    Default Language Barrier - Possible to be a PUA without speaking?

    I'm in the military forward deployed in Japan. We're here for 3 years. Just read The Game and spent the last month in Australia putting it into practice.

    Once we get back to Japan, I know many routines and tactics may be out due to the huge language barrier and the moral and social differences of a culture like Japan. Alpha body language, kino, and some others still play without words but the I feel like some of the best stuff I've heard won't translate well..

    Thoughts? Ideas? Thx guys

    I don't think language is a huge barrier for the game. English is not my native language and many of the openers or routines won't translate to my language very well.

    So, it was a bit rough start to the game for me because I didn't have much canned material (or you might say newbie material) to earn me small successes, thus build up my motivation. Instead, I had to create the most of them. I still, usually need to rely on my creativity and need to do a lot of testing if I come up with a unique opener/routine of my own.

    In short, things might be a bit slow for me compared to the native speakers.

    But think like this, where I live, game is completely unknown. Since there are no commonly used material, there is no possibility of girls saying things like: "Oh, I think I heard that line somewhere, are you one of those players?" I have this secrecy.

    Moreover, the aspect of being an alpha male is broadly unknown. The only alpha males here are what we call 'naturals'. But these naturals have a major insufficiency, that when they encounter unusual social situations or a different woman, they might freeze up. They usually have calibrating issues, because they aren't aware of how they can do these things...

    What I'm trying to say is, just by knowing about the game gave me a huge edge around both guys and girls because internationally the game is rather less known.
    It's not about who I was or who I'm going to become.

    It's about who I am. Do it right here, right now.

    Body language is universal so work on that. The best place I find to watch my body language is in a gym. It has lots of mirrors and you can watch your self from many angles. It's helped me quite a bit.

    Learn some basic but key phrases in Japanese. It will really impress foreigners when you attempt to learn their language. It helps build comfort, rapport which then leads to attraction.

    Learn their customs. Pointing your finger can be considered rude. Use an open hand when you need to point.

    If someone gives you a business card you should receive it with 2 hands, read it while it is being held with both hands and bow your head slightly to acknowledge the person who handed you the card. These are just a couple of examples but there are many others you can read up on. You will have the advantage with just a bit of research and practice.
