"Infield Footage Product Showing Women Being Successfully Picked Up During The Daytime"
March 15, 2015
FULL DETAILED REVIEW
Daygame Domination is a product that was a long time in the making, as Yad had a camera team follow him around periodically over a couple of years, recording his interactions with women during the daytime. The footage was then cut down to the interactions shown here, which are analyzed by Yad and Richard La Ruina aka Gambler.
The entire product is a video series, of which there are seven modules and two bonus modules. The first module is an introduction and shows clips from some of Yad's interactions with some explanation of his style, while the rest of the modules each focus on one complete interaction with ongoing commentary throughout.
You should note that there is more commentary than there is of the infield footage itself. A whole interaction might only be ten minutes or so, but the video could be over an hour long. It's worth keeping this in mind as it can feel like Yad is spending a lot longer talking to the various women than he actually is.
The Yad Method
If you've seen Yad in any other products before then you'll be familiar with his method for meeting women during the day. He approaches women directly on the street and takes things forward from there. He does get solid results and you'll see he gets the phone number with each of these women, as well as kissing a couple of them.
He does more or less the same thing each time, with the opener he uses never really changing at all. So the opening line is planned out in advance and then the rest of the interaction is mostly spontaneous, with Yad focusing most of the conversation on the girl and not himself.
Some of the things he does are intended to create attraction, while others are aimed at developing a connection to make sure the woman will be more likely to want to see him again for a date. There's a bit of an explanation of this in the first module, and then in the commentary in the other modules Yad will point out why he is doing or saying certain things.
One thing you'll see demonstrated that Yad is great at is handling obstacles that women bring up. So in one of the videos the girl tells him pretty much right away that she has to go and begins walking off, yet he's able to keep her there and end up getting her number. This is an area where many guys struggle, and Yad goes into detail in the commentary on why he prefers it if a woman isn't too receptive straight away and how it means she's probably a higher quality woman.
Structured Versus Unstructured Learning
One of the things that stood out about this course is there's no real structure when it comes to teaching a model or method to use yourself. You'll get a clear idea of the opener to use, but beyond that it doesn't really teach you how to do what Yad is doing. If you're able to learn just by seeing something demonstrated then this won't be an issue for you, but for many guys they'll need a more structured explanation of what they should be doing.
There's no discussion really of body language when it comes to approaching the woman initially, so you'll have to pay close attention to the clips to see this for yourself. Something that Richard points out is that a lot of guys can do the opener and make a strong impression but then they fall into boring conversation and lose any interest the woman may have felt. This is an area where Yad is pretty strong, but it's not shown how to do this yourself.
One of the reasons we rate Daygame Blueprint so highly is there's a lot of detail when it comes to explaining the actual model to use. Nothing is left for you to try and figure out yourself and you'll come away with a crystal clear idea of what you should be doing during the interaction. You also get to see some other coaches demonstrating the method besides just Yad.
There's no doubt that Yad is one of the very best when it comes to picking up women during the daytime. However when it comes to clearly teaching his method then arguably some other dating coaches are better at this. In Daygame Blueprint it's Andy Moore aka Yosha who provides a lot of the structured explanation of the method and really holds the whole seminar together when at times Yad gets distracted a bit.
Here in Daygame Domination there's a lot of discussion between Yad and Richard, and while much of it is good in explaining what's going on, at times it goes off on a tangent. Whereas Andy was good at keeping things focused, Richard goes off track more often and doesn't have the same experience at using this model himself and being able to explain to the viewer what to do.
When it comes to the infield footage though, Daygame Domination is superior to Daygame Blueprint. The footage is better quality and there's more of it, featuring whole interactions rather than short segments of the interaction.
Variety Of Situations
If you've seen Yad in action before, you would have seen him approaching women on the street. It's more of the same here, apart from one interaction where he approaches a woman sitting down inside a university campus.
So while the demonstrations are good, it does seem a bit repetitive to show the same situation again and again rather than adding some variety. This applies to the fact that all the woman are approached on the street, but also in the same way.
It probably would have been more beneficial to see Yad approach women in other situations, such as in coffee shops, book shops, museums, supermarkets or any other places. The approaches take place in London, where there are many women walking the streets, but not everyone has high traffic areas like this and often other places can work more in your favor. It might be harder to film in other places due to trying to conceal a camera, but would have been preferable from a learning perspective.
Similarly, it would have been great to see some different styles of approach. What Yad does works very well and is well suited to his personality. His style of approach is quite direct, which may not be optimal for every guy in every situation. So it would have been nice to see different types of approaches tailored for different environments. However this isn't just a criticism of Daygame Domination, as it also applies to Daygame Blueprint and most similar products.
You will get to see different types of girls though, as Yad talks to a few English girls and also some foreign girls living in London. Their personalities are very different and also the way they react, so this is good to see. If you find yourself often approaching foreign girls, there's some discussion here from Yad and Richard on what guys often do wrong and what you're better off doing instead.
The two bonus modules feature footage of Yad interacting with women without any commentary. For the most part it is the same women from the other modules, but there are a few new interactions included as well.
It's worth seeing these in real time, without all the commentary, so you can see the pace they move at and the total times of the interactions. Yad demonstrates that you don't really need to talk to women for that long before getting a number of taking them for a coffee.
I would say that it might even be worth watching the bonus modules first to get an idea of Yad's style and see what he does, then you can watch them again with the commentary and you'll notice things that you didn't pick up the first time around.
The Bottom Line
This product is a series of infield videos of Yad approaching women during the day, interspersed with commentary from Yad and Richard La Ruina. If you're able to see techniques in action and then replicate them yourself, this will be a solid product to check out. If you need a more structured method and game plan to learn from, this is lacking here. Put simply, this product shows you what to do without really telling you how to do it.
If you're mainly interested in seeing infield footage, this product might be just what you're after. But if you'd like more of an explanation of how to meet women and more examples of what to say, we recommend Say Hello by Christian Hudson.
