!

Wow, queue, this was one of the best FR's i've ever read. I guess one of the reasons was that it hit so close to home.

Don't you love the eerie similarities between this game and the fight game? It really is uncanny.

Your comparison to the counterpucher style is something that is so accurate and people really need to understand that. There are many who have trained boxing for a few months (or years even) and can explain everything about counterpunching, can step by step break down and critique your technique, yet when you throw them in the ring, they can't do shit. Obviously we all know that the exact same thing exists in pick-up. Shit.. i myself have read mystery method like 10 times and can probably explain the entire thing to you with great detail. But, my preformance in the field is not where I want it to be. I, like you, want to be the guy who can PERFORM, not just tell another guy how to perform. Anyone who does not have this mindset is really kidding themselves, because if you can't actually PERFORM to some degree you cannot really be an effective teacher.

I really like the discussion of leaving the open loops (like bait) and going into material only when it hooks. This really does make a conversation much more natural.

Great stuff queue, and congrats on the purple.

Don't limit yourself to being the "i MUST get the takedown" guy! Otherwise, a good sprawl and brawler will fuck you up one day!

Analogy to pickup: Don't limit yourself to being the "i MUST go direct/natural" guy!

to keep the fighting analogy going


anyone who has trained, has worked with an old guy that is slow and methodical...barely exerts any energy, and tools them


thats what I have been really working on since moving from LA, I want to be as efficient and effective as possible

exert the least amount of effort, and get the biggest gain


-I'm also kinda lazy... ;)
