Shogun Method: My Confession (A Review)

Now before anything, I’ve got a confession to make. I’ve always been a junkie of what’s called the techniques invented by the so-called Pickup Artists, commonly known as PUAs. At first, I was really excited at learning these techniques because there were lots of reports online on how effective they were.

However, my excitement turned to disappointment when I tried some of these PUA techniques and failed. I thought it was my fault that I was not using the techniques right, but it turned out that I wasn’t the problem… you’ll find out why later in this article. 🙂

When I told my best buddy Matthew (who owns about this, he laughed. “Jon, man…” he said, “Forget about silly Pickup Artist tricks. Do yourself a favor and go find out about the Shogun Method instead.”

Curiosity Got The Better Of Me…

Intrigued, I went online and did a Google search. At first, I was somewhat skeptical as it looked just like another Pickup Artist program, but boy, was I wrong!

Truth be told: the Shogun Method gave me the shock of my lifetime. I was told that some of the techniques contained inside the Method were quite controversial, but nothing really prepared me for it. And so when I saw it for myself, it gave me a couple of sleepless nights.

In short, this may well be the Shogun Method review that you’d never expect to read. 🙂

Shogun Method: To Attract Is To Enslave

The core of the Shogun Method is what termed as “Enslavement” strategies – these are used to segregate a woman and isolate her from the outside world. When used correctly, a woman will drift away separated from her family and circle of friends. At the same time, she will grow more attached to you emotionally. Soon, she will be sucked into a world consisting only you and her.

And so you’ll see how this is miles apart from the shallow Pickup Artist mumbo jumbo like “approach openers” and (shudder) “peacocking”. The Shogun Method will equip you with tools and techniques that will last a lifetime: simply because they are rooted in the (hard) science of female psychology. In other words, the Shogun Method is not just another pickup artist fad. This stuff is validated to work scientifically.

Also, the Shogun Method is unique because it’s not merely a collection of techniques – instead, it’s a step-by-step roadmap which clusters up the techniques according to which stage you’re at with your target.

The IRAE Model / Roadmap

The heart of the Shogun Method is the famed IRAE Model – a roadmap consisting of four distinct stages in seduction, namely Intrigue, Rapport, Attraction, and Enslavement. According to Derek Rake, the process of seduction is linear and sequential – first, you’ll need to Intrigue a woman so that she invests her attention in you. When you have captured get attention and interest, then you’ll use the opportunity to build Rapport with her. With sufficient Rapport, you can then make her feel Attracted to you. Finally, to keep her Attracted to you (for a lifetime if you want), then you’ll need to Enslave her.

Most guys make the mistake of not following this strict sequence, and according to Rake, this is the reason guys fail with women.

For example, if a guy attempts to build Rapport without first generating Intrigue, his efforts would fall flat because her short attention span would make her look for other things to capture her interest. Or, if a guy tries to Attract a woman without first generating Rapport, he would just come across as creepy and stalker-ish.

It all made a lot of sense to me personally, and it helped explained my failed attempts previously when it came to dating and attracting women.

Shogun Method

Derek Rake: “Seduction Is Linear, Sequential, And One Step At A Time”

In the Shogun Method, you’re only supposed to focus on one stage at a time, and mastering the techniques contained in that particular stage. To me, this helped me to avoid information overload and it gave me a clear mind on what next to do with a particular woman that I am interested in.

Now I can’t claim to be an expert at the Shogun Method, but I’ve gone through the complete IRAE cycle once, and so here’s what I think. The Enslavement stage is the most exciting (to me at least!) because that’s where you can wield the most power when you start to indoctrinate a woman and make her subservient to you.

If that sounds rather controversial, then you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet…

Black Rose Sequence: What Is It?

Derek had warned not to use Enslavement techniques unnecessarily, but out of curiosity I had used one of its tactics (the Black Rose Sequence) on this girl I was going out with… and to say that it completely blew my mind would be an understatement. Well, not to mince my words, she had been quite a bitch to me, but now she’s as obedient to me as a puppy.

