Review from A. L. (iowa)

What can i say about ratisse ?

He is about 5'11", dark makeups around his eyes, with eye catching lip piercings, and hand cuffs in his left pockets, black t-shirts, gothic hair style, and finished off with black chains made out of cotton wrapped around his body. His eye contact is like a tiger ready to attack a prey, and he speaks with a very high authority. Yes, he was a very charismatic person, but my first impression of him was quite intimidating, but don't worry, he is pretty cool guy once you get to know him for more than 3 minutes.

I had a privilege of being trained by Ratisse on a bootcamp for one night in chicago. I met him at his place initially and we spent 2 hrs there first going over his principals when approaching the targets, what to expect in the field, going over some of the questions i had. The " personalized lecture" with ratisse was very brief but was very much to the point. He always cut to the chase without time wasted. The only thing I wish there would be more of was to have more structure in his lecture, but ratisse is more of a person who believes "less talking and more actions'

'nuf said.

Let me get to the meat of the bootcamp. THE FIELD !! What can i say about him? He can strike as a "cocky person" when it comes to him telling about his game. but he's gotta be. He is really good. I have yet to see a person who can escalate and make out with girls within 2 minutes on ALMOST EVERY SET (I can only recall 2 occasions when he failed to kiss close, mind you he did 10-20 demos that night). He uses his well calibrated social skill, high energy and his charisma to his advantage. and I was literally mind blown. It has been about 12 hours after I had a bootcamp and I am still shocked of what I have seen. He didn't do anything special. He didn't have a routine he relies on heavily. He talked to girls in the same manner he would talk to his students. He did this naturally without even flinching. So natural. He has internalized the game so much into himself now he's became the game. That is why I am so shocked by it.

As a boot camp instructor, he was pretty good. He walked me through his style of approaching the game several times. First he demonstrated his skills 2-3 times for me to observe and he made me mimic what he does. He did have a set of lesson routines that he uses for his students: demonstrate, students follow, students wing for ratisse, and later on ratisse wings for his students.

The only bad thing that I experienced in the field with him was that I could not catch up to him. he was so far advanced and threw me so much knowledge at once I could barely breathe through my neck, but I guess that is what the purpose of what the boot camp is all about.

GOOD: You want a fucking awesome PUA?? Here he is.He is good at multiple dimensions, natural game style, routine based gameTons of demonstrationsQ and A with him is just mind blowing.

BAD: His bootcamp could be more structurized, but I believe this would come with time. No worries.

I still have a hard time understanding why what he does works so well. I don't think he knows that either. If he could have broken down his game and his approach into smaller bits, I would have been able to internalize the info a lot faster.

I am gonna finish my review by saying this. My review has been completely unbiased. I have been completely honest with this and I can completely swear by it.

Review from Birdman (chicago)

My Review of Ratisse PUA

For those of you who don’t know Ratisse, he’s about 5’10, 160lbs, double lip piercings, enough energy to light up a small city, and enough game in his body language alone to out game half the assholes out there in the community today.

I first met Ratisse at a lair talk he was doing for Project-Chicago. His talk was fairly interesting, a lot of cool new one-liners to help oneself step up the sexual escalation ladder, a lot of ideas about body language, and a fairly complex yet satisfyingly comprehensive break down of social proof that clarified a lot of confusion I had built up from reading community jargon over the last 8-9 months of my pick-up career.

Yet, the line that truly caught my interest at the end of the night was Ratisse’s announcement that he would be giving away free bootcamps and 1on1s fairly consistently over the next year. As someone such as myself that has decided to take a year off in between college and med-school to work on nothing but game, obviously I jumped at this opportunity. And let me tell you, I cannot emphasize enough how happy I am that I got to work with Ratisse in the field.

Over the last 8-9 months, I’ve taken 4 boot camps with some pretty big name guru’s (I don’t want to disclose their names in this review, but if you want to contact me personally about my opinions of these other guru’s individually, I would be happy to answer your questions – my email is "edited out"). I’ve worked with a number of guru’s over phone consults, taken a couple 1on1’s, and read A LOT of posts/ebooks. That being said, I can honestly say without hesitation – Ratisse is THE BEST GURU I HAVE EVER SEEN IN FIELD EVER.

