Instructor(s) for Coaching:
Todd (RSD)
Date Program Took Place:
March 01, 2006
In early March, I took a RSD bootcamp. The instructor was Todd (Xaneus). I will say right off the bat that the bootcamp was not a cure-all, nor did I expect it to be. I went into the bootcamp with sticking points, and left with some of the same sticking points, although less pronounced. Then again, it's unlikely you can unlearn certain behaviors over the course of a weekend.
That being said, the bootcamp was worth the money. I would do it again.

I am confident that it will shave a year off my game (at least). This is not because of any particular routines but because of the general mindset it instilled. I have not taken other bootcamps, but RSD seems unique in that it focuses less on routines and more on being alpha and assertive.
But like I said earlier. The bootcamp is not a magic pill. The real work begins AFTER the bootcamp. The bootcamp will give you a basic mental frame for how you should go about honing your game. If you're the type that goes out to sarge maybe once every two weeks, then any bootcamp will probably be a waste. You'll most likely forget what you learned and revert back to your old habits.
If, on the other hand, you want to make a real effort develop this skill then I cannot recommend RSD highly enough. As for one particular instructor over another, I cannot say. I have no basis for comparison. I can say that Todd's instruction and advice has helped a great deal. He was also very professional. He went out of his way to make sure it was your night and you got your money’s worth.
My only complaint is the RSD tactical manual we received wasn’t very coherent. It had some interesting amogging tactics, but didn’t really review the topics covered in the seminar as thoroughly as I had hoped. While I digested much of the material from the seminar, I still wish I had taken notes. Again, that’s my only real complaint and has nothing to do with the instructor. I would recommend reading some e-books first—Juggler and Mystery—just so the concepts make a little more sense.
All in all, if someone is serious about their game, then IMHO, RSD is a good place to start. At some point in the future, I will look into other bootcamps--like Mystery and Juggler--just to be exposed to other ideas. However, I am happy with the choice I made, and I strongly recommend RSD.
Note: I have no doubt that some users will whine about me being a “newbie AFC” who got duped into thinking RSD was worthwhile--probably because of my "weak frame." Let them harp. Take my observations for what they’re worth.
