I’m packing for more adventure — I’ll be visiting London and Dublin this week and next — and in my rush I wanted to give you something to chew on while I’m gone. My timeliness in mentioning this woman’s blog post/rant/edict is about as good as BP’s timeliness in capping the oil spill, but better late than never. I ran across this […]

Podcast: The Return of Rob

by GK on June 21, 2010 · 23 comments

  Some things take a while to come back to us. Halley’s Comet visits us every 75 years, Punxsutawney Phil climbs out of his hole every Groundhog Day and the World Cup is back after a four-year absence. Eminem is trying to come back right now, but I’m not sure we want him. As for my old […]

People have asked me whether I miss being an instructor ever since I did my last bootcamp in March. My answer has remained a steadfast no — I rather like having my weekends to myself. Plus, I’m still getting phone-coaching requests and I have this blog, so I’m not going totally cold turkey. But I can’t exactly pat myself […]

Is pickup dead? Never!

by GK on April 1, 2010 · 2 comments

With the relative Armageddon surrounding Charisma Arts, I’ve noticed some people declaring this whole “pickup” thing dead. I’ve been doing some musing on the topic. Guys just aren’t going to pay $1,500 or more to learn how to meet girls in this economy, they say, and the whole culture of peacocking clothes, “alpha” body posture and opening lines is […]

My coaching future

by GK on March 26, 2010

I’ve been trying to devise a good compromise between leaving coaching entirely and offering an alternative for guys in the post-Charisma Arts bootcamp era. And since a few of you have been curious, I came up with a plan that should work for now. As I’ve said, I’m not going into business on my own. (Don’t […]

The final bootcamp

by GK on March 16, 2010

Consider the Spidey suit more or less thrown away now. At least my swan song was better than Tobey Maguire’s. After all the bootcamps I led in my 2 1/2 years with Charisma Arts, I had my final one last weekend in San Francisco (I’m still doing private instruction). I was almost hoping to have a rotten time, so it would make leaving […]

Lessons about ladies from the Juggler

by GK on February 1, 2010 · 4 comments

I’m loath to go so long between blog entries, but I’m back to juggling three jobs, not including my screenplay, so my free time is scarce. But stay tuned, because I do have some good posts I want to share with you. Speaking of jugglers, I spent a day in Seattle two weeks ago with Mr. Charisma […]

The downside of rating women

by GK on November 27, 2009 · 7 comments

Before I step on my high horse — with its Gucci saddle — I’ll admit I’m a repeat offender on this one. I think it’s an innocent game much of the time: two guys see a gorgeous woman walk by, and as soon as their eyes return to their sockets, they feel a need to rate her […]