OK, to be fair to Derek and his clients, I can’t disclose what the Black Rose Sequence (or also known as the Black Rose Method) is in detail, but to summarize, you use it completely “erase” a woman’s self-identity, and install a new identity that’s completely subservient to you. In the Shogun Method, this new identity (“Persephone” in Shogun Method lexicon)  is completely under your control. It can indeed be quite sinister especially if you have malicious intentions.

I gotta tell you… the Black Rose Sequence is indeed quite special – once you’ve seen it in action, there’s never turning back. Heck, you’ll never go back to those lame Pickup Artist crap ever again… this I can guarantee you.

Shogun Method Free Download…?

I made the mistake of trying to find a free download of Shogun Method somewhere, but that proved to be rather stupid because of two things:

  1. Virtually everyone who offered “free download” of Shogun Method tried to either scam me, or infect me with viruses
  2. The real value of Shogun Method lies in the protected community where coaching is included as well as a constant stream of new techniques and materials through the Derek Rake Insider Labs

My laptop is filled with some “free” PDFs which are gathering digital dust. I bet yours is too. 🙂

To me, success with women is pretty essential (it’s do or die for me). Investing in Shogun Method (expensive though it may be) is one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made in my life, bar none.

The Final Warning You Should Take Heed Of

There’s one thing to watch out for, though: there’s no option to undo the effect of Enslavement as far as I know. If you’re not really serious about a woman, then subjecting her to the Shogun Method can be intolerably cruel.

For a presentation on the Shogun Method, click here. You’ll have to register with your email address, but it’ll all be worth it. You’ll have your eyes opened, I guarantee it.

  1. I saw the presentation and I think it was extremely well put together. I definitely want this. I really like it. The deal is amazing and I would buy it in a heartbeat!

  2. I’m gonna buy it!

  3. The reason this method works is because it teaches a man how to be a covert narcissist – which makes you a horrible person. You THINK she won’t eventually catch on, but she will. We’re teaching women now what to look for. You should probably learn to be a real man instead of a sneaky little weasel who wants to feel powerful.

    • Matthew Ganz says:

      Rebecca, all the Shogun Method does is to level the playing field for the guys. You know it too well yourself that the game has been rigged in women’s favor for eons now. Who’s more manipulative, men or women?

      Real men push themselves to understand women psychology better. And for this, there’s nothing better than Shogun Method.

      Your mileage may vary of course.

    • Melanie M says:

      Exactly. The guy who built this program seems hell bent to empower men to win in the battle of sexes! Why must men WIN? Can’t women WIN for a change? Why can’t MEN be ENSLAVED to women?

      Not all women manipulate men. I don’t. Why give MEN this KNOWLEDGE so that they can MANIPULATE women?

      Nothing wrong with learning about psychology and how to talk with women to engage engage in a more effective way. But to train men to become narcissistic and to “dominate” women is DANGEROUS.

      Nice guys win. I know this, because I am a woman.

      • Frank McDonald says:

        “Can’t women win for a change”

        They win all the time; this method will change that

      • This is not a battle of the sexes. “Why must men win?” It’s not a battle between men and women. It’s a battle between men (will explain more) “why can’t women win for a change?” Women always win, example fat woman dates fit guy, it’s “empowering” or “progressive” but when a fat guy dates a fit woman he’s a “pig” or a “pervert”, “why can’t men be enslaved to women?” Men used the right or left side at any point in time for information, women on the other hand used both sides of their brain and pass information between both sides at the same time exposing loop holes, now back to your first question, “Why must men WIN?” In the older times (middle ages, cowboy times to world war 2) men have died more climbing trees as a kid, the work force, died from sicknesses, and died in battle, nature (or God if you will) has made it so that more men are born then women but since ww2 all this has gone down (not completely tho) so this is a battle of who gets to pass on the gene pool.

