Who is Derek Rake?
You might have heard his name being thrown around in online conversations about dating. And if you’ve watched my videos, then you know I mention him a lot, too.
But when you Google him, you might see a lot of different claims about him. Some say he’s “just another pickup guru.”
Others say his school of dating, Shogun Method, is “just like any other pickup or seduction program.”
And still others claim he has a “persecution complex,” whatever that means.
So what’s the real deal? Who IS Derek Rake, and what IS he all about?
This video will reveal the real Derek Rake as I, Fredo Hill, know him. He’s my dating coach, my mentor, and my friend – and in this video, we’ll separate fact from fiction once and for all.
Let’s start with the man himself.
Derek Rake is a dating coach based in San Diego, California. He’s the founder and head instructor of the Shogun Method school of attraction advice for men. And instead of teaching his students pickup techniques, he teaches something more basic, scientific, and provable. And that’s MIND CONTROL.
Now, one of the most common claims about Derek Rake out there is that he’s “just another pickup guru.”
And claims like that are not really surprising, right? Modern society as a whole tends to have a negative bias towards dating coaches in general. It’s true…
Here’s the kicker, however. To claim Derek Rake is a “pickup guru” is not exactly accurate for the two reasons.
- First, he doesn’t teach “pickup artist” stuff. In fact, he hates it – if you check his website at DerekRake.com, you’ll quickly get an idea how rabidly “Anti-Pickup” he is.
- And second, he’s not a “guru.” He’s not out to dominate the dating industry or anything like that. In fact, he ends up telling most potential clients to stay away from Shogun Method.
Because when you know what Shogun Method is all about, it’s easy to see why.
So what IS Shogun Method, anyway?
Likewise, if you Google Shogun Method, you’ll notice the common criticism is along the lines of “It’s just like any other seduction program.”
Again, such claims are normal, given the bias society has against dating coaches and their work.
But here’s the thing. Derek himself once told me: “Well, Fredo, if Shogun Method WAS based on pickup, they’d be right. 95% of all pickup programs out there are just as good as snake oil. That’s why I avoid pickup like the plague.”
Derek keeps telling me how he hates “pickup culture.” Now, he DID say not ALL of pickup was bad. He admitted that the original dating coaches – the ones who started the whole thing by applying psychological principles to the dating scene – were trustworthy and should be emulated.
It’s just that over the last two decades, countless “pickup artists” have taken the work of the masters and twisted them beyond recognition. Today, the pickup scene is a lot like the Yoga scene – there are countless bastardizations of the original art, all geared towards making a buck out of people’s insecurities.
And that’s why Shogun Method is different.
Shogun Method goes back to the basics, using the same scientific approach to dating as the originals did.
But here’s the thing: Since the time of the first dating coaches in the industry, many scientific advancements have been made, particularly in the field of Mind Control. Sciences like applied psychology and cognitive behavioral therapy have gone a long way.
And many of these advancements are – to put it mildly – inconvenient to modern sensibilities.
It’s like this…
Remember when Al Gore came out with the film, An Inconvenient Truth? It was a film about climate change and how our everyday individual pursuits of wealth, comfort, and happiness were destroying the planet.
It was called An Inconvenient Truth because that’s what it is – climate change is real, and we need to make some inconvenient adjustments to our lives if we want to survive.
Well, Shogun Method is exactly like that – an inconvenient truth.
Like I said before, the science of Mind Control has had some big breakthroughs in the last two decades.
It’s the reason why today’s TV shows are more addicting than ever. Producers have found the secrets to keeping audiences hooked – and it’s all thanks to Mind Control.
It’s also the reason why social media is inescapable. Companies have engineered sneaky ways to hold your attention hostage, making you check your phone 80 times a day. Again, it’s all thanks to Mind Control.
And it’s also the reason why doctors now know how to cure conditions like depression, phobias, and trauma.
Yup, Mind Control is THAT powerful today.
And that’s why Shogun Method is powerful. It’s completely based on established, peer-reviewed Mind Control science.
Now, with Derek Rake’s work, ordinary men can use the power of Mind Control to lead better relationships with the women in their lives.
Still, as I mentioned, Mind Control is pretty much an “inconvenient truth” to most of society. Using “science” to improve your relationships may sound weird to some people.
And in a society that’s high on political correctness these days, Shogun Method can be downright controversial.
If you looked at Derek’s website at DerekRake.com, one of his first stories you’ll come across is how he’s constantly being called names like “misogynist” and “sexist,” and how he’s gotten death threats from feminists in the past.
I once asked Derek where all the hate was coming from.
He told me: “It’s all because of the grounding principle of Shogun Method, Fredo. The grounding principle is this: The female mind has flaws, and the fastest way to Enslave a woman is by manipulating those flaws.”
Now, if you felt a little surprised by the word “Enslaved,” now you know where the hate is coming from.
After all, America has had a touchy history with slavery.
And the thought of “Enslaving” a woman seems cruel, illegal, and evil.
That’s where all the hate is coming from, Derek told me.
But then, Derek also told me this:
“Fredo, don’t worry about the hate. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. In fact, if Enslavement meant PHYSICAL enslavement, even I’d join in the chorus.
“The thing is: It’s NOT physical enslavement, but emotional. It’s the same kind of Enslavement you feel when a new Game of Thrones episode goes live.”
That’s what he said to me.
It makes me sad that some people refuse to see the distinction, but like Derek told me, I shouldn’t worry about it, and neither should you. Seriously.
What’s more, Derek ALSO got me thinking when he said this:
“Fredo, imagine if you could make your woman as addicted to YOU as she is addicted to Game of Thrones. Would that be bad?
“Of course not, right?
“In fact, that would be VERY good for your relationship. You’ll love each other more. You’ll support each other more. You’ll forgive each other more.
“Your risk of breaking up or divorcing goes down. Your fights get fewer and far between. You’ll treat each other the way you did when you were
“Addiction is the secret. It’s the inconvenient truth. People can disbelieve it or misrepresent it as much as they want. But it works, and it’s provable, and that’s all that matters to us.”
That’s what Derek told me. And that’s really the long and short of it.
Shogun Method is all about Mind Control. Mind Control is all about Emotional Enslavement. And Emotional Enslavement is all about making your woman feel totally, completely addicted to you.
I can tell you for a fact that it’s worked for me. In fact, it’s worked for 17,000 Shogun Method clients all over the globe, and that number is growing.
Now, before you even think about giving Shogun Method a shot, here’s a fair warning: It’s not for everybody.
It’s really not.
For instance, if you’re new to the dating scene, or if your goal is to “pick up” women, then it’s not for you.
But if you want a relationship with ONE woman…
…and you’re determined to make your relationship the happiest and most successful one she can ever hope to have…
…and if you’re willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen…
…then yes, you’re the perfect candidate to become a new Shogun Method practitioner.
If that sounds like you, then maybe I should roll out the red carpet for you.