Ratisse in field is a fucking animal. I have never seen anybody know how to work a room better than him. This man can walk into a venue, and by the end of the night he will have made friends with almost everyone in the bar, collected about 12 phone numbers, social proofed himself out the ass, set up numerous day two’s, and probably bounced a hot girl or two to some sort of after hours location.

I’m not ENTIRELY sure how he does it, but he has been teaching me slowly. I can honestly say that almost every minute I hang out with him, I learn something new. I think his true strength lies in the fact that he has an AMAZING understanding of how social proof works. That, combined with near flawless body language, a natural ability to lead, impeccable sexual escalation and kino skills, and his ability to juggle multiple ideas in his head at once (including his ability to handle logistics AND keep an eye on his student at the same time) all make him a ridiculously amazing PUA.

On top of that, Ratisse gives more of a fuck about how his students are doing than almost any other PUA I’ve met. This guy legitimately wants the people around him to get better, and he’s very good and figuring out how to teach.

Within one night of working with Ratisse, I would say that my in-field skills jumped up equally to what they would in a month if I was working on my own. One awesome thing Ratisse does, is he would come up to me while I was in set and subtly hold a note on his cell phone out for me that would tell me what to do – I would do it, and the girl would be all over my shit. Within a night, Ratisse turned me from a pua-in-training that would go up to girl after girl approaching, to a pua that had girls approaching me telling me I’m hot because they had been watching me interact with other people all night. And let me tell you, the difference is awesome. He also gives you great advice in between sets while you’re just chillen, gives great text message advice, and is just a cool fucking dude to hang out with. Highly recommended.

The only down side that I can see with Ratisse, and this is nothing more than pure conjecture on my part since I have yet to see this other side of him, is I’m not sure how good he would be in giving long-term dating advice that is specific for me. Eventually I would like to settle down with one girl in a comfortable and highly sexual relationship, and Ratisse just seems like the type of guy who sleeps with a lot of women (96 in the last 18-19 months I think to be exact). And again, I might be wrong, but I felt that I had to have a down side for Ratisse since I’ve said so many good things and this is the best I could come up with.

I’ve worked with a couple other guys in the community (Entropy comes to mind) that I feel have done wonders for my inner game, and have given me advice on how to find a girl that I really like and connect with on emotional level – and I think other people might be better for this type of game. But if you wanna learn how to meet a lot of girls that are interested in you quickly, figure out how to social proof yourself, build a social circle, have impeccable body language, and sexual escalate like a pro – then Ratisse is your man.


Enjoyment of Life

People now a days are in so much of a rush trying to achieve goals. When one is achieved they rush on to the next without fully enjoying the process. This causes a sense of unending hurry to get things done, but when each task is done there is a feeling of emptyness. Yes there is a thrill right at the end, but it is jaded because while you may spend days in order to complete a task, you only enjoy a few moments of satisfaction and happiness. This does not need to be.

Learn to enjoy your surroundings,situations, all the moments in between the tasks and appreciate being alive.

Review from El Topo

So I wanted to chime in here...
Not to toot my own horn, but I know that I am a good instructor in the community...
that being said, I wanted to tip my hat to Ratisse.

Let me just say that Ratisse is not only bad ass for doing this, but he is also an amazing guy as well as an amazing instructor. I am not sure if you know him personally, I am sure many guys may know him better than myself, but he is an impressive mix of teacher and PUA. He is an amazing instructor that really puts his all into his students and his own progression.

I have met a lot of instructors in the community and I would want Ratisse to be working working with me over many of the other ones I know.

In order to be good at teaching, you have to have a HUGE range in order to facilitate a wide variety of students. Ratisse has a great rounding of all the things necessary, probably the most valuable is that he cares about who he is working with.

If you want some great Instruction (apparently for FREE) then you're an idiot not to take him up on this.

He is for real.
Plus no instructors other than GoneSavage and sometimes myself have ever been as giving as Ratisse.
when you have a Superior Instructor freely that is RARE!

This is also something that is not seen in the Community, there are few like this, who actually care about working with people and are willing to sacrifice what other instructors won't....GREED and Financial Well being!

If you like what he is doing post about it EVERYWHERE and help him out!

Funny cause i write this as I raise all my prices...In any case, the dude is a bad ass guy...see you guys soon!