        • Your intentions are to simply brainwash until We basically satisfied your “enslavement” stage ..The following of this cult like passage is a poor excuse, of a man whom hasn’t figured out that Derek Rake is possibly one of the worst mind control manipulators this world has seen.

      • I’ve always been a nice guy, too nice in fact. And… I always lose! I’m scared to try these techniques because I don’t want to become someone I’m not, but I’m also tired of being alone.

      • MoralsBeDamned says:

        That’s like asking a death row inmate to actually go ahead with his sentence after he’s given a way to earn his pardon . Its like asking a kid to eat broccoli after he discovers there’s a secret to getting unlimited candy for life . Why would we ?

    • Rebecca, I am completely with you on this. I have come across this page trying to find a way to undo this kind of manipulative action on a little sister’s friend who I see truly suffering. If anyone has advice or info I could follow, please let me know.

    • Dale White says:

      Rebecca …. womans nature uncovered ..AND YOU DONT LIKE IT…..control the snake or it will bite you.

  4. The Shogun Method seems like it’s a game changer. This could possibly be the end to the dreaded “friend zone” that so many guys get put in and can’t get out of. This method works, guys. Use it and you will never be friend-zoned again. Speaking from experience!

  5. I have the Shogun Method. Why publicize this and make the world know about it? If I were you, I’d just shut up about it and enjoy my success. Seriously.

    • I know your comment is old but I just start looking into it, and seems like pretty good stuff. And you are Right! Publicizing it is so stupid. Why let women know what we men are doing to get ahead. This is sacred knowledge for men. Why expose it? About to make it difficult again for us.

  6. Ankit Sharma says:

    How to use Shogun method in long distance after break up via phone calls?

  7. I find this both disturbing and incredibly arousing. I would never intentionally hurt a woman, so I’m deliberating on whether this is right for me. Frankly, it scares me a little. My main qustion is: how could this work on a woman that one only communicates with on the phone? The person I’m more than hot on lives in another country, but we speak on the phone. It’s a little complicated .Is it possible to use this programme in such a scenario ?

    Any advice wil be appreciated.

    • Matt "Cougar Hunter" Ganz says:

      William: I’ve never tried Shogun Method EXCLUSIVELY on the phone, so I don’t know. You’ll be hamstringing yourself for sure… if she’s worth it, why not go see her? If you master Shogun Method you’ll probably need one week face-to-face, tops.

      • Matt, thank you for your encouraging reply. I realise it’s a challenge. In fact I had a couple of email talks with the Man himself, Derek. He said it might be tricky, and he found my situation intriguing. he kindly offred to link up with me, if I jion the programme. I’ve been deliberating on whether to join, but I think I’ll be doing precisely this at the weekend.

        As for meeting her. I’m presently in Canada and she is about 5 thousand miles away ! There’s a high probability that I will meet her, but it’s not likely to be in the near future.

    • Gordon Fiddler says:

      As I was told by an ex green beret, do not make your intentions known but never use advance knowledge on someone who does not know such as black ops kill moves in fights. In response to this mind control techniques, if you use it, study your prey and make sure your prey is loaded $$$. Like Dexter would say, do not harm innocent people like normal everyday poor tax payers who are family oriented. Nail a single rich arrogant woman who NOT married. Don’t use it on a MARRIED or ATTACHED people. There are spiritual repercussions too if you hurt someone. I died twice in my lifetime and know if you die you feel the other person’s emotions and pain 100x more. So as Derek Rake mentioned, DO NOT USE IT TO HARM IT PEOPLE. Thank you and have a harm free 2018.

  8. Now, whatever happened to my typing? That’s the equivalent to my tongue-tied approach to women!

  9. I’m interested in the shogun-method

  10. Shogun Method is the bees knees. I do wish that they close up the membership soon, because I’d rather keep this knowledge secret among ourselves!

  11. You know they funny part about Rebecca’s comment, this whole technique is based on the nature of women so how are you going to stop it, so you found out about this your not going to change much the girls your warning aren’t going to listen to you they’ll eventually fall victim to their emotions women always do in one form or another even Rebecca will fall victim for it eventually she can keep saying that men are narcissistic and the technique is bat but deep down her nature says otherwise, you heard herself it works, I bet she wishes to be controlled.

    • Kris Grauel says:

      Rebecca most likely is attracted to and aroused by narcissists. She just doesn’t want us good guys who desperately need help to have any choice and therefore power.

  12. *the funny

  13. Johnathan says:

    Thinking about getting it.

    • You should. I did, and it completely changed my life… talk about the spillover effect (everything else apart from dating also improved – my work, family, and life in general.)

  14. Joel Mathew says:

    I’m a fan of mind manipulation and enslavement but will shogun method work on ex-wife?

    • Matt "Cougar Hunter" Ganz says:

      Yes. In fact, it works better on past / existing acquaintances (someone you already know, or ex girlfriends or wives) because of one simple reason – there’s more “shared experiences” to tap on.

      • Interesting. There is a girl I would like to reconnect with and I’m think of using the Shogun Method. She left the library, where she worked, around October. I stop coming around that time due to the weather and sickness. We had some shared experiences, small but powerful, IMO.

  15. My girlfriend is one who rarely puts in effort and very mind manipulative for me. If this product will definitely turn things around then I’m in

  16. Hi please I wanna get this to use on my ex girlfriend but I know we can’t meet but we talk on Instagram, is it still okay to get it and use it on her while typing on phone. I tried to hook up with her but she refused and she’s falling for someone. I wanna get it real bad but I hope I can still make a killing even if we chat with one another

  17. Ruben Cabral says:

    I honestly feel scared about this, I don’t want to hurt someone. It feels like brainwashing and I dont know some part of me wants to use it but my conscience is telling me not to.

  18. Hey, I really want this book but I’m scared that it is a scam. Can someone prove me that it’s not please? This is not to offend anyone who’s a member of this community. I’m just a little scared that it’s not real.

  19. Derek could I get the shogun method for $75 instead of $60 because I have 2 separate visa gift cards which you cannot combine so could I pay you that way and send each card to your email? Thanks

  20. ray fallinson says:

    it’s just basic pschycology and NLP

  21. Kris Grauel says:

    I’m with you. I am a great guy, but I do not have much witty shallow sitcom banter. I am a recovering alcoholic for 25 years. So the bar scene is out. But my dating life sucks. Good guys finish last. I have proven that to myself. So I am willing to try (almost) anything. But there are so m,any ripoffs out there.

    • Matt "Cougar Hunter" Ganz says:

      I know. I’ve been through many programs until I found Shogun Method. You don’t have to go through the same shit as I did!

  22. Kris Grauel says:

    I just want some control over my dating life. But I have a hard time trusting almost anyone online when it comes to dating stuff because of sales and marketing ripoffs.

  23. afaithfulclient says:

    look its not as extreme as it sounds ,except, if you know nothing about women except that pickup artist bullshit but there was one thing that really blew my mind,the intrigue stage ive really seen nothing like it!!More specifically the magic locket sequence because its somehow similar to ericksonian hypnosis but more accurate and a lot more effective im not even gonna describe what it does but it does wonders!the shogun method deserves its money lets just hope the price doesnt go up…

  24. Daniel Grove says:

    Hi. I just want to know if the shogun method works for a different language as well.

  25. This stuff sounds awesome. But will this stuff also work towards an ex gf who I know is a real master manipulator? I want to get her back but obviously her current man also uses the same stuff and seems more ‘experienced’ in using it.. ?? p.s. my ex is not naive to this whole shogun method thing.

  26. the keys to this is practice..practice..and practice..if someone want their ex back, you can’t get her back in a one single texts its not a magic bullet. you need to calibrate where she is in the IRAE model. i’m a practicioner almost 4 years now and shogun method always work like GANGBUSTER!!

  27. sumeetghai says:

    Hey I want to use this to a girl in my office. I am mad about her but she seems to be disinterested. Will it work for me???
